    Default Public Calender viewing

    Hello, I am interested in deploying the open source version of Zimbra for the professors at my university on our Linux server. One of the features I would like to have is to allow the professors to have their calenders be viewable from a public web page. Does Zimbra already have this feature or is it something we would have to implement?

    Yup, the URL follows the syntax of the following:
    http://servername/zimbra/home/username/calendarname.ics

    However, you will need authintication to get to that calendar (and admin UN will work)

    I use PHP iCalendar 0.9.5, it's very very useful for displaying zimrba calendars on a webpage.


    Good luck!

    PS-If you want to see it in action, go to http://tombstone.k12.az.us/ and click on TUSD #1 Calendars

    Yeah, I need it to not have to authenticated. The reason is the professors need to allow the students to view the class calender simply by following a link. Right now we're using mastercal which SUCKS and is the cause of many a headaches.

    Oops, sorry I posted before I followed your link. Actually I think that might work well.

    Yea,

    The end user doesn't need to have the authintication, but when the webserver pulls the account calendar from the calendar owner in Zimbra, the server will need a username and password.

    There are many automated programs that you can set to pull the cal down, and have it remember the password.

    eh ! this feature could be cool ... if it worked on my zimbra server

    I try this : http://myzimbraserverhost/zimbra/hom...lendarname.ics

    (it gives me : http://foo/zimbra/home/bar/Calendar.ics)

    An outook appointment window opens with only the first item.

    How to get a html page like wannabetenor's ?

    Edit : oups. I read too fast. I'll spend time on php iCalendar

    Default Zimbra/phpiCalendar

    I am using a wget cron job to grab the calendars from Zimbra. Not ideal, but it works. I just have the cron run every 30 minutes to update the calendar ics files in the phpicalendar/calendars directory.

    I wish the web_cals function would authenticate from phpiCalendar to Zimbra, but I could not make it work.

    • Create a Calendar
    • Right click on it
    • Click on "Share Calendar"
    • Click on "Public (view only, no password required)"
    • Click on "Ok"


    Now you don't need to authenticate.

    Edit (Added below):
    For evolution I need no authentication.
    However, for using wget to download the calendar, I need to authenticate despite the calendar being publicly shared.
