I have a Wordpress website and i am trying to display content from it on another webpage.
To do this i have installed the WP Rest API plugin (http://v2.wp-api.org/)
I have also installed WP REST API Filter Items plugin (https://github.com/bueltge/wp-rest-api-filter-items)

Using these 2 plugins i am able to retrieve posts from my wordpress website using a GET request, like this:
http://www.heavenlygardens.org.uk/wp-json/wp/v2/posts/1103?items=content

You can see it in action at this url by clicking on the marker:

As you can see the following content is returned:
{"content":{"rendered":"<p>This is a demo &#8211; this info should display on the Profile tab!<\/p>\n","protected":false}}

How do i format the output, so that only the content within the <p></p> tags is displayed?

<?php

$obj=json_decode('{"content":{"rendered":"<p>This is a demo &#8211; this info should display on the Profile tab!<\/p>\n","protected":false}}');
$rendered=strip_tags($obj->content->rendered);
echo $rendered;

?>
