[resolved] [Plugin: The Events Calendar] Links in events not live in View All Events list (3 posts)

    This plugin is working well for us as we're getting ready to go live on our blog. We do have one issue I'm wondering if there's any way to work around. If we have a link in an event (like a link to a registration page), the text of the link shows up in the View All Events list, but isn't a live link. If you go to the post for a particular event, the link is live, as it should be. Is there any way to have the link be live when looking at a list of events? Alternatively, is there any way for the text of the link to be hidden except where the link is actually live? As it is, it's confusing to anyone seeing the View All Events list.

    I've been told the answer to my question above, so I thought I'd share it. The behavior we're seeing is actually a feature of the theme we're using (and maybe others as well), Atahualpa. It will automatically strip HTML tags from excerpts of a post, and there is a configuration setting to specify which tags you don't want it to strip from excerpts. So, by adding the tag to that configuration setting, links now are live on the excerpts of a post. We've also added to the list so bold text shows up as bolded.

    the two tags I mentioned in my reply above (that got interpreted instead of shown, as I ought to have known would happen) are the 'a' tag for links and 'strong' for bolding!
