After setting up the link it is essential that you edit your post to update share attachment . I cannot code for a share attachment for bcra.org...

Using Google Calendar for your Caving Club diary

BCRA has started using Google Calendar for listing our events. Our motivation for doing this, rather than relying on the BCA diary was that Google Calendar is easier for "lay people" to update, and it can be widely circulated, and used in an iframe. You can see it on BCRA's website at http://bcra.or...

It is also possible to use cPanel's MultiPHP manager to do this which, when its settings are "applied", simply adds an "Addhandler" line (and a comment) to...
