pre_unschedule_event filter-hook . WP 5.1.0

Filter to preflight or hijack unscheduling of events.

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

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


add_filter( 'pre_unschedule_event', 'filter_function_name_8820', 10, 4 );
function filter_function_name_8820( $pre, $timestamp, $hook, $args ){
	// filter...

	return $pre;
Value to return instead.
Default: null to continue unscheduling the event
Timestamp for when to run the event.
Action hook, the execution of which will be unscheduled.
Arguments to pass to the hook's callback function.


Since 5.1.0 Introduced.
