    I have 5 websites that are related, but different.
    I would like to have one calendar with 5 different categories and then place a calendar linked to one category on each site.
    This way I can have one administrator enter events for all the sites, instead of having to log in to each site to update each site’s events.

    Can WPEO do this?

    Hi Walter,

    Yes: I’m about to launch the add-on iCal Sync. This allows your site to subscribe to an iCal feed and automatically import, and update, the events. So you could have each of your 5 sites subscribe to the main site’s feed (Event Organiser generates an iCal feed for all your events, and feeds for each category and venue).

    In that way your 5 sites would automatically import the events form the main site.

    The caveat here is that iCal feeds do not contain details (apart from the venue name) pertaining to venues – nor various custom fields you may wish to use with events. In these instances you would need to manually enter venue and custom field details.


    Side note: in core there is tenative support for Three WP – which may be more suitable for you. Please see: https://github.com/stephenharris/Event-Organiser/blob/master/includes/event-organiser-cpt.php#L951. I say ‘tentative’ because although I know of atleast one person using it, its not been thoroughly tested as provided with ‘ use at your own risk’ health warning.

To create not a block, but an inline code span, use backticks:

Here is some inline `code`.
