How to fix the error "Please enter a valid iCal address" when subscribing to a calendar
This article explains how to correctly format an iCal address so it can be subscribed to in Yahoo Calendar, without the following error occurring: "Please enter a valid iCal address."
This is caused when an iCal address begins with the wrong format, such as "webcals://", etc.
The error "Please enter a valid iCal address" will occur if the iCal address to which you are trying to subscribe does not begin with "http://". In order to correct this error, you will need to adjust the iCal address you are subscribing to using the steps below
- Copy the iCal address to a blank text file.
- Remove "webcals://" from the beginning of the URL.
- Add "http://" in the location where information was removed during step two.
- Copy the new address to use when using the subscribe feature in Yahoo Calendar. (Click here for more information about subscribing to calendars.)
Note: The above iCal address example is not a real calendar, and you will not be able to subscribe to this calendar.
