request_filesystem_credentials filter-hook . WP 2.5.0

Filters the filesystem credentials form output.

Returning anything other than an empty string will effectively short-circuit output of the filesystem credentials form, returning that value instead.


add_filter( 'request_filesystem_credentials', 'filter_function_name_3096', 10, 7 );
function filter_function_name_3096( $output, $form_post, $type, $error, $context, $allow_relaxed_file_ownership, $extra_fields ){
	// filter...

	return $output;
Form output to return instead.
Default: ''
The URL to post the form to.
Chosen type of filesystem.
Whether the current request has failed to connect.
Default: false
Full path to the directory that is tested for being writable.
Whether to allow Group/World writable.
Default: false
Extra POST fields.


Since 2.5.0 Introduced.
Since 4.6.0 The $context parameter default changed from false to an empty string.
