apply_filters( 'wp_untrash_post_status', string $new_status, int $post_id, string $previous_status )

Filters the status that a post gets assigned when it is restored from the trash (untrashed).


By default posts that are restored will be assigned a status of ‘draft’. Return the value of $previous_status in order to assign the status that the post had before it was trashed. The wp_untrash_post_set_previous_status() function is available for this.

Prior to WordPress 5.6.0, restored posts were always assigned their original status.
