  • hi,

    seems to be working fine on my test site upon testing; Is this using latest stable version or dev version? also, have you tried to temporarily:

    – deactivating all other plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    – using rss link

    Alternative feed formats show the same errors, e.g.

    Using the hook inspector function from I investigated if there is any other plugins that affect the the_excerpt_rss or other similar functions, but there isn’t.

    Looking at the database I found that the extra text comes from the post_excerpt field so I ran
    mysql> update wp_posts set post_excerpt=”” where id=2331;
    and it got fixed.

    So the problem is with Events Manager is, that if the event has en excerpt defined (on purpose or accidentally) that will be the content of the RSS, which is not good, since that will make the content non-uniform and leave date, time and location out..

    I assume this is using the WP feed generator? I’m guessing we don’t hook into the the_excerpt_rss filter or similar, will test this out and fix by 5.2.6 (end of month)
