1. I created an external calendar by adding the ical link from a google calendar. It works fine, but the events that are repeated in the google calendar show up twice in Chamilo. (see screenshot)
2. clicking on an event displays the description of the first event in the calendar instead of the one of the selected day.

I think I mentionned this at the previous Dev-meeting: iCal is either best implemented (almost) completely or not at all. It will automatically lead to seemingly incorrect results if not completely implemented. In the case of your example my best guess would be that the original event was created on a Thursday but configured to repeat on a Tuesday. Since the import can only read the "weekly" property it will repeat the even weekly ... but on the originally used weekday, not the one you configured. There is no easy way to prevent this.Two possible solutions:
- Extend our internal calendar event content object
- Add multiple "simple" calendar events for one repeating iCal event
I'm not that big a fan of either solution, but the first one is just a little better then the second as far as data consistency goes. (as well as export possibilities)
The probem should not occur with exports since all currently supported repeating options for calendar events are extensively covered by the iCal format.
