#52427 closed enhancement (duplicate)

Enahnce excerpt_remove_blocks to ignore disallowed inner blocks but not exclude the parent block entirely

I agree that certain blocks most likely cannot contribute to an auto-generated excerpt in a meaningful way. However, in the case where a parent block has multiple inner blocks and some of the blocks in the parent could contribute to the excerpt why is the baby thrown out with the bathwater?

I propose enhancing excerpt_remove_blocks to continue parsing the remaining inner blocks of a parent block while ignoring those that are not whitelisted.
