  • My developer has updated my WordPress to the latest and with it comes Gutenberg. I’m not a fan and I see every one of my HTML paragraphs now looks like this:

    <!-- wp:paragraph -->
    <p>Hello world!</p>
    <!-- /wp:paragraph -->

    Needless to say, the <!-- wp:paragraph --> is confusing to me, especially because I write my content in HTML and it just adds unnecessary bulk that I don’t want or need. Gutenberg places the block tags around everything, including images. I don’t want to deal with these.

    I tried using this plugin to disable Gutenberg entirely: https://wordpress.org/plugins/classic-editor/ but the Gutenberg paragraph tags remain. How can I revert my HTML content back to how it was before this awful Gutenberg update?

    Only the content that was saved while using Gutenberg will have those block tags. The other content should remain untouched.
    There might be a plugin to remove HTML comments, but a quick search didn’t show it to me. Here is an online one that you can use manually: https://html-cleaner.com/
