media_library_months_with_files filter-hook . WP 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', 'filter_function_name_4947' );
function filter_function_name_4947( $months ){
	// filter...

	return $months;
An array of objects with month and year properties, or null (or any other non-array value) for default behavior.


Since 4.7.4 Introduced.
