Support » Plugins and Hacks » strip_tags() is not working on the_excerpt()

  • Hi all,

    I’m trying to use the_excerpt() function to create a meta description tag based on each post.

    The problem is that the_exceprt() wraps the content in <p></p> and also includes any other html formatting added to the post.

    I tried using the php strip_tags() function to remove the tags, but it doesn’t seem to be working.

    <meta name=”Description” content=”<?php strip_tags(the_excerpt()); ?>” />

    Does anyone have any idea how I can get this to work?

    Thanks!
    Erik
