Wherever possible, ICS Calendar does things “the WordPress way,” including relying on your general site settings for certain properties of the calendar.
Before working with ICS Calendar, be sure to navigate to Settings > General in your WordPress admin and check the following settings:
Site Language: This will use built-in WordPress functions to correctly display day and month names in the proper language, and will also cause ICS Calendar’s custom text to use translation strings for your language, if available. (Actual calendar event details are not translated, and will always display in the language used in your source calendar.)
Timezone: Be sure you are using a named city timezone for the city nearest to you geographically, in your timezone. Avoid using UTC offset timezones as they may not calculate times around the start and end of Daylight Saving Time correctly, among other inconsistent behaviors. You can override the site’s default timezone within individual ICS Calendar shortcodes using the
Date Format: by default ICS Calendar will display dates based on this setting. You can override the site’s default date format within individual ICS Calendar shortcodes using the
Time Format: All event times displayed by ICS Calendar will adhere to the format entered here, with a few exceptions. (For example, timezone abbreviations like “CDT” are problematic for our formatting functions, and will be omitted from display if you set a custom value that uses “e”, “T” or “Z”.)
Week Starts On: Month and week view (and similar tabular views in ICS Calendar Pro) will always display weeks in rows based on this value.
