Filters whether to update metadata of a specific type.

Syntax Syntax

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

Description 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 Parameters


Whether to allow updating metadata for the given type.


ID of the object metadata is for.


Metadata key.


Metadata value. Must be serializable if non-scalar.


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