Hi Emily,

Which specific extension are you currently using for your calendar? Also, what Joomla version are you using?

Looking forward to helping.

Kind regards,
Nick

Hi Nick,

I'm using google calendar but I'm using the "embedding method" you've provided before, so I'm not using any calendar extension - unless you have any recommendations?

I'm running on the most current Joomla 3.

Thanks.

Hi Emily,

Thanks for clarifying!

Google Calendar automatically creates a feed for you.

In www.ostraining.com/blog/joomla/google-calendar/ , right after clicking "Calendar Settings", you'll see "Calendar Address" directly below "Embed This Calendar". Right click the xml icon and copy the address.

That's the URL to the RSS feed.

Kind regards,
Nick

Hi Nick,

Is there a way we can provide a .ics link through Joomla (extensions?) so the user can export events from our Google Calendar to their own calendar?

Thanks.

Hi Emily,

You can export/import events from Google calendar. Here are the details: support.google.com/calendar/answer/37111?hl=en

Hopes this helps

Yes, I saw that too. But I was wondering if there is any extension or ways that we can build that function on a Joomla page. therefore people can click on an icon to export, or download .ics file? Thanks.

I'm not aware of a Joomla extension that can achieve that feature, however since the content is hosted in Google calendar, I'm afraid using their documentation is the safest solution.

Hi Valentin,

On a different note, I got many people said they can't see the Google calendar been embed through iFrame on our joomla page: district279.org/student-families/resources/calendars

Can you see it on the right side? I wonder why people can't see it when I can view it just fine in all 3 major browsers (IE, chrome, Firefox).

Please let me know if you have trouble view it or not, thanks.
Emily
