Support » Plugins and Hacks » using authenticate filter and returning a WP_Error

  • I’m developing a plugin that uses the authenticate filter to intercept a login. After going through my logic I want to return an error to the logn screen and halt the login process. In side my function I have…

    function myAuth($user = NULL, $username = '', $password = '')
    {
      //.. after my login I want to return an error
      return new WP_Error('invalid_username', __('my message'));
    }

    The problem is that my message does not get returned – I just get the standard message for an invalid username. How do I correct this?
