apply_filters( "update_{$meta_type}_metadata", null|bool $check, int $object_id, string $meta_key, mixed $meta_value, mixed $prev_value )

Filters whether to update metadata of a specific type.


Description

The dynamic portion of the hook, $meta_type, refers to the meta object type (comment, post, term, or user). Returning a non-null value will effectively short-circuit the function.


Parameters

$check

Whether to allow updating metadata for the given type.

$object_id

Object ID.

$meta_key

Meta key.

$meta_value

Meta value. Must be serializable if non-scalar.

$prev_value

If specified, only update existing metadata entries with the specified value. Otherwise, update all entries.
