I tried by making a class in framework and by including this in my wordpress site, but in vain..

Any helpful idea is greatly appreciated..


Wordpress doesn't use PHP session ($_SESSION). If you want to use it you need to do at your own. For example:

add_action('init', 'wpse_session_start', 1);
function wpse_session_start() {
    if(!session_id()) {

But, if you want is to get the user id of the current user, you can use get_current_user_id():

<?php $user_ID = get_current_user_id(); ?>

  • but, if i am setting session something like, $_SESSION['myUserIdFromFramework'] from framework while user is getting login there, how do i get this in wordpress, i am entirely new to wordpress, i don't even know that, this type of functionality is possible in wordpress or not, i am sure that Facebook allows this if we are using their API. – Irfan Ahmed Apr 30 '14 at 15:40
