Introduction

It is important that your visitors can add your event data to their devices and applications. That's why DPCalendar allows to export the events as iCal feed. If it is required that your site users can manage the events, then they can do that through the CalDAV endpoint of DPCalendar in their preferred app's on smartphones, tablets or any other device.

The links to the calendars are displayed in the main calendar menu item, in the list of displayed calendars.

DPCalendar

Public iCal feed

The iCal feed can be compiled with an url like below where the id is the id of the DPCalendar to export. Google calendar ical export is also supported.

Webcal is a subscriber protocol for ics files. The webcal feed can be compiled with an url like below where the id is the id of the DPCalendar to export.

Private iCal feed

Every registered user on your site can generate a token in her/his profile editing page. When this token is set, then a private ical feed is available for the user. This allows them to subscribe to an iCal application unauthenticated as when they are logged in. This means that the access rules of the user do come into action. The url for the ical feed looks then like below:

https://{{joomla-site}}/index.php?option=com_dpcalendar&task=ical.download&id=8&token={{your-token}}

Private Webcal feed

Every register user on your site can generate a token in her/his profile editing page. When this token is set, then a private webcal feed is available for the user. This allows them to subscribe to a webcal application unauthenticated as when they are logged in. The url looks then like below.

webcal://{{joomla-site}}/index.php?option=com_dpcalendar&task=ical.download&id=8&token={{your-token}}

CalDAV

DPCalendar allows CalDAV access to it's calendars. This means you can manage your events from your preferred event organizer app like Outlook, Thunderbird or iCal from Apple. Nowadays smartphones come with CalDAV apps too.

More information can be found in the CalDAV server article.
