Support » Plugin: Events Manager » Customizing the .ICS Feed

  • Resolved addicottweb


    I’ve set up a calendar extract via the ICS link (as described here: to feed into a Google calendar, and from there to a digital sign.

    This all works fine. The problem is in the event location. The event dialog insists on using a full address, but for most events, all I want to put there is a room (so basically, just the location name). All of the events are at the same location, so it looks very odd to look at an event calendar displayed on the wall in the same building as the event, and all you see is the building name and address.

    Is it possible to customize the .CIS feed like that?

    you can modify template file under events-manager/templates/templates/ical.php

    to use templates:

    eg. wp-content/themes/Your Theme/plugins/events-manager/templates/ical.php

    *you can also change format under Events > Setting > Formatting > Calendar > Ical Feed Settings

    Hey there, I am using the “iCal Description” field to display some custom field information. It works fine except for fields that use checkboxes. It adds some characters I don’t want there:

    instead of printing:

    Selfs, Tans, Satins

    it prints


    Is there anything I can do to resolve this?

    You could try using PHP unserialize or json_decode before outputting them and use a foreach loop.

    Hi @timrv thank you! Do you offer this as a paid service or do you know someone who does? I need a few other tweaks. I would put together a list and get back to you once I am done.
