EE$ – iCal Import Title/Name of Event

– WP 3.9.2
– EE4 – 4.3.1p
– Upgraded install, however this was an issue in the previous version that introduced the iCal integration.
– I can PM you a pre-prod site URL if you need it.

After downloading and importing the ics file for an event, the event title in my calendar (Gmail, Outlook) is displaying the description from the event and not the title (name) from the event.

I know in EED_ical.module.php I can change the foloowing to get what I want:

$summary = EED_Ical::_escape_ICal_data( wp_trim_words( $event->description() ));


$summary = $event->name();

Is there any way to do this in an update proof way?

Hi Mike,

We are addressing this in an upcoming version of Event Espresso. We’ll update this support post once that has been released. Until then, you would need to edit the core to make that change.

This is being changed in EE 4.4 to show the title instead of the description.
