Import vis iCalendar – no event location

  • Posts: 1 Topics: 4

    Hello,

    when I import my events via the iCaldendar function I get all the correct data for the date and the title of the event. But I don’t get the event location to be saved in the event. The iCalendar-file does have the location in it. When I import it into my desktop calendar it gets displayed. Also when I export an .ics-file from the iCalendar link and import that into my WordPress it has the locations.

    Is there any way to get the locations via the iCalendar import?

    Thanks and cheers,
    Arne

    Hello Arne,

    Thanks for using our plugins and welcome to the forums!

    I’m sorry about this issue you are having with the iCalendar import.

    Could you share with me the feed / URL that you are importing? I would like to run some tests with it.

    Thanks and cheers,
    Andras

    Hello András,

    here are some links to the files I’m iporting:

    http://88.198.120.153/cal-db/export/ical?cal=2
    http://88.198.120.153/cal-db/export/ical?cal=3
    http://88.198.120.153/cal-db/export/ical?cal=4

    http://88.198.120.153/cal-db/export/ical?cal=5

    The last one is the one I’m testing and that causes these problems. I uploaded the file here as well.

    Thanks and regards,
    Arne
