Description

I have a calendar feed of events, located at: webcal://openlab.citytech.cuny.edu/cstcolloquium/calendar/list/?ical=1.

I have a group on the commons with no events: http://commons.gc.cuny.edu/groups/cstcolloquium/events/upcoming.

Is it possible to one-way synchronize the group events on the commons with this feed? For example, if I add an event to my feed, it should show up as a commons calendar event. If remove an event from the feed, it should be removed from the commons calendar. If I add or remove an event from the commons calendar, it should not affect the feed (though, that will vacuously happen since the feed is read-only).

It appears that this is possible with an existing add-on from Event Organiser: http://wp-event-organiser.com/extensions/event-organiser-ical-sync/

We'd have to build a wrapper that puts the interface into (I guess) the group Manage panels. Ray, do you have thoughts about this?

Matt, given our heavy reliance on EO (and our good relationship with its author), I think we should consider getting the annual Developer license: http://wp-event-organiser.com/pricing/ Is this doable?

#2 Updated by Raymond Hoh over 3 years ago

We have an existing ticket for this (#4423). Boone's comments are similar to my own that I left on the other ticket.

Since this issue has some updated feedback regarding purchasing, I'm tempted to close the older ticket.

Yes, absolutely -- we'll do this this week

Derp, I thought this issue sounded familiar. Thanks, Ray.

Ray, you should have received the license key via email. Let me know if you didn't!

#9 Updated by Raymond Hoh about 2 years ago

It might be nice to do this for 1.11.

However, it seems like I have misplaced the extension on my computer.

Boone or Matt, can someone provide me with a copy of the Event Organiser iCal Sync plugin?

#10 Updated by Boone Gorges about 2 years ago

I don't seem to have it either. Matt forwarded me a license-update nudge email from Event Organiser back on Jan 29, but I'm not sure the license ever got renewed. I turned up the original email with links to download the zip files, but the links are now defunct. We may have to log into the site to download - Matt, do you have the credentials?

#11 Updated by Matt Gold about 2 years ago

Forwarded via email. Please let me know whether you have any problems logging in

#12 Updated by Boone Gorges about 2 years ago

Thanks, Matt. I wasn't able to log into https://wp-event-organiser.com/wp/wp-login.php with these credentials. Could you try? (Maybe I'm looking at the wrong site?) You'll need to initiate a password reset if it doesn't work.

#13 Updated by Matt Gold about 2 years ago

sorry for the delay on this. I just reset the password and will email it to you with a reference to this ticket number

#14 Updated by Boone Gorges about 2 years ago

The credentials worked to get me into the site, but when I try to download any items, I get a "You are not allowed to download" error message. Matt, are you seeing the same thing?

I assume this is because the account is suspended? I see the purchase date is Feb 26, 2016 - more than a year ago.

#15 Updated by Matt Gold about 2 years ago

Yeah, it looks like our account was not renewed. I put in a purchase request with the business office to have it renewed, but it might have gotten tied up in a legal review. I am checking on that but won't have an answer until tomorrow.
