iCal feed of calendar not working
I already asked a question on this issue here on stackexchange, but I got no response. Now that I also have the information that this is an issue of CiviCRM I open an issue.
For more background info you can check the question I asked on Stackexchange. Now I'll only mention what's relevant at the moment.
The problem is that my ical feed ( https://example.tld/civicrm?page=CiviCRM&q=civicrm%2Fevent%2Fical&reset=1 ) was not working on both Fastmail and Google calendar when I tried to import it. I asked Fastmail what was the issue with the feed and they responded:
The problem is that your ics file begins with a UTF-8 Byte order mark or BOM — https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Byte_order_mark
Our server did not know what to do with this, but we've fixed it and now you should be all set.
I don't think it's typical to provide these in ics files, but we should have been able to handle it just the same.
They fixed this, which was very nice of them, but the feed still doesn't work in Google Calendar of course and I want the ical feed to be universally usable.
So now that we've got a clear idea what the problem is. How could I fix it? Or is this a bug in CiviCRM?
All the best,
