How can I add the iCal URL to my website

Place the following code to your theme
echo ical_wp_calendar_getIcalUrl();
or use a widget like the Text Widget
to your sidebar and place a code like

<ul class="feed-list">
  <li><a href="http://your-web-address/?wp-calendar-ical">All Events (iCal)</a></li>
</ul>
How can the list of feeds be limited?

The list can be limited in two ways. By a single event id (like given by the placeholder {event_id} ) or by adding ‘category=’ to the feed url, you can limit to events, which are asssigned to the (post) category. The feed url will then look like

http://your-web-address/?wp-calendar-ical&category=1
