WordPress Tip – Removing tags from post excerpt

OK a small tip that I found really useful.

When your trying to get the excerpt of the post in WordPress site you use the following method,

<?php the_excerpt(); ?>

The problem with above is that it will include its own <p> or paragraph tags. There might be an occasion where you don’t wont those tags, like I did today. So then you use the following code,

<?php echo get_the_excerpt(); ?>

Hope this helps 🙂
