From the forum
First, I love the plugin. Very versatile. Thank you.
Apologies, it seems in the recent database move the user table was not copied cleanly – it lost the auto increment which meant that new user registrations were failing. Took a while to realise what was happening (hint – lose blank new user emails mean something is wrong!) and to get the auto increment added back.
For anyone interested in how:
The only way I could get it to work was to copy the table (always have a backup!), then use a manual SQL Command. The phpmyadmin ‘Copy’ table and add auto increment was not working.
ALTER TABLE tablename MODIFY ID BIGINT(20) AUTO_INCREMENT;
Then just to be sure – check that the next auto increment number is showing up in your database as bigger than the largest ID you already have.
I’m not a fan of facebook…..however I get asked the questions, so have had to develop some familiarity, so here’s a quick reference until facebook changes things again.
Before you get too stuck in to facebook for your events, you may wamt to look at oreilly.com’s advice on perhap not using facebook as the home for your public events.
They really do not make it easy do they ? There is no obvious ‘Export all’ as there is in the personal page. So…Pretend you’re only exporting one event from your page.
Click the event
Copy that webcal ics address and use it wherever you need to subscribe to that set of events.
After logging in look for the export events option, not just for one event but ALL upcoming events.
Go to your all events page: https://www.facebook.com/events/list.
In the top right corner, see the little gear icon, click it and click the export option.
You should get a popup window.
If you just want the url to subscribe to it from another application, right click and ‘copy the link address’. Paste it in to your calendars subscribe url option.
Alternatively if you just click on it, your calendar application should open up and hanlde the subscription process for you.
Use it in the ical events plugin?
Bear in mind that the plugin caches the url’s, so you may need to force a refresh (add ?refresh) to the calendar page url and refresh the page in your browser.

Firstly, this plugin is absolute HEAVEN and it totally looks great. Thank you so much!
Tables are wonderful - they expand beautifully and naturally to fit your content, but sometimes that same content can make the table do weird things.
Please be sure to test your css in your theme with representative content.
Sometimes the only way to really sort a table width out is to “fix” the width of the table and/or the table cells. Now this the plugin has to leave this to you – some people have wide content areas, some not. Some have lots of info displayed, others have minimal.
The plugin has no way of knowing what size would work best for you.
I suggest that you use something like firebug to see what your theme is doing (or not doing!) and then google table+css+width for ideas on what might work with your theme. You know the size of content area that your calendar or agenda list must fit into and perhaps simply setting the width of the table and/or the table cells will be the answer.
