Subscribe to Events Categories
I’ve installed the latest update to the events plugin. You can now subscribe to events. That means you can have them automatically display on your calendar. It’s a bit tricky but here’s how it works:
If you go to a Calendar view, like for instance the Book Club Calendar. You will now see a “subscribe” button in the upper right
When you click that button, you’ll see an iCal url
Copy that URL and go to your calendar. I’ll use Google calendar as an example but other calendar applications should be able to use it also.
Click the “Add a friend’s calendar” button and select “From URL”
Paste the iCal URL into the URL of calendar box
I’ve found you need to remove the
time_zone=blah part from the end of the URL in order for the times to work properly. I’m not sure if this is a plugin bug or an issue with my setup.
Click the Add Calendar link and it should be added to your calendar.
You can also just import individual events directly to your calendar. There is a new button on events topics labeled “Add to Calendar”
You can click that and pick an option. If you don’t have a Google calendar, the .ics File option should work for your calendar.
I have found that the time information for events added this way is not getting inserted. This is probably a plugin bug. It should get fixed eventually.
