Event Marketing Description is empty

Hi. I am using the ctctWrapper.php to access the event marketing collection.


The problem is fairly simple. The raw XML coming back doesn;t have any text in the <description></description> area?


I have filled in the description for my event, but it is not coming across? My account is a free trial account, perhaps this is the issue?

I've done some looking into this and it appears that this is not an issue with the PHP wrapper, but rather with the XML being returned from a get on the events collection as you had said. When performing a GET on 'https://api.constantcontact.com/ws/customers/{user-name}/events', the <description> node for each entry will be empty. However, when retrieving details for that specific event 'https://api.constantcontact.com/ws/customers/{user-name}/events/{event-id}' the description node will be filled out properly.


 


I am going to be submitting this to our engineering department to look at. I certainly apologize for any inconvenience that this issue has caused. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns regarding this.

 Thank you for the verification David. I guess I will add  supplementary call to the get details function. I hate to hit your server twice, but it seems to be the only workaround.
