    Hi there,

    I have a question for you guys, maybe some knows the answer. I enabled WebDAV on my iMac in order to publish my calendars on the web. Everything works great, but to my surprise all calendars are read-only and I couldn't find any option that would let me edit my calendars from a client machine. Do you know if there is a way to enable the writing permission?

    Thanks in advance

    nevermind, it can't be done. Apparently the read-only option cannot be changed.

    Yeah i figured that the other day and was kind of disapointed. Mostly with the Birthdays calender that pulls from my Address Book. It is not a subscribed calender but it carries the same properties. It does not allow you to edit it. I just wanted to simply add alarms to those events. So I have a pop up to remind me of birthdays. AH well .... I hope it is something that will change.

    Yeah... two things need to happen. First, the site would need to run an iCal server that allows for read/write access. Second, iCal would have to be designed to write to server-mounted calendars. Leopard Server and Leopard will have these features, but you'd need a server that ran a read/write iCal server before you could take advantage of it.
