If I want to add excerpt to my events what I should do ?

if not possible, Can I use get_the_excerpt() from wordpress core ??

I am using Event Espresso – 3.1.15.P Get Version 4.4.2 . and getting empty string if I will try to ver_deump(get_the_excerpt()); on my event list page.

Hi there,

It turns out that in EE3, events are not custom post types. Along with that, they do not have excerpts. You can make a rough equivalent to a hand crafted excerpt by adding the more tag to your event description, then use some PHP in your template like this:

$event_desc = stripslashes_deep($event->event_desc);
$event_desc = explode('<!--more-->', $event_desc);
$event_desc = array_shift($event_desc);

They are added to custom database tables instead of being added to the posts table.

yes, I got it by going through add_new_event.php file and before that I echo(json_encode($event_meta)) I got the idea, thank you for your time ๐Ÿ™‚
