Version 9.1.0 is out and it includes three new shortcode attributes!
Individual event .ics downloads
This is been a frequently requested feature, and now it’s here! Add
eventdl="true" to your shortcode to add a clickable download link to each event. This will download a customized
.ics file containing only the selected event for users to add the event to their personal calendars. Note: This is still a “beta” feature. Your feedback is welcomed!
Another common request I receive involves changing the default color handling. Specifically, sites that use a dark background color sometimes run into issues with the default black text of ICS Calendar’s output. Now you can include
whitetext="true" in your shortcode to force all text within the calendar to be white.
When using the
whitetext option, color-coded feeds get handled differently as well: instead of the default light tinted background behind event text, the entire block for each event is display in the solid color specified by the
color attribute. But what if you want it to display that way without using
whitetext? Now you can do that as well, thanks to the
solidcolors option. Include
solidcolors="true" in your shortcode to make events in color-coded feeds use the designated color as a solid background behind the text, instead of the default lighter “tint” of the designated color.
As always, feedback and feature suggestions are welcomed in the WordPress support forums.
