How to exclude images from wordpress post

In one of project I got requirement of to exclude images from WordPress post.

I written following code for excluding the image from Post

Above line I added in showing post without image.

$FormatedContent = content_with_formatting();
$content = the_content();
$postWithoutImage = preg_replace(‘/<img[^>]+./’,” $FormatedContent);
echo $postWithoutImage;
In above code we are checking the image tag and replacing with none.

If you want to find all images from post then Use following command.
preg_match_all(‘/<img[^>]+>/i’,YOUR_text, $result);

You need to add following function in your function.php file(Theme files).
function content_with_formatting($more_link_text = ‘(more…)’, $stripteaser = 0, $more_file = ”)
$content = get_the_content($more_link_text, $stripteaser, $more_file);
$content = apply_filters(‘the_content’, $content);
$content = str_replace(‘]]>’, ‘]]>’, $content);
return $content;

If you want to Hide all images using CSS then use following code

Just put above code in your style.css file.

  1. hi there,

    couldn’t find any contact info for you so thought i would post here. I am trying to do a similar thing with posts but want to exclude text/numbers

    The reason why is that i’m having people post via email with mms from a mobile phone, the generated email that comes from the mobile provider contains “the following number ******** has sent you a picture. I don’t want to publish peoples phone numbers.

    Do you have any ideas? Haven’t been able to find this anywhere.

    Many thanks jon

  2. Hi,

    Your tutorial is good but there’s some error I’d like to point out.

    $FormatedContent = content_with_formatting();
    //$content = the_content(); //This line must be removed or the_content will still output
    $postWithoutImage = preg_replace('/]+./','', $FormatedContent);
    echo $postWithoutImage;
