    Hi Hollawaldfee,

    If you change line 106 of templates/ical.php from

    SUMMARY:<?php echo eventorganiser_escape_ical_text( get_the_title_rss() ); ?>


    SUMMARY:<?php echo eventorganiser_escape_ical_text( html_entity_decode( get_the_title_rss() ) ); ?>

    Does that fix the problem from you?

    hey Stephen,
    to the point, as always 🙂 worked like a charme. i expected this to be a decode-function issue, just couldn’t think of where to search…

    i wasn’t even aware of this template file. would a copy inside the theme folder be parsed as well, just like with the other template files?

    on a sidenote: how is everybody’s experience with calendar programs autoupdating changes in the feed/parsing the feed on program start? google calendar checks, but outlook doesn’t, it seems. any other input?

    It was moved there in 2.1 :). And yes, as with all templates can be over-ridden by copying it into your theme.

    You’re the first to say anything r.e. Outlook. Unfortunately its up to the calendar application to check for updates and sync with the feed – so unless there’s a setting to turn this you might have to manually check…
