Double postings on Web Calendar page
Hi, I did a iCal merge from my church calendar on Planning Center Online. It brought over the events from PCO to my Localendar just fine.

But, when I checked the calendar on my church website, I found all the imported events had posted twice. This is odd since it looked OK on my localendar.com account.

I killed the merge until I can find an answer.

I did a forum search, and found someone had the same issue a few years ago. I couldn't find where the solution had been posted, though.

For the church website, we use wordpress with the localendar plug-in in order to get the calendar to it's page.

Am I missing a setting somewhere?

Re: Double postings on Web Calendar page
Nothing on your side: I think this is us...

Short story .. we don't cache our ics imports (like Google does - a source of pain for many users). Every time you refresh your calendar, we dynamically pull in any feeds.

However, if the feed takes more than a second to process and someone else refreshes the calendar during that period, that may also cause a duplicate of the feed to be pulled and merged in at the same time.

To properly address this, we're going to have to add some small cache (maybe a minute or two) which is on our roadmap. Still better than the hours Google sometimes waits.

Thanks Marc, I'll revisit this at a later date. Once it's resolved, I'm looking forward to adding out Planning center iCal to our web calendar.

Again, thanks to you and the team.
