1 file.module file_needs_type_classification($rebuild = NULL)

Toggles or reads the value of a flag for classifying the file types.

When the flag is set, a message is displayed to users with 'access administration pages' permission, pointing to the 'classify' confirm form. That form will trigger the type classification of managed files that do not currently have a type. This is often the case after upgrading from Drupal 7.


bool|NULL $rebuild: (optional) The boolean value to be written.

Return value

bool|NULL: The current value of the flag if no value was provided for $rebuild.
