hCalendar Examples in the wild

This section is informative.

The following sites have implemented hCalendar, and thus are a great place to start for anyone looking for examples "in the wild" to try parsing, indexing, organizing etc. If events on your pages are marked up with hCalendar, feel free to add it to the top of this list. Once the list grows too big, we'll make a separate wiki page.

New Examples

Please add new examples to this section.

Mon May 22, 4:00 PM ET The World Cup, one of the world's most watched sporting events, is almost upon us. If you've ever tried to follow your favorite team through the Cup you know that it can sometimes be difficult to know when they're on. World Cup Kickoff can help.

World Cup KickOff is all you will ever need for knowing all the match details for the upcoming World Cup 2006. Whether you use your mobile phone, MS Outlook, Apple iCal or Mozilla Calendar, you can download and keep all the fixtures you are interested in so you will never miss a single game! ADVERTISEMENT

Next tip? We'll show you how to get up at 2 AM to watch your matches. ;0) Thanks to Tom for the tip!

Examples with some problems

  • Theatre Studies: European Theatre at the University of Edinburgh uses hCalendar to markup news and events on the index page.
    • Uses "display:none" on image. Andy Mabbett 15:32, 13 Nov 2006 (PST)
  • s'Bokle is a German music pub. Their events calendar has been marked up with hCalendar.
    • improper use of rrule --RyanKing 16:04, 6 Jan 2006 (PST)
  • Plan9 - Uses hCalendar to mark up events !
    • dtstart/dtend are implemented on span element Tom Armitage June 23, 2006
  • socalTECH is a news and information site. Their front page event listing is marked up with hCalendar.
    • dtstart/dtend implemented on span element Tom Armitage June 23, 2006
  • The Multipack features a vevent for the next meeting information.
    • dtstart/dtend are implemented on em element Tom Armitage June 23, 2006
  • Paul Schreiber's unofficial schedule site publishes hCalendar information for upcoming hockey games at Ice Oasis
    • dtstart/dtend are implemented on td element Tom Armitage June 23, 2006

- whilst Tails parses dtstart/dtend on any element, technically it really needs to be on abbr. Technorati Microformats Search only looks for the title element on <abbr> tags, for instance.
