    The attachment_submit_meta_box function is a WordPress core function used to render a meta box on the Edit Media screen in the WordPress admin. This meta box allows users to perform actions and make changes related to media attachments (e.g., images, videos) associated with posts or pages.

    Here are the key details about the attachment_submit_meta_box function:

    Parameters: It accepts a single parameter, $post, which is an instance of the WP_Post class representing the media attachment being edited.

    Purpose: This function renders the content of the “Attachment Details” meta box, which is displayed on the Edit Media screen. This meta box contains fields and options for modifying various attributes of the attachment, such as the title, caption, alt text, description, and attachment alignment.

    Usage: Typically, you don’t need to call this function directly in your code. WordPress core handles the rendering of this meta box automatically when you’re editing media attachments through the admin interface.

    Hooks: If you want to customize the behavior or content of this meta box, you can do so by using WordPress hooks and filters, such as add_meta_boxes and save_post. These allow you to add or modify fields and data associated with media attachments.

    In summary, attachment_submit_meta_box is a WordPress core function responsible for rendering the “Attachment Details” meta box in the admin interface, providing a way to edit and manage media attachment attributes.
