  • Jquery has provided two methods to get content or text of a container tag

    1. text() : Get or set only text for HTML container tags.

    2. html() : Get or set both text and HTML tag for HTML container tags.

    See an example below

    <div class="col-md-2 content-article-detail">
        <p>This is content of article</p>
    </div> 
    
    var content = $(".content-article-detail").text();
    // return content = "This is content of article";
    
    AND
    
    var content = $(".content-article-detail").text(); 
    // return content = "This is content of article";
    

    See a demo here

    *Note: The two methods have different uses, you should consider which one is suitable for your purpose.
