Appendix A - Subscribing to iCalendar and RSS Feeds

The events plugin allows you to subscribe to the iCalendar feed of a whole forum (i.e. all the events across the forum), or the iCalendar feed of events in a category.

Steps

  1. Go to community.com/calendar (sitewide) or community.com/c/category/l/calendar (category)
  2. Click the “Subscribe” button on the top right.
  3. Click the iCalendar or RSS feed urls to copy them.
  4. Use the URL in any iCalendar or RSS client.

Private Calendars

If the calendar is private (because the site or category is private), you need an Webcal API key to subscribe to your forum’s iCalendar feed.

  1. To generate the key go to my/preferences/webcal-keys.
  2. Click on Generate. Make a note of the client id and an api key generated.
  3. Add the following to the end of the iCalendar URL:
    &user_api_key=yourapikey&client_id=yourclientid
