pre_reschedule_event filter-hook . WP 5.1.0

Filter to preflight or hijack rescheduling of events.

Returning a non-null value will short-circuit the normal rescheduling process, causing the function to return the filtered value instead.

For plugins replacing wp-cron, return true if the event was successfully rescheduled, false if not.


add_filter( 'pre_reschedule_event', 'filter_function_name_3749', 10, 2 );
function filter_function_name_3749( $pre, $event ){
	// filter...

	return $pre;
Value to return instead.
Default: null to continue adding the event

  • $args (array)
