When I print a url onto my site, it automatically gets wrapped in:
<blockquote class="wp-embedded-content" data-secret="tDj3qpdVAi"><a href="https://www.example.com/">Example Domain</a></blockquote>
even though all I printed to the page is "https://www.example.com/". What is this mechanism and how can I disable either on a specific page or site-wide?
What I Tried
- adding the code here to my functions file: https://crunchify.com/how-to-disable-auto-embed-script-for-wordpress-4-4-wp-embed-min-js/
- adding both snippets of code (separately) from here to my functions file: https://kinsta.com/knowledgebase/disable-embeds-wordpress/#:~:text=Disable%20Embeds%20in%20WordPress%20With,the%20core%20contributors%20to%20WordPress.
