    Requis: Non
    Défaut: array()
  • (array|string) $deprecated Optional. Argument array, when using the legacy function parameter format. If present, this parameter will be interpreted as `$args`, and the first function parameter will be parsed as a taxonomy or array of taxonomies. Default empty.
    Requis: Non
    Défaut: (vide)
  • (WP_Term[]|int[]|string[]|string|WP_Error) Array of terms, a count thereof as a numeric string, or WP_Error if any of the taxonomies do not exist. See the function description for more information.

Retrieves the terms in a given taxonomy or list of taxonomies.

You can fully inject any customizations to the query before it is sent, as well as control the output with a filter. The return type varies depending on the value passed to $args['fields']. See WP_Term_Query::get_terms() for details. In all cases, a WP_Error object will be returned if an invalid taxonomy is requested. The {@see 'get_terms'} filter will be called when the cache has the term and will pass the found term along with the array of $taxonomies and array of $args. This filter is also called before the array of terms is passed and will pass the array of terms, along with the $taxonomies and $args. The {@see 'list_terms_exclusions'} filter passes the compiled exclusions along with the $args. The {@see 'get_terms_orderby'} filter passes the ORDER BY clause for the query along with the $args array. Taxonomy or an array of taxonomies should be passed via the 'taxonomy' argument in the $args array: $terms = get_terms( array( 'taxonomy' => 'post_tag', 'hide_empty' => false, ) ); Prior to 4.5.0, taxonomy was passed as the first parameter of get_terms().
