I have only been working with SS for a little while but up until now, I've been able to solve my issues by reading and experimenting. I have a problem with events in my upcoming events. Nothing about adding and showing them. The problem I am having is that any links I add, show up in brackets on the upcoming events pages. The links appear normally in the EventPage but the Calendar pages displays the URL / ID=*** before the text of the link. I've attached a picture to help with my description.

In my example, the [] is what is in double quotes of the <a href>

Yeah, all those truncation functions like FirstParagraph(), FirstSentence(), etc., aren't HTML safe -- with good reason. You never know if you're breaking an open tag. So your choices are:

- Leave the HTML out of the teaser section of the body
- Show the entire body on the list page
- Create a new HTML field on your Event object for "Teaser" and display that on the calendar template so you have full control over the truncation.
