Support » Fixing WordPress » “Convert to Blocks” adds CSS class

  • I’m updating a bunch of old posts. When I click on the Classic Block and select “Convert to Blocks”, every one of the newly created Paragraph blocks has “p3” in the “Advanced”->”Additional CSS Class(es)” field. I have no idea what that is (presumably it’s related to some old theme we’re no longer using). But I don’t know how to prevent it from happening, or remove it in bulk. Can someone point me to any clues or tips?

    I’ve learned more. Sometimes the class is “p1” or “p2”, even when the block type is actually a Heading rather than Paragraph.

    And some of the heading blocks have both a class on the heading tag and a <span>, like this:
    <h3 class="p2"><span class="s1">Some text</span></h3>
    Changing it to H2 (which I want) and removing the “p2” class can be done on the block settings on the right, but to get rid of the span, I have to select “Edit as HTML” and manually remove the <span> and </span> tags, and even in my current theme, that affects the appearance – for some reason, my theme sets the color of any span inside a heading to gray, overriding the heading color, so I need to remove the spans. Any idea how to do that more efficiently?
