Hi, I have just installed v0.2 of the above module and I notice it gives me the option of getting event information dynamically from a feed. I tried connecting it to the demo RSS feed to see if that would work, but it doesn't seem to display any entries. Am I missing something silly? I am using version 2.4.5 of SS.

Any help you could give me would be brilliant.

Many thanks.

It's for ICS feeds, not RSS.

Thank you very much! My brain just didn't engage on that. I have generated a "dummy" ICS file and it is working perfectly!

I'm so glad I have the chance to speak to the developer sometimes. :-)

So we have got our new site live at last and we are currently bringing in our meetings from a static page, but we would like to bring them in from a dynamic page. We have an .ASPX page that returns a plain text ICS output, but when I point the module at that file it doesn't return any meetings. I have tried getting IIS to treat *.ics files as *.aspx files (as in the aspx code sits in a file with the ics extension), but that hasn't worked either.

Any ideas?
