The Solutions:

Below are the methods you can try. The first solution is probably the best. Try others if the first one doesn’t work. Senior developers aren’t just copying/pasting – they read the methods carefully & apply them wisely to each case.

Method 1

Use wp_strip_all_tags() to remove the content of script and style elements too:

echo wp_strip_all_tags( get_the_content() );
