Syntax Syntax

apply_filters( "pre_transient_{$transient}", mixed $pre_transient, string $transient )

Description Description

The dynamic portion of the hook name, $transient, refers to the transient name.

Passing a truthy value to the filter will effectively short-circuit retrieval of the transient, returning the passed value instead.

Parameters Parameters


The default value to return if the transient does not exist. Any value other than false will short-circuit the retrieval of the transient, and return the returned value.
