apply_filters( 'pre_http_request', false, $parsed_args, $url )
Parameters: (3)
  • (false|array|WP_Error) $preempt Whether to preempt an HTTP request's return value. Default false.
    Required: Yes
  • (array) $parsed_args HTTP request arguments.
    Required: Yes
  • (string) $url The request URL.
    Required: Yes
Defined at:

Filters whether to preempt an HTTP request's return value.

Returning a non-false value from the filter will short-circuit the HTTP request and return early with that value. A filter should return either:

  • An array containing 'headers', 'body', 'response', 'cookies', and 'filename' elements
  • A WP_Error instance
  • boolean false (to avoid short-circuiting the response)

Returning any other value may result in unexpected behaviour.
