WOOF_Term :: __set( String $name, Mixed $value )

Implements PHP’s __set magic method allowing properties of the term to be set via direct property assignment. This method does not update the database, and you will need to call the WOOF_Term::update method to commit any changes made. 

Note: Any attempt to set the term id directly (the “term_id” property) will be denied, since the id is generated by the database server.

This method also allows a number of properties to be set via alternative aliases which brings a bit more consistency and memorability as compared to the field names used in the database. The alias mappings available are:

  • group => term_group
  • title => name

See the example for how to use these aliases.



  • String $name

    The name of the property to set

  • Mixed $value

    The value of the property.
