I thought there was a downloadable events calendar available in the new visual look on the website. I downloaded the Google Calendar version of it — but it seems to have disappeared (from both my calendars and any link that I can find on the website).
Hi Brian! Thanks for informing me the events calendar does NOT have an export feature. I have started to test a different one with the ability to download as ICS or iCal but not looking forward to migrating the old calendar.
But the feature was there (at least for a short time) — and went away. I am not sure what all the possible download options were but Google Calendar was certainly one of them (there were a couple of others as well). The Google Calendar one seem to work correctly – it moved all the listed events to my calendar.
What you are saying is that you removed it until you can get a in iCal download option?
I have dug a little further. The option to export is available off the calendar that is viewable off every page (bottom right). When you view the calendar from https://pcaucr.org/calendar/ it isn’t possible.
The beauty of external Google calendars is that you don’t really download them — just a link to a calendar so if the linked location changes your calendar does to (so new dates, times, events get passed along). I have a number of external calendars that I use(and have created a few – including a very detailed minute by minute one for UCR DE weekends).
I am not sure if the calendar that comes out of the WordPress link will update if you change things in the calendar that you have created.
So all is good — the problem I was having turns out to be operator (read my stupidity) problem – nothing do with the website or calendar download. I didn’t select the sync calendar option on my phone (and because I have a few calendars this one was not appearing on the immediate list of calendars so I thought it had disappeared).
Sorry for the confusion. Everything seems to be operating the way it should.
