Link Updating for an RSS feed

Post by opalescent »

I am currently trying to sync an RSS feed to my Google Calendar. The annoying thing is, Google Calendar wants to give me all my OLD OLD OLD events in addition to my new ones! The solution for that is to add something to the end of the link to the RSS feed as so:

http://www.googlecalendarlinkblahblahblah.com/basic&orderby=starttime&sortorder=ascending&start-min=(INSERT TODAYS DATE HERE IN YYYY-MM-DD FORMAT)

The problem is I can't figure out exactly how to do that, in other words, to get the URL in the plugin measure to adjust according to the date. I tried using this:

Code: Select all

[MeasureTime]
measure=time
Format="%Y-%m-%d"
But i don't know what to do when it comes to getting that time into this:

Code: Select all

[Feed]
Measure=Plugin
Plugin=Plugins\WebParser.dll
Url=www.googlecalendarlinkblahblahblah.com/basic&orderby=starttime&sortorder=ascending&start-min=(I WANT IT HERE HOW DO I DO THAT!)
RegExp=BLAHBLAHBLAHBLAHBLAH
UpdateRate=600
Blahblahblahtherestofthecodeblahblahblah
Help?
