If you are a WordPress user, you may have encountered a strange acronym or random obj in a box in your post titles. These objects can appear for various reasons, such as copying text from a different application like Google Docs or an obj file. In this article, we’ll be able to guide you on how to remove the obj in a box in WordPress post titles.
Understanding the Issue
Copying and pasting text from an external source into the WordPress editor can sometimes bring in unexpected formatting or characters, including Unicode characters or object replacement characters. This can result in a strange acronym or a random obj in a box that can be challenging to remove.
Removing the Object in the WordPress Editor
The easiest way to remove an obj in WordPress is through the WordPress editor. To do this, click on the post title containing the obj in the WordPress post editor. You can then place your cursor on the obj, highlight it, and press the backspace or delete key on your keyboard to remove it. If the obj is placed in a text box or another object, you can click on the object and then remove the obj using the same method.
Removing the Object in the Text Editor
If the obj in WordPress post titles is not visible in the visual editor, it may be hiding in the code of the text editor. To remove it, go to the post in question and click on the “Text” tab in the upper-right corner of the WordPress editor. This will show you the plain text code of the post. Please search for the obj or the object replacement character and remove it from the code. Once you have removed it, save your changes, and switch to the visual editor.
Removing the Object in Google Docs
If you copy text from Google Docs to WordPress, you may encounter an obj in a box. To remove this, select the text in Google Docs with the obj and press
cmd + shift + x (Mac) or
ctrl + shift + x (Windows). This will remove any formatting, including the obj in the text. You can copy and paste the plain text into WordPress to avoid further issues.
Preventing Obj in WordPress Post Titles
Prevention is always better than cure. Here are some tips to prevent strange acronyms or random obj in a box from appearing in your WordPress post titles.
- Copy and paste text into a plain text editor first, like Notepad or TextEdit, to remove any formatting or special characters before pasting into WordPress.
- If you must copy and paste from Google Docs, use the “Paste as Plain Text” option in the WordPress editor to avoid any formatting issues.
- Avoid copying and pasting text that is contained within an object, like a text box or image, as this can bring in unwanted characters or formatting.
Removing an obj in a box in WordPress post titles can be frustrating, but it is a solvable issue. By following the steps outlined in this article, you can quickly remove the obj using the WordPress editor or text editor. Remember to take preventative measures by using a plain text editor or avoiding copying and pasting from objects to avoid any issues in the future.
