  • Andreas Lopez: Basics of PHP: Action and Filter Hooks

    WordCamp Miami 2018Speaker: Andreas Lopez

    January 22, 2019 — You don’t need to be an established developer – this is an Intro talk into PHP. Hooks are a great way to see immediate advantage of learning and using custom PHP.

    Hooks are one of two things:

    Action Functions (add, edit or remove functionality)
    Filter Functions (modify output)

    Both of these are native to WordPress Core and are also created by Plugin developers to help you – a fellow developer – out. Learn how to use these powerful tools to your own advantage for customization and getting the results you want.

    This is a Lightning Talk so it will be limited to the core concept itself and you will see up to three practical examples of an action and filter respectively.
    You will walk away with the knowledge of how to find these hooks within a plugin or WordPress core and have the confidence to experiment with these.
