WP_Community_Events::get_events_transient_key()protectedWP 4.8.0

Generates a transient key based on user location.

This could be reduced to a one-liner in the calling functions, but it's intentionally a separate function because it's called from multiple functions, and having it abstracted keeps the logic consistent and DRY, which is less prone to errors.

Method of the class: WP_Community_Events{}

No Hooks.


String|false. Transient key on success, false on failure.


// protected - for code of main (parent) or child class
$result = $this->get_events_transient_key( $location );
$location(array) (required)
Should contain 'latitude' and 'longitude' indexes.


Since 4.8.0 Introduced.
