#20920 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Removing all hooks too aggressive if a priority number is given

Reported by: geertdd's profile GeertDD Owned by: boonebgorges's profile boonebgorges
Milestone: 4.2 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 3.3.2
Component: Plugins Keywords: has-patch

When you call remove_all_filters() or remove_all_actions() with a priority number (second parameter), all hooks get removed if none is found with the given priority.


global $wp_filter;

add_action('my_action', 'callback_foo');
add_action('my_action', 'callback_bar', 20);

// At this point only callback_foo is left. Fine.
remove_all_actions('my_action', 20);

// Exactly the same function call as above,
// but now all hooks bound to my_action are removed!
remove_all_actions('my_action', 20);

Calling remove_all_filters() or remove_all_actions() with a priority should never remove hooks with another priority.

In remove_all_filters(), only remove callbacks that match the $priority parameter.
