[Resolved] Custom fields in iCal feeds

  • Hi,

    I am working with an ics file that has custom fields in it — not part of the ics spec.


    X-TRUMBA-CUSTOMFIELD;NAME="Contact Name";ID=28380;TYPE=SingleLine:Contactperson Name

    Is there a way to bring this in and display it with amr-ical-events-list? I see this note, but I am not seeing my fields:

    “Lowercase fields are additional fields added by this plugin and derived from the iCal fields for your convenience.”

    noted on my list! not easy off top of head. Might have to be an add-on so as not to lumber the whole plugin with specific ‘trumba’ wtmb code

    Thanks. Could an add-on allow for custom mappings?

    In this case, the key would be:
    X-TRUMBA-CUSTOMFIELD;NAME=”Contact Name”;ID=28380;TYPE=SingleLine

    and the value would be:
    Contactperson Name

    The problem is, with trumba specifically, these custom fields come over with a custom ID (the “ID=28380” part). So, it would be hard for you to add code specifically for this. Does that make sense?

    Also, FYI, Trumba is an online calendar: http://www.trumba.com/

    Hi Bill,

    I’m wrapping up testing on additional filters etc to allow such custom fields…

    Is that the best ‘trumba’ example you have? It does not appear to have a ‘value’ as defined by the ics RFC5545 spec. IE: the bit after the colon :. All the other bits are properties, parameters or modifiers. Strictly speaking there should be a ‘value’.

    x-prop = x-name *(“;” icalparameter) “:” value CRLF

    Example: The following might be the ABC vendor’s extension for an
    audio-clip form of subject property:


    Also the name doesn’t need quotes around it.
    By the way….. from what I can see, my plugin amr-events does much of that (except paying for events) inside wordpress without charging you monthly.

    Hi Bill, Researched it all quite a lot, found a variety of examples and figured out how it might work. Took a while.

    If you still want to do it, it’s possible:

    anmari, thanks so much for making changes and offering this add-on. I’ll take a look.
