Calls the callback functions that have been added to a filter hook.

This function invokes all functions attached to filter hook $hook_name. It is possible to create new filter hooks by simply calling this function, specifying the name of the new hook using the $hook_name parameter. The function also allows for multiple additional arguments to be passed to hooks. Example usage: // The filter callback function. function example_callback( $string, $arg1, $arg2 ) { // (maybe) modify $string. return $string; } add_filter( 'example_filter', 'example_callback', 10, 3 ); / Apply the filters by calling the 'example_callback()' function that's hooked onto example_filter above. - 'example_filter' is the filter hook. - 'filter me' is the value being filtered. * - $arg1 and $arg2 are the additional arguments passed to the callback. $value = apply_filters( 'example_filter', 'filter me', $arg1, $arg2 );
