Calendar Subscription Problem

When Google users subscribe to a calendar by clicking the save/download icon, instead of seeing the calendar name such as "Elementary School" they see "http://events.time.ly/jvltydh/export?format=ics&no_html=true&categories=301", so the user will have no idea what calendar this is aside from the color at least for Google calendars, not sure about other calendar clients.

    Seems like all it would take is to add

    X-WR-CALNAME;VALUE=TEXT: $calendar_name

     

    in the VCALENDAR section of the .ics file.

    Hm, the ics library used seems to have support for it, but hidden behind an argument:

    if( true === $arguments['do_not_export_as_calendar'] ) {
    $c->setProperty( 'X-WR-CALNAME', get_bloginfo( 'name' ) );
    $c->setProperty( 'X-WR-CALDESC', get_bloginfo( 'description' ) );
    }
