themes_api filter-hook . WP 2.8.0

Filters whether to override the WordPress.org Themes API.

Passing a non-false value will effectively short-circuit the WordPress.org API request.

If $action is 'query_themes', 'theme_information', or 'feature_list', an object MUST be passed. If $action is 'hot_tags', an array should be passed.


add_filter( 'themes_api', 'filter_function_name_1279', 10, 3 );
function filter_function_name_1279( $override, $action, $args ){
	// filter...

	return $override;
