ICS Calendar Help
ICS Calendar Pro includes a set of tools for the WordPress Customizer (Appearance > Customize > ICS Calendar Pro in the WP admin) that let you change the colors of your calendar to either one of our preset color palettes or to any colors you choose, along with tools to change your font, text size, and various other layout details.
Beyond these settings in Pro, both versions allow you to customize your appearance using CSS. We have made a concerted effort to use a consistent set of CSS classes throughout the ICS Calendar templates, allowing users with a general understanding of CSS coding to modify the calendar appearance extensively.
We are still preparing full documentation of these style classes, but in the meantime, we recommend using the “inspector” in your browser’s developer tools to learn the details of the CSS classes. Your CSS overrides can be placed directly into your theme’s CSS files or entered in the Customizer (Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS).
As a head start, please note that the entire ICS Calendar output is wrapped inside a
<section> tag with the
.ics-calendar class. Inside that container, each view has a class that is used to wrap the iterations of its output, e.g. the month view puts each individual month into an
<article> tag with the
.ics-calendar-month-wrapper class. The wrapper for list view uses
.ics-calendar-list-wrapper and so on.
If your calendars are displaying outdated information, or if you’ve recently added new events to your source calendar that aren’t displaying on the site, you may need to clear the calendar data cache.
Both the free and Pro versions have a utility to clear the calendar cache. Just click a button and the caches will clear, forcing any calendars on your site to immediately reload fresh calendar data.
In the free version, click ICS Calendar in the admin sidebar. In the Pro version, navigate to ICS Calendar > Settings & Tools > Admin. Then click the Clear Cached Calendar Data button.
