Filters whether to update metadata of a specific type by meta ID.

Syntax Syntax

apply_filters( "update_{$meta_type}_metadata_by_mid", null|bool $check, int $meta_id, mixed $meta_value, string|bool $meta_key )

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


(null|bool) Whether to allow updating metadata for the given type.


(int) Meta ID.


(mixed) Meta value. Must be serializable if non-scalar.


(string|bool) Meta key, if provided.
