i have events divided into categories on my calendar.

another website wants to feature only one category on their site. how do i find out what the RSS feed is for each category on my calendar?

Hello,

RSS Is generated by Joomla!

You could try viewing just one category and coping the RSS Feed produced.

I thought this might be the case.

I would suggest creating a Latest Events Module, configuring it and selecting the category restriction.

Make sure, Show RSS Feed is enabled for you to copy it.

Many thanks
Tony

What is the url shown?

What version of Joomla! are you using?

Joomla 2.5

If i am on main calendar page: /calendar/month.calendar/2013/02/12/-

and view the HTML source, the only RSS feeds link are:
/index.php?option=com_jevents&task=modlatest.rss&format=feed&type=rss&Itemid=1323&modid=124

/index.php?option=com_jevents&task=modlatest.rss&format=feed&type=atom&Itemid=1323&modid=124

If I click on a category to filter the calendar, and view the HTML source, those two URLs are still the only ones that show up.
