Implemented "Pluggable" functions


Active member
The ability to replace functions. Take for example a function in the Wordpress pluggable.php file:

if ( !function_exists('wp_get_current_user') ) :
* Retrieve the current user object.
* @since 2.0.3
* @return WP_User Current user WP_User object
function wp_get_current_user() {
global $current_user;


return $current_user;

This really helps when doing integrations or bridges to other platforms. Of course not every function is in there, but many of the key ones are. I cannot think of how many times I wanted to replace for example. the fetch_template() function in VB lol..
