media_library_months_with_files filter-hookWP 4.7.4

Allows overriding the list of months displayed in the media library.

By default (if this filter does not return an array), a query will be run to determine the months that have media items. This query can be expensive for large media libraries, so it may be desirable for sites to override this behavior.


add_filter( 'media_library_months_with_files', 'wp_kama_media_library_months_with_files_filter' );

 * Function for `media_library_months_with_files` filter-hook.

function wp_kama_media_library_months_with_files_filter( $months ){

	// filter...
