iCalendar/.ics feed not correctly imported: loosing CONTACT + LO (7 posts)

    CONTACT and LOCATION information is dropped during feed import.

    Is this a known bug? It's somehow strange since other values are imported in about the same way - except LOCATION and CONTACT have multivalue attributes.

    Howto reproduce:

    1. create an event via user interface
    2. export the event (activate export of events first) in ical format via "add to calendar" button)
    3. save the exported event so some Test-Event.ics
    4. make Test-Event.ics accessible via web
    5. configure Test-Event.ics as input source via all-in-one-event-calendar-settings --> "iCalendar/.ics Feed URL"
    6. Import the exported event again (optional: delete the original event first)
    7. wonder about the missing CONTACT and LOCATION information (which was correctly exported in Test-Event.ics

    Here is the example:

    diff Test-Event.ics Test-Event-after-reimport.ics
    < DTSTAMP:20120211T140253Z
    < CONTACT:Testuser (0815)
    > DTSTAMP:20120211T140205Z
    > CONTACT:
    < LOCATION:Am Hauptbahnhof\, 53111 Bonn\, Deutschland
    < URL:http://beta.adfc-bonn.de/ai1ec_event/test-event/?instance_id=?instance_
    < id=
    > URL:http://beta.adfc-bonn.de/ai1ec_event/test-event-2/?instance_id=?instanc
    > e_id=

    I use php < 5.4, i.e this one of two available classes is used:

    Thanks for the feedback. I will check to see if this is being worked on, in the mean time if you are not aware, we have a trac setup here: trac dot the-seed dot ca

    Thank you for your reply. Am I supposed to feed this bug into the mentioned trac? Dublicate data or would a link to this support forum be sufficient?

    Thank you for replying.
    I can confirm we are tracking your issue and no additional input is necessary. You should see this implemented soon.

    This is great news. I tried to dig into the code but got somehow lost due to the abstraction layers and a lack of PHP debugging experience.
    We would, of course, provide the QA feedback. Thanks in advance!

    Thank you guys for the excellent calender plugin. I scimmed the tickets at trac dot the-seed dot ca but couldn't find any related to this issue reported. Sure that it's not drowned in the crowed?
    As a workaround we currently add the contact and location information to the ical description tag, although that does break the uniform look of the events.

    Yup I can definitely confirm this bug.. because of this none of the events being imported have any maps either which reduces the usefulness of this plugin and being able to import calendars even more.

    Pretty good plugin overall but this is the one main thing that is standing in the way of it being great
