I have a JEvents calendar on Site A that I wish to automatically update a JEvents calendar on Site B

I understand that I must create the Site B target calendar using an iCal URL but I cannot find the location of that iCal URL on the Site A source.

I am using the current free version of JEvents. Do I need to upgrade, and if so, to which package?

Create an iCal export menu item on site A and use the url that generates for the import into site B

Thanks. That did import the calendar from A to B successfully.

Is there a way I can make that dynamic - so that changes made in Source A are reflected in Target B? Is there an RSS feed that I can use to populate Site B?

Setup a crontab job - there are club member articles describing the process http://www.jevents.net/jevents-15-topme ... -calendars and http://www.jevents.net/jevents-15-topme ... -explation

The links are for Club Members only - I joined and have logged back in but I still can't see them.

Go to the frontend of JEvents.net and logout there and login again from the Joomla part of the site - does it work now?

Yup got it. Thanks.

Still having some difficulties with this. Before using the auto-refresh I'm just using the manual refresh on Site B target having made an event addition on source Site A. The manual refresh doesn't work - the new date doesn't appear. I'm pretty sure I'm making a config mistake error somewhere ...

Check the site B cache settings.

Also when you do the manual import does it tell you now many events it imported?

Only cache I can see is Use Joomla Cache which is set to no.

As it imports the iCal data a screen flashes up showing the date entries. I can see the added date in the list so I know it's being retreived. It's just not displaying. The category is the same as other dates that are being displayed. I'll try again with an additional date.
