    The allowable HTML tags are in an array called bb_allowed_tags. I think you could create a plugin that just empties that array.

    I’ve only seen people requesting the opposite, allowing additional HTML markup, so I’m not sure exactly how to do this.

    Thanks for your help. I tried but I couldnt do it. Any other ideas?

    The function you’re looking for is bb_allowed_tags in, and the allowed tags are stored in an array called $tags.

    Create your own plugin file in /my-plugins/, activate it, and apply code to remove (unset) the desired HTML tags from the array. Or just empty the array completely (although I haven’t tested this). Below is an example where I removed anchor/hyperlink functionality in posts:

    function remove_a_in_allowed_tags( $tags ) {


    return $tags;


    add_filter( 'bb_allowed_tags', 'remove_a_in_allowed_tags' );

    You can quickly test this by inspecting the $tags array with the following code:

    // test allowed tags

    $tags = bb_allowed_tags();
