Support Calendar Name in exported iCal / ics files (so that the name is preserved when calendar imported in Google or Mac)

Current plugin does not define a calendar name in the VCalendar, so when calendar are imported in google or other clients the default name is the URL itself.

Would be good to add the following directly to the VCalendar:
X-WR-CALNAME

I tweaked the code in iCalcreator.class.php to do so, but would be good if this is introduced in the plugin itself, so that it’s not lost with every update.

    Hi,

     

    thanks for raising the idea, it would be good if this option is added.

     

    It's a-bit annoying if the name of the calendar is the whole link, that's ugly!

    I had addressed this issue in a wordpress support thread, they directed me here.

     

    My suggestion was the following:

    If there are compatibility issues for other users, then, there should be an option in the plugin settings, in the ‘subscribe to filtered calendar’ drop-down menu or even additional option in the webcal link webcal://mydoamin.com/?plugin=all-in-one-event-calendar&controller=ai1ec_exporter_controller&action=export_events&no_html=true&ai1ec_cat_ids=82

     

    Hope this helps.

     

    Thanks,
