function is not described

excerpt_remove_blocks() WP 5.0.0

Parses blocks out of a content string, and renders those appropriate for the excerpt.

As the excerpt should be a small string of text relevant to the full post content, this function renders the blocks that are most likely to contain such text.

Return

String. The parsed and filtered content.

Usage

excerpt_remove_blocks( $content );
$content(string) (required)
The content to parse.

Changelog

Since 5.0.0 Introduced.
