    HI Daniel,
    the link does not actually give me the ics url. However I know that the plugin does not add new lines – they will be in the ICS file. Open it in a text editor yourself to check.

    A quick google indicates that outlook however does have a general tendency to strip blank lines. https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-d&q=outlook+calendar+strips+line

    If you don’t want blank lines, don’t add them in the source. Also the ics does not explicitly accept html in the ‘SUMMARY’ descriptions so you best not to have it in the ICS description as you may find variable support with applications reading that ics file.

    If you want to use html in the event in wordpress, better to go with amr-events.

    thanks anmari!

    maybe it’s time for amr-events, you’re right!
