    This disables the attempt to return an automatically generated excerpt in the scenario where one isn’t manually set.

    add_filter('wp_trim_excerpt', 'disable_auto_excerpt', 10, 2 );
    // Return only the raw excerpt text if one is manually set.
      function disable_auto_excerpt($text, $raw_excerpt) {
          if ($raw_excerpt) {
            return $text;
          else {
            return '';
