determine_current_user filter-hook . WP 3.9.0

Filters the current user.

The default filters use this to determine the current user from the request's cookies, if available.

Returning a value of false will effectively short-circuit setting the current user.


add_filter( 'determine_current_user', 'filter_function_name_7114' );
function filter_function_name_7114( $user_id ){
	// filter...

	return $user_id;
User ID if one has been determined, false otherwise.


Since 3.9.0 Introduced.
