I'm putting a shortcode in the event details to pull a post with relevant information. That works beautifully.
But, then I tried to add the <!--more--> tag so that I could just see an excerpt in the event list, instead of the whole long post.
It wasn't working, so I did a little debugging. In events_manager.php, it gets to line 930, so it is seeing the #_EXCERPT placeholder., but when it searches for <!--more-->, it's just searching the shortcode itself instead of the actual content of the post.
I believe with a regular post, I'd apply a filter to the_content to get it to interpret the shortcode first.
But I'm not that familiar with filters and eme is not actually getting the_content, so I'm not quite sure where to go with this. I see in eme_events.php, line 1210 is where $events gets all cleaned up, so I thought I'd try to do something there, but I'm not exactly sure what to do to get it to interpret shortcodes in the notes/details field.
