[Plugin: The Events Calendar] Custom RSS feed

Viewing 8 replies - 1 through 8 (of 8 total)
  • Anyone have any idea on this? I’d hate to write something custom if I’m missing an easy solution.

    Maybe use the regular-posts hack and push them through a different feed that way?

    It definitely isn’t doable out of the box; you would probably have to either need to find a third-party plugin that allowed for tweaking the feed, or write something from scratch. Sorry I couldn’t offer up more here.

    Hey olerules. After talking with the team about this a bit more, we’re wondering what purpose you’d be using this more fully-populated RSS feed for…just so we can get a better feel on how to integrate something like this. Is it merely for frontend users to be able to see event details entirely in their RSS feed, or are you planning on doing more with the data? If you could give some thoughts, even in general terms, it’d be awesome.

    I was planning on using it as a way to provide data to a mobile app.

    I see. Would you just be having readers subscribe to the feed, or would it be pulled into/displayed elsewhere?

    I’m interested in this too.

    I would like to show full details of the event in feed or at least to show something that indicates that the post is an event and link to the full details.

    My idea is to provide only one feed so the users can have both posts and events in one place. I already managed to include the events in the main feed [*] but would like to customize/add information.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Hey there lfreitas. Thanks for the feedback here. We are definitely aware of the interest in more robust RSS feeds; these have been one of the more commonly-requested features since we launched 2.0 and we’re looking into how we can integrate something very much along the lines of what you’re going for sometime down the road.

    It probably won’t be any earlier than the 2.1 lifecycle but know that this is not falling on deaf ears 🙂 Sorry I couldn’t offer up more in the short-term, though. Let me know if we can do anything else.
