I understand this is a wordpress “feature” to strip excerpts, and that Modern Tribe has done this for compatibility, however, I don’t understand why you have not given the users the choice to customize this functionality. It is a very basic request to want a line break in an excerpt, yet it is impossible without various hacks/workarounds which I have not been able to figure out.
The excerpts are formatted because that’s how I want them to display. Please tell me how to fix this issue, and please tell me that there are developments in the works to solve this problem for users. I have a very hard time believing that users aren’t frustrated by the fact that they can’t have bold text or line breaks in their event descriptions.
