Wordpress the_content_limit formatting driving me crazy!

    I have done tons of searches and I still can not find a real solution to this issue.

    When using the_content_limit in Wordpress, it is adding paragraph "<p>" tags around the content.

    Example:
    SEMrush
    <?php the_content_limit(40, ""); ?>
    <strong><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>">Read More...</a></strong>
    PHP:
    I want the content to cut off and the "Read More" link to stay on the same line as the content. However, it is outputted like this:


    <p>The content cut off at 40 characters<a href='http://www.example.com/article'></a></p><strong><a href="http://www.example.com/article">Read More...</a></strong>
    HTML:
    Notice that the content is wrapped in paragraph tags so now the "Read More..." link appears on a new line.

    How can I correct this??

    What file is that in, and is it a different theme or the default? I'm not finding this particular code in the default theme.
