How to Remove WordPress Excerpts

How to Remove ALL WordPress Excerpts from the database?..

I found a method to remove all WordPress post excerpts at:

It runs in phpMyAdmin, on the SQL tab.

I selected the wp_posts folder under the database that had the relevant data.

The code I used was:

UPDATE wp_posts SET post_excerpt=” WHERE post_type=’post’

This code removed the excerpts on all posts other than on the old ‘revisions’. That was not a problem to me.

I did back up the database first, just in case it went wrong.

It is worth doing the view option first, as shown at stackoverflow, to check what will be deleted.
