As today, any Subscribed Calendar is added as Read Only to the iCal Application

to confirm that. just double click in a day with the subscribed calendar selected and you will get this annoying popup message

alt text

What should I do to enable read/write mode into the subscribed calendar, as it supports both ways (I created the URL and works great with Thunderbird w/Lightning)

Problem also comes that in iPad/iX happens the same situation, and all I wanted was to be able to create and edit events to by calendar

Is this a CalDAV calendar? Or just an .ics file on a server somewhere? (WebDAV?) –  Chealion Oct 19 '10 at 23:37
    
the file in CalDAV is an iCal format, so .ics. Right now it's a web server that reads Http Methods such as PROPFIND and PUT and delivers an iCal file. –  balexandre Oct 20 '10 at 9:54

LOL you're using iCal wrong. Deselect the cal you subscribed to put any personal notations you have in your own calendar that you do have r/w access to. Just because you subscribe doesn't mean you can "edit". If you "create" your own cal you can change it anyway you'd like.

you're quite arrogant aren't you? iCal WebDav is enabled for Read and Write, but iCal App does not do it, if you use Mozilla Thunderbird with Lightning, you will see you are able to edit ANY Subscribed URL !!! –  balexandre Mar 8 '11 at 8:09
