The following example is for adding a hook callback.
  1. // define the media_upload_<type> callback 
  2. function action_media_upload_type( ) { 
  3. // make action magic happen here... 
  4. }; 
  6. // add the action 
  7. add_action( "media_upload_{$type}", 'action_media_upload_type', 10, 0 ); 
To remove a hook callback, use the example below.
