    We will create a function that modifies link titles containing the word “Privacy” by prefixing them with “Modified: “. We will use WordPress filters to achieve this.

    Step 1: Define the Function

    function wpdocs_modify_privacy_on_link_title_defaults( $title ) {
        // Check if the title contains the word 'Privacy'
        if ( strpos( $title, 'Privacy' ) !== false ) {
            // Modify the title
            $title = 'Modified: ' . $title;
        return $title;
    // Add the filter
    add_filter( 'privacy_on_link_title', 'wpdocs_modify_privacy_on_link_title_defaults' );

    Step 2: Apply the Filter for Demonstration

    // For demonstration, we'll use the filter on a sample link title
    $sample_title = __( 'Privacy Policy' );
    $modified_title = apply_filters( 'wpdocs_privacy_on_link_title', $sample_title );
    // Output the result for demonstration purposes
    echo $modified_title;  // This should output "Modified: Privacy Policy"

    Step 3: Remove the Filter (Optional)

    // Remove the filter if you no longer need it
    remove_filter( 'privacy_on_link_title", 'wpdocs_modify_privacy_on_link_title_defaults' );
