for do_action("edit_term", $term_id, $tt_id); please see

and for do_action("edit_term", $term_id, $tt_id, $taxonomy); please see

I just noticed, the only diff is the version number in the query string!
2nd one is WordPress version: 2.9 while the first is version 2.3

Boy! I had not noticed them before,
thanks to your trigger... now I know I was looking at the
http://adambrown.info site the wrong way all this time.
In this case, all I need to worry about is the latest WP version out there.


and there we have it as  do_action("edit_term", $term_id, $tt_id,

But I'm not sure, if looking for the latest is gonna solve the original
problem I had. Even on the latest version, are all function calls to that
action hook pass the same number of args? That I do not know.

Isn't there a function exactly named as "edit_term" in the core which I can
go and look up to check how many args does that function possibly take ?
That way I'd be going to the function def ( which is in one place) as
opposed to going to function calls to it - thru sites like adambrown?

search and the "edit_term" action is called only once, in
wp-includes/taxonomy.php (
It takes the three parameters as shown in your second example above. There
is an "edit_$taxonomy" hook with calls like that of your first example, and
there is also an "edit_terms" (plural) hook, but I don't see any other
calls to "edit_term".
