Problem adding Public Calendars.

Post by Gogo » Fri Mar 29, 2013 12:00 pm

VueMinder Lite - v10.1.7

"File"/"Add Public Calendars and Holidays" =

I successfully added "Holidays incl. OPM Holidays", but the others I selected - 5 Sports Calendars, have not appeared.

Closed/exited VueMinder and reopened it.

On left of my Calendar, I see "My Calendars" and under that I see my main Calendar and the 6 Calendars I just added all checked.

How do I get them to appear in my Calendar?

Further info - I see what the problem is - they have appeared - but they are all 2012 Calendars.

Perhaps your links need to be updated?

Specifically, I've added:

Formula 1
Indy Car
Nascar Sprint Cup
Nascar Nationwide
Nascar Camping World Trucks

I notice now that both F1 and Indy Car are labeled "2012".

Hi Gogo, the calendars you mention are for the 2012 season. It doesn't appear the 2013 calendars are available yet, at least not from http://www.mysportscal.com/ which is where VueMinder gets the calendars.

There is another source for the Formula 1 calendar. On the "Add Public Calendars" window, expand "More Calendars..." and select "WebCal.fi". On the right-side, click "Calendars" and then click the "Sports" tab. There's an F1 calendar for 2013 that can be added. Unfortunately, they don't have calendars for Nascar or Indy Car.

I've also found another source for Nascar and Indy Car schedules (as well as many other sports, including the 2013 MLB schedule).

1. In your web browser, go to http://sportycal.com/main/index.
2. Click "Motor Sport" or whatever sport you'd like.
3. Drill down to the calendar you want and then click the "Link" button on that calendar's page.
4. A window will popup with a link. Select the link and copy it.
5. In VueMinder, click the "Add Calendar Subscription" command on the File menu.
6. Paste (Ctrl+V) the copied link into the subscription location.
7. Click OK. The calendar will download within a few seconds.
