Events Manager
[resolved] iCal feed Not Properly Displaying Multiple Events in Outlook (5 posts)

    I recommend Events Manager to many of my clients.

    One such client has requested having an ical feed for their events.(particularly for outlook users, as it's a large segment of their member audience)

    http://www.iidasw.org/events/2012-iida-sw-unveiled/

    We've found that it is adding the events to the calendar, but it's double posting them into outlook. So if they sign up for event Y and then for event Z, they get two calendars in Outlook instead of two events posted on the same calendar.

    I think I found something similar here in this post, but I'm not quite sure how to check/implement...

    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-events-manager-how-do-add-an-event-to-an-outlook-calendar?replies=19#post-3062526

    Can you please let me know what I need to do or fix to get these events to register on the same calendar if a user already has the feed in the calendar from downloading a past event?

    Also, it would be nice if we could get some admin control over the buttons (I have to restyle them to match every time there's an update) or at least have the same style of look for both iCal and Google, since most would list both if they're listing them I think.

    Thanks so much for the hard work, it's a great plugin.

    did you try updating recently? I actually removed that line along with other unnecessary ones because the other clients didn't need it either.

    how are you styling these? you could just use e.g. #_EVENTICALURL and #_EVENTGCALURL in your formats as links and then style them with css on your theme, they shouldn't change that way.

    How would you do this programmatically, Marcus? I mean so that the #_EVENTICALURL placeholder output on the page is somehow transferred into a button link that can be coded once in the formats and works across all events without having to code the .ical url into the css for each event?

    To modify the placeholder, you'd do as described here - http://wp-events-plugin.com/tutorials/modifying-placeholder-default-information/

    However, the best way would be to use HTML/CSS to make this work in your formats e.g.

    <a class="yourclass" href="#_EVENTICALURL">text</a>

    The CSS would be added at a higher level e.g. in your theme styles.css file or using a plugin like jetpack to add custom CSS to your theme.

    Great - that works perfectly for me. I couldn't work out how to include the link. Thanks Marcus.
