function remove_block_gutenberg( $content, $blockname ) {
$blockname = str_replace('/', '\/',preg_quote($blockname));
return preg_replace('/\<\!\-\- ' . $blockname . '[^)]+\/' . $blockname . ' \-\-\>/', '', $content);
}
// Based on this ticket https://wordpress.org/support/topic/strip-table-of-content-from-excerpt/

// This happens because blocks can be everything from html, json or html comments and they are in the post_content
