pre_get_avatar_data filter-hook . WP 4.2.0

Filters whether to retrieve the avatar URL early.

Passing a non-null value in the 'url' member of the return array will effectively short circuit get_avatar_data(), passing the value through the 'get_avatar_data' filter and returning early.


add_filter( 'pre_get_avatar_data', 'filter_function_name_1264', 10, 2 );
function filter_function_name_1264( $args, $id_or_email ){
	// filter...

	return $args;
Arguments passed to get_avatar_data(), after processing.
The Gravatar to retrieve. Accepts a user_id, gravatar md5 hash, user email, WP_User object, WP_Post object, or WP_Comment object.


Since 4.2.0 Introduced.
