    Is there any way to make the import of venues from an iCal feed a little more flexible, e.g. using a regular expression? If one character is off the import creates a new venue… Thanks!

    Hi Edward,

    This is kind of possible. You can filter the venue array of any imported venues, and change their name so they match the appropriate existing venue:

    add_filter( 'eventorganiser_ical_import_venue', function($venue, $event, $event_id, $ical){
        //change $venue['name'] so that it matches the name of an existing venue
        return $venue;
    }, 10, 4);

    Thanks, Stephen.

    Dumb question — what do I do with this snippet? 🙂

    You can put it in theme’s functions.php, or preferably a custom plugin:
