When using wp_authenticate function the documentation saying returning wp_error or wp_user objects. But when the user is authenticated, the function return a standard object so the test "is_a($thing, 'WP_User')" fail.

Can you supply some more information about the issue? Perhaps do a var_dump() on the result of wp_authenticate ?

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

The var_dump give infos like this : object(stdClass)[4343]

public 'ID' => string '1' (length=1)

.... Then all the informations from a user, it was like a wp_user but not a wp_user object. I have tried to reproduce the bug but no way to do it, maybe i had a particular case.. Sorry i think it's ok, if I encounter this issue again i will take a screenshot ;)
