One thought on “Tech / WP

  1. i’m surprised you’re not using the ical events plugin. i landed on your site hoping i’d find out what you meant when you said ‘Have managed to use options and tweak display to get a format I like’ over at dwc’s.
    I guess you just gave up on the ical events plugin altogether.

    Or have you?

    I’m really curious as to how you managed to tweak it.

    thx
