    Pretty simple really.

    Activate the ESS plugin. Now there will be an additional ESS menu item under your Events menu. Open it.

    Check the settings to see that they'll work for you. Click on the Syndication tab.

    Click the + icon next to the Syndication tab to add a new feed URL in the form:


    Then fire it up and see if it works.

    There are still some bugs that they need to work out, but it mostly works.

    Is the source running the ESS plugin as well?

    What error did you get?

    I do not think the source is.
    Error Message - "The ESS Feed request timed out with URL ..........."

    Yeah, that's probably the problem.

    I believe the docs give a sample ESS feed to try out. If you can't find that you're welcome to contact me through the contact page at SustainableSources.com and I'll give you a link to one of my experimental feeds (though you might be able to figure it out by just looking at the site and adding ?em_ess=1 at the appropriate place....)

    Hi guys,
    could you send me the URL of the ESS feed you would like to subscribe?
    Like have mentioned Bill, in Events Manager, the URL should end by ?em_ess=1
    e.g. http://yourdomain.com/blog/?em_ess=1

    We are working to be also able to syndicate to other king of feed (ical, google calendar, facebook events) even if they are far less precise then ESS.

    For the moment you can only subscribe to ESS feeds.
