Google+ Events Bug (7 posts)

    Hi,

    I'm just now using your plugin and trying to combine it with Google+ Events which seems to be really close to working.

    I've found that the plugin will add an extra string of characters "&ctz=" to the end of an Event URL and this will break a link to a Googe + Event.

    Example, see July 26th here, the second link titled "Event Testing"

    The More Details link will take you here - https://plus.google.com/events/c0phfcar939351o3tski45dbrts&ctz= which you'll get a 404 page in google +.

    If you remove "&ctz=" the event works properly https://plus.google.com/events/c0phfcar939351o3tski45dbrts

    Any ideas how this string is being added?

    Hello,

    This is definitely a bug. The plugin shouldn't add the &ctz= thingy when the timezone is set to "Default" in the feed settings.

    I've updated the development version of the plugin with a fix for this.

    However, note that the dev version will still add &ctz= if a timezone other than "Default" has been selected (&ctz=Europe/London, for example), as this is still useful for non Google+ calendar feeds. So, for Google+ feeds, you'll need to leave the timezone set to "Default". A better fix I might look into for the future could be to auto-detect whether the feed is from Google+ or Google Calendar, and adjust things accordingly.

    Thanks Ross, do you think this fix will be pushed to the production plugin soon or will you hold off for a while?

    To be honest, it probably won't make it to production any time soon.

    Hello,

    You'll need to set the "Timezone adjustment" option to something other than "Default".
