Event description gets mangled

Recommended Posts

One of my users created an event with the description:

 

9:30 & 11:30a.m.Worship

 

This showed up in the calendar as

 

& 11:30a.m.Worship

 

When I changed this to:

 

9:30 and 11:30a.m.Worship

 

This appeared as:

 

9:30 and 11:30a.m.Worship

 

where the underlined section is a link to the event and the bold part is a link to http://30a.m.Wors/

 

I did not want to play around anymore for fear of corrupting the data too much.

 

Should I be escaping those characters?

Hi Dean,

 

Sorry you're experiencing this odd behavior.

 

I looked at your calendar and one issue I noticed was when the name of the event did not have spaces, for example: &11:30a.m.worship, the odd behavior occurs. When I added a space between "a.m." and "Worship" in your calendar (hope that's OK with you that I was testing this), the problem went away. However, I don't know why this is occurring or why the 9:30 is getting removed from the beginning of the event name. It's possible the use of the "&" in the title is causing a problem, but I don't want to recommend that you change that to an "and" until we investigate this a bit.

 

I am going to report your issue as a bug and I'll get back to you with what I find out.

p.s. One other question for you - did you import the data for these events, or did the person who entered this data enter it directly into your Trumba account?

Hi Dean,

 

I haven't heard back from the developer on this bug yet, but what I can recommend in the meantime is to make sure you (or anyone else adding event description information) include spaces between the times and words in the description.

 

In other words, instead of entering something like:

 

9:30&11:30a.m.Worship

 

enter it like this:

 

9:30 & 11:30 a.m. Worship

 

Have you had any new issues with any description information being dropped from the beginning since you first reported this?

 

Regards,
