You now have more options in how you manage events on your website. You can
use the built-in calendar element tools to create events, or you could
choose to use an external calendar software (like Google Calendar, .Mac, Zvents, 30 boxes
... etc.) to manage your events and then have your calendar display
those events on your website. You could also subscribe to any public
iCalendars and bring those events onto your website instantly.
you would like more advanced recurring events on your website, this is
the option to go with. Many people might be using Google calendars or
other iCal based calendars already so this makes the transition very
easy and convenient.
- Login to your website.
- Go the the page where your calendar is.
- Click on Settings from the calendar element dropdown list.
- Click on the ADVANCED tab.
see a section for "Calendar Subscription" and a field to enter your
external iCal feed URL (your external software like Google Calendar
will provide you with the iCal URL)
- Paste your iCal feed URL into that field.
- Click the Update button.
other nice feature is that once you've subscribed, you canoverride the
title and description of the events by editing them within your
calendar. Just edit an event like normaland you can add web-only
content to an event for display purposes. Theevent still stays
connected to your iCal source. Keep in mind that ifyou ever unsubscribe
from the iCal source, all events related to theiCal source, even
content added through your website, will bedeleted
