rest_pre_get_setting filter-hook . WP 4.7.0

Filters the value of a setting recognized by the REST API.

Allow hijacking the setting value and overriding the built-in behavior by returning a non-null value. The returned value will be presented as the setting value instead.


add_filter( 'rest_pre_get_setting', 'filter_function_name_9979', 10, 3 );
function filter_function_name_9979( $result, $name, $args ){
	// filter...

	return $result;
Value to use for the requested setting. Can be a scalar matching the registered schema for the setting, or null to follow the default get_option() behavior.
Setting name (as shown in REST API responses).
Arguments passed to register_setting() for this setting.
