I've got it! :D

It was your hint with the ascii-characters that lead me to testing with InternetExplorer (instead of Firefox)

But it's not the "Leerzeichen" [space characters] which matter, but the "&"-sign in the description of the feed.

Eliminating the "&" out of RSS description in Component / Module properties solved it. Now RSS works excellent with both IE an Firefox :-)

Result:
- non-ascii ("Umlaute") in category names and content is allowed
- "&" (and whatelse more?) in feed description is bad

One aspect is missing for my complete luck with RSS:
how can within the RSS-Link to the event the appended option "?tmpl=component" be suppressed? It's because I'd like to get the event displayed in the normal template environment where the website navigation is shown...

Example:
Given RSS Link is:
http://www.tedrichley.de/index.php/event-einreichen/icalrepeat.detail/2012/10/22/2/-/es-laeuft?tmpl=component

What I want is:
http://www.tedrichley.de/index.php/event-einreichen/icalrepeat.detail/2012/10/22/2/-/es-laeuft

I've been investigating in parameters and files for hours with no success...

Hello,

Why would you want to remove the component part?

This is to remove the sites modules etc from the url.

Regards

Hi Tonyp,

I guess you didn't understand me right. Not to remove the whole link, but only the appended "?tmpl=component"

This appending forces a bare view of the component without the navigation facilities of my website.

If you'd try both links, you'd recognize, what I mean :-)

Hello,

I understand correctly. But removing such from the URL I believe it will no longer work correctly as a valid RSS Feed? or at least from my understanding.

Hm, but when I use the Link without "?tmpl=component" it will lead correctly to the event, in this case embedded in the template of my website?!?

Hello Ted,

What is it exactly you are trying to achieve? what you are talking about is an RSS Link, this is designed to display a list of recent events depending on its configuration.

That is very useful to know - I'll add the code to strip out special characters from this description for the next release.

Your testing input is very valuable - thanks

Gerain - your software is very valuable, thanks :-)


Once more to the matter with RSS-Link. Unfortunately my language skills may be too low to make it clear...

Tonyp, in the following two pics I'd like try to show, what I'm trying to achieve:

Aimed effect of shortened RSS-Link:

thanks - that is a problem introduced in Joomla 3.0

If you add this code
$link = str_replace("&tmpl=component","",$link );
after line 42 of components/com_jevents/views/modlatest/tmpl/rss.php it will remove this tmpl=component element
