Events RSS Feed - Parameters for Additional Data?

Events RSS Feed - Parameters for Additional Data?

Not a direct API question but still related as I'm consuming an RSS feed of events.

 

Current URL given by the "promotion tools" link:

 

http://eventsfeed.constantcontact.com/calendar/rss?location=true&eso=001MKRsfN-93vqxYA_zQ4WnzQ==

 

The RSS feed only includes:

- Name

- Description

- Link

- Event Date

 

But the JS "Events Widget" also has the option for Location - but the RSS doesn't?

 

So, are there any parameters for the RSS feed URL to get more event information - or would I have to go through the API ?

 

 

Cheers,

Re: Events RSS Feed - Parameters for Additional Data?

Hello,

 

Currently at this time there is no way to add anything additional to the RSS event feed.  What you are looking for though is definitely possible with using our API's.

 

You could pull out all of your current events with our Event API collection, and then you would have access to all of the information that the event has, which includes the location.

 

If you are interested in doing this, please take a look at our documentation, and if you have any questions please let me know.

 Thank you for the reply - I'll go with consiming the API :) Bit more work but there's much more data to use.
