true if the callback is registered.
Show It in ActionBasic
Let’s see the
remove_filter function in action. In this video, you will see how it works.
Who needs copy/paste? Right. Writing code from scratch is fun!
In this video, you will go deeper into the instruction by looking at WordPress Core.
Generate a Unique IDPro
When registering an object’s method, static method, or closure, the event registry look-up table needs to generate a unique ID for the key in the registry (remember it’s an array). Let’s reverse engineer the function
_wp_filter_build_unique_id() to better understand the event registry system in WordPress as well as how to grab ahold of a callback to unregister it.

Unregistering an Object’s MethodPro
These two videos you will first learn about why you must grab the actual object (slight introduction to OOP) and then how to actually unregister the object’s method callback.
Unregistering a Static MethodPro
In this video, you will walk through and reverse engineer WordPress Core to understand how to unregister a static method.
Unregistering a ClosurePro
In this video, you will walk through and reverse engineer WordPress Core to understand how to unregister a closure, or if you can unregister one.
These are the PHP constructs used in WordPress Core for
