Hi there, just found your website! Really good idea. Just wondering: what about a public iCal- or Google-calendar to stay updated on all the concerts? That would be so amazing!!! Bests, Aeiou

Thanks Aeiou!

If you look in the bottom left-hand corner of the page, you can see an iCal icon. If you click this, you can import the gigs on this site into your iCal/Google Calendar/Outlook etc.

It's still in development so at the moment it just includes all the gigs on the site at the time you click it, unfortunately not as an updating feed yet.

The plan is to enable users to choose and export individual gigs, or their "My Gigs" from their profile.

Thanks again,
Craig

Hi Craig! Thanks for the response! Integration in iCal works fine, but when I add it to my Google Calendar then all events are shown 8 hours too early. Seems that the time-zone in your calendar is not set? Thx, Aeiou

Hello... I asked at Google about the timezone-flaw and it seems that the flaw is actually in your calendar file. Dont know if thats important for you, but you might want to change it ... a calendar displaying the wrong times is not very useful in the end, you know...

"The source problem is that the public feed is inadequately defined for time zone. Either the events should be written in Z-time (UTC time) or have a TZID parameter for recurring just as Gcal does. So I think only the feed creator can offer the proper solution."

Here's the link to the discussion at the forum:

Hi Aeiou,
Thanks a lot for the help!

I subscribed to it with Google Calendar and noticed the time problem too.

The feature is still in development. As I mentioned, it doesn't yet work as a feed/subscription, only as a one-off import.

I've contacted the original plugin developer and hopefully this feature will be working properly in the not-too-distant-future!

Cheers
