New 2018/2019 Subscribable Unoffy Fixture Calendar - Second attempt!

OK, I mentioned some weeks ago that I was losing access to the SS Fixtures subscribable Calendar which I maintained so from this coming season and, I hope, henceforth there will be a new link for those wishing to subscribe - but as I'm no Google expert I'd like those who are interested to give it a try.

It works for me, but then I "own" the Calendar so I'd like to try it in the wild!

OK, Chaps and Chapesses, try this one please:

https://calendar.google.com/calendar?cid=b25uODVwdTk0MnNsbmN1b3F2bGZhMThwOHNAZ3JvdXAuY2FsZW5kYXIuZ29vZ2xlLmNvbQ

https: //calendar.google.com/calendar?cid=b25uODVwdTk0MnNsbmN1b3F2bGZhMThwOHNAZ3JvdXAuY2FsZW5kYXIuZ29vZ2xlLmNvbQ

Remember to delete the space between https: and // if copying and pasting the bottom version into your Calendar application of choice.


if you subscribe at the following link ...

https://calendar.google.com/calendar/ical/onn85pu942slncuoqvlfa18p8s%40group.calendar.google.com/private-e88886a0f23bf6683c22d0710f5008d0/basic.ics


With any, or perhaps more appropriately a great degree of, luck you should see the two fixtues yet announced, namely:

Friday, 10th August 2018:

5:45pm Sale FC v Sale Jets
7:45pm Sale Sharks v Doncaster Knights

Both should be showing (in blue, I hope)* and be stating that the games are at Heywood Road and are pre-season friendlies.

* The colour is apparently set by you when you add it to your Calendar of choice, not by the the source Calendar.

If you can, or even more importantly if you can not, see the Calendars downloaded to your own Calendar of choice, then please post below.

I would hope to include all Sale Sharks, Jets and Under'Y' games throughout the season so as and when I am happy that it does what I think it does I'll delete this temporary sticky and post a proper one.

The old Calendar should remain extant and accessible so you should not lose past fixtures and results.

Thanks in advance for your help and any suggestions, criticisms, wishes, etc. etc. will be welcome.

E&OE, Caveat emptor, etc. etc.

A Google expert tells me that there is a glitch in the URL and is going to help me to correct this tomorrow (Sunday) afternoon so I suspect that it won't work for you yet.

It would be nice of someone could try the link as it now stands and confirm that it doesn't work.

I'll post back when the glitch (if glitch there be) is resolved.

Watch this space.

It tells me that I do not have access. Something to do with the "private" in the URL, perhaps?

Thatís what I am led to believe.

Ben, The Plaza Deputy Technical Manager for he is the expert, is coming to round to see me tomorrow and has said heíll look at it whilst there. When I have removed the bug Iíll post on here and perchance you or someone else can try again and report back.

Apologies for my technical incompetence. (Sm59)

I got access, but the link downloaded a .ics file for me. Windows being windows, automatically assumed I wanted either Ouutlook or the windows calendar app to use this .ics file, not my google calendar, even though I performed all operations via Chrome. I await tomorrows bug fix.

Excellent news, Bravo, Ben! (Sm152)

As and when the fixtures are announced (early July?) I'll populate it unless anyone finds that it doesn't work for them. When I do, i'll unstickificaterise this thread and post a basic one with only the necessary information in it.

if it doesn't work for you, please post your OS, Calendar of choice etc. and I'll seek further advice from Ben.

Note that the above URL does not work if you try to subscribe to it in Calendar (macos).

This one does work: https://calendar.google.com/calendar/ical/onn85pu942slncuoqvlfa18p8s%40group.calendar.google.com/public/basic.ics

That may or may not be a subscription to the instance of iBozz's link in my Google calendar. It may point to the original.

I got there by following the link above and adding to my Google calendar. If you then go to the settings for that calendar (i.e. as it appears in your own Google calendar page), In the section "Integrate calendar", you want the one that says "Public address in iCal format".

Thanks, I shall refer your comment to Ben when I get chance and see if he can iron out this bug as well. Come to think lf it, I have the *.ics link in my macOS Calendar, we tested the other link in Benís Google Calendar.

Isnít it amazing how quickly one forgets testing methods when youíve been retired for over ten years! Once upon a time this would have been meat and drink to me.



* Edited to make more sense after I have just re-read this post. I have never managed to get the hang of typing quickly and accurately on an iPad but the number of typos was somewhat embarrassing - I'm surprised the pedants didn't jump on it! Apologies most perfunct.

So far only two have said that it does, or does not, work for them - thanks Mjor and Poynters (the latter by PM).

I know that more subscribed to the old calendar, which will not be updated for the future but will remain accessible for past results and fixtures, so maybe others have tried and succeeded.

It would help me if you could PM me with your Operating System and version and which link(s) worked for you so that I can ensure that any "final" sticky will work for the maximum number of people.

The Iffy do, or did under Swanny, have a similar calendar to which one can subscribe but it only covered SS games, not Jets or UnderY games and, as it was actually maintained by a third party it was very slow to update.

I hope that my version will be comprehensive and as up to date as I can make it when I see changes - or after someone helps me by pointing changes out to me.

For Completeness, I subscribed via Windows 10 on PC. Calendar also works on my Android device.
