tribe_without_filters( array $filters, callable $do )

Runs a callback or Closure taking care to detach and reattach a set of filters.

The purpose of this function is to make sure a certain callback will run in a "clean" filter environment where a set of filters (and actions) has been suspended to avoid side effects from applying to it. The function guarantees the existing filters will be detached and re-attached only to run the callback, avoiding issues where some piece of code might detach some filters and not re-attach them due to errors.

Parameters #


(<span class="array">array) (Required) A set of filter, or actions, handles to detach before running the callback and re-attach after.


(callable) (Required) The callback, or Closure, that should run in the context where the specified set of filters has been "suspended".
