get_term ( $term, $taxonomy = '', $output = OBJECT, $filter = 'raw' )
- (int|WP_Term|object) term If integer, term data will be fetched from the database, or from the cache if available. If stdClass object (as in the results of a database query), will apply filters and return a `WP_Term` object corresponding to the `$term` data. If `WP_Term`, will return `$term`.
- (string) taxonomy Optional. Taxonomy name that $term is part of.
- (string) output Optional. The required return type. One of OBJECT, ARRAY_A, or ARRAY_N, which correspond to a WP_Term object, an associative array, or a numeric array, respectively. Default OBJECT.
- (string) filter Optional. How to sanitize term fields. Default 'raw'.
Defined at:Change Log:
- (WP_Term|array|WP_Error|null) Object of the type specified by `$output` on success. When `$output` is 'OBJECT', a WP_Term instance is returned. If taxonomy does not exist, a WP_Error is returned. Returns null for miscellaneous failure.

Get all Term data from database by Term ID.The usage of the get_term function is to apply filters to a term object. It
is possible to get a term object from the database before applying the
$term ID must be part of $taxonomy, to get from the database. Failure, might
be able to be captured by the hooks. Failure would be the same value as $wpdb
returns for the get_row method.
There are two hooks, one is specifically for each term, named 'get_term', and
the second is for the taxonomy name, 'term_$taxonomy'. Both hooks gets the
term object, and the taxonomy name as parameters. Both hooks are expected to
return a Term object.
Array hook - Takes two parameters the term Object and the taxonomy name.
Must return term object. Used in get_term() as a catch-all filter for every
Array hook - Takes two parameters the term Object and the taxonomy
name. Must return term object. $taxonomy will be the taxonomy name, so for
example, if 'category', it would be 'get_category' as the filter name. Useful
for custom taxonomies or plugging into default taxonomies.
