Filters the value of an existing transient.

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


(mixed) 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.


(string) Transient name.
