Hello,

If you read my reply above? it shows the changes you need to make.

Copy the one which is saying it should look like. That works as I just ran it perfectly.

Could be that your server doesn't allow you to read files from the /tmp folder.

Try uploading it to the server using FTP and then use the load from url option when creating the calendar.

I have the same problem, also with the example you gave above.

Is it also possible to import in an existing calendar?

You can import into an existing calendar as a once off in the frontend (but you must enable that feature in the import tab of the JEvebnts config).

Did you try importing the file from a URL (after you upload it via FTP)?

Hi, I have the same issue. I am a gold member and even tried importing the sample file I downloaded from the JEvents site without changing a thing - no go. I also tried importing the text displayed above, after copying to notebook & saving. No go. I am importing from the front end, through the Import iCal Events function, and every time I get "0 records imported" and nothing else. Cheers, Karen

Hi Karen

Can you try uploading the file to your server and then using the URL to import as a new calendar from URL. Some servers seem to have strange permission settings on uploaded files - they upload correctly but then the webserver can't read them.

In addition you might need to upload it to a remote server, as some servers do not allow local routing/loops I.e. calling its self via URL.
