WordPress 4.9.8 introduces a way to register metadata for specific object subtypes, instead of only for whole object types like all post types.
As I needed to skip the last two recaps, I will include posts from that two weeks, which I think are important enough, with the posts from the current week 30 into this post.
Registering metadata in 4.9.8
WordPress 4.9.8 adds the ability to register metadata for a specific object subtype, like a specific post type, instead only for a specific object type.
To achieve that, the
register_meta() function now supports a
object_subtype argument in the args array. Additionally, there are two new functions
register_term_meta() that take the post type or taxonomy as the first parameter, followed by the meta key and additional arguments as an array. Internally, they are wrappers for
register_meta() and are the recommended way to register meta for post types and terms.
More information on that can be found in the post »Registering Metadata in 4.9.8« by Felix Arntz.
