This is my code:

<div id="test">
   <p>My Text</p>
   <p>My Text</p>
</div>

I need jQuery that will remove all the p tags from#test and just leave:

<div id="test">
   My Text
   My Text
</div>

Thanks in advance.

Try this:

$("#teste p").remove();

or

$("#teste").children("p").each(function(){
  $(this).remove();
});


$("#teste").children("p").each(function(){
  $(this).remove();
});

Open in new window

save the text into a variable then apply the code.
Get a array to record it and remove the tags.

Good luck!
