NOTE: the ical spec is complex – almost all has been implemented – i’d wager more than most plugins! Please check the list against the events you wish to create. Sometimes there is another way to specify the same recurring event.
- See screenshots at wordpress,
- See the showcase
- Language Examples at the language test site.
- Shortcode Usage
- Widget Info
- can combine multiple calendars (for example: include public holidays or moon phases along with your calendar);
- offer your viewers the possibility of automatically adding events with it’s detail straight into their google calendar, or even the whole calendar into their calendar application;
- offers the ability to group your events for readability and style. Grouping can be done by a variety of methods, such as daily, weekly, monthly, yearly or by seasons!
- works ‘out the box’ with an option to do own styling via a combination of list types to control content and lots of css tags to control styling;
- a number of preset styling options offered to give you an idea of what is possible;
- specify your own locale specific date and time styling
- handles timezones, daylight saving with options to redisplay in original calendar timezone.
- can list not only events, but also the other ical components like todo tasks, freebusy, journal (notes)
- allows for internationalisation, however translation files still required – any volunteers?
- W3C validated Css and the html
- cache’s the files for improved performance. Refresh option for testing.
- handles nearly recurrence rules (more than others I’d bet!)
The widget now has all the functionality of the shortcode above
- Title: The usual widget title option
- Calendar URL – If you have a calendar page, specifiy it here. This can be used as a default link destination for those events that do not have a URL. A link is generated on the event summary text. the event description is shown as the title text, and the URL is the destnation (or the calendar page)
- Urls – separate multiple urls with a comma spaces. Add shortcode parameters as per above.
The test site: test.icalevents.com lets you try out some of the possibilities with your calendars on this site or the language test site.
(you can create more or customise these)
- listtype=1 (default)
- listtype=2 (suits venue based events like shows)
- listtype=3 (timetable)
- listtype=4 (widget)
- listtype=5 (lots of groupings)
- listtype=6 (for test purposes only, has all the groupings)
Note: The List type format is entirely configurable via the settings page on your web. types 1 to 6 are examples to show you what is possible.
