We provide a link on month view (and other views, but that’s a good example) which lets you download an .ical format file containing event data – take a look here for an example:
(Look below the calendar grid, on the right).
Hope that helps!
Is there any means by which – if a user has exported the ical file for the month – but then events are added/edited after the fact, to sync without re-exporting the ical file? or at least some means of doing it that will only import the new dates or changed dates without the user having a number of duplicate entries in their calendar?
We are using it for a sport’s team site and the dates can be somewhat fluid.
Thanks for any insight you can give.
Subscribe to the URL webcal://example.com/events/ical
As your subscription updates the feed, newer events should be added.
Thanks a lot for answering.
I must be missing something – because when I try that url (with my own domain of course – webcal://2002aasabres.com/events/ical ) it comes up as not found.
I am sure I am doing something incorrectly or need to change how something is configured.
Are there any steps you can recommend i double check?
kordic27, you must set your permalinks for something other than default.
I’ll have to look at the code as I don’t think it’s returning a complete list of events.
Andy’s suggestion sounds like exactly what you are looking for. If you do not wish to change your permalinks, then try the following URL instead:
Hope that helps. Cheers!
THanks to both of you for trying to help me out. Full disclosure – this is my first time trying to use wordpress so I have been slow to fully understand all of the nuances, so I appreciate your help and patience.
Anyway, that link above did not work either. I have screen captured my permalinks – so maybe that will provide some insight into what i am doing wrong?

You need to change the permalinks to something other than default.
ok, thanks. I did that. I changed it to ‘post name’.
I also updated the .htaccess file so the existing links that broke now work using the new format. So, that part is all good.
however this link: webcal://2002aasabres.com/events/ical
still comes up as not found.
any thoughts to where I might go from here?
M, I used the link that Brook supplied and was able to subscribe.
Hi Andy et al,
Thanks for getting back to me – again.
Hmmm, that is weird. It still does not work for me. I am at the point where I think I must be missing something obvious. I have plugged that URL (webcal://2002aasabres.com/?post_type=tribe_events&ical=1) into my phone’s browser as well as to my laptop’s IE, Chrome and Firefox it comes up with nothing.
If i use the alternate http://2002aasabres.com/?post_type=tribe_events&ical=1 — it does create an ical file to download – but it does create duplicates if you have already done an import and also it doesn’t seem to import all of the dates… just the first 10 or so…
(when I use the ical button on the site itself, it seems to import ALL of the date).
So, I am not sure what I am doing wrong…
