Duplicate event after update
Hello. I use the iCal import method for a google calendar and have localendar embedded on my website. When I create events on Google Calendar and then look on my website, it looks good. However, sometimes, when I edit an event after I create it, it makes a duplicate event on the localendar side, as it does not exist on the google side, and I cannot get rid of it, and I've received "complaints" about it, so any help would be appreciated!

Re: Duplicate event after update
fyi - we're looking into this...

Here's the current suspicion.. Unlike most calendar providers (incl Google) when you have an iCal import, we refresh it every time the calendar is viewed, so that updates are instantly reflected (Google for example, waits up to several hours, which is kind of annoying)

However, what this means is that if your iCal feed has a bunch of events, and a bunch of people view the calendar, we may be fetching that iCal feed several times (when it should only be 1 time)

Again.. this technically shouldn't be happening, but it explains the behavior you describe. I'll let you know when I have more info.
