In the body field of a content type, I have added an image at the start. In my view, I want to show 200 characters from the body field. It also prints the image.

How can I skip the photos from the body field in the view, and print just the text?

  • Are you using the teaser version of the body in your View?

Edit the Body Field Rewrite results in your Views and enable the option Strip HTML tags. Use Preserve certain tags if you have other elements within your text you want to show, enter them there.

This option is below the Trim this field to a maximum number of characters you're probably using, you'll probably want to also use the suboption Field can contain HTML.
