  • Damien Carbery: Demystifying Hooks, Actions and Filters

    WordCamp Belfast 2018Speaker: Damien Carbery

    April 17, 2019 — Hooks and filters are critical part of WordPress.

    They are used by the core product and they are what theme and plugin developers use to provide the massive range of add-ons for WordPress.

    They are easy to use and let you access the internals of WordPress.

  • Mark Wilkinson: A deep understanding of WordPress actions and filters

    WordCamp Edinburgh 2017Speaker: Mark Wilkinson

    April 3, 2019 — WordPress is known for its extensibility – the ability to change the behaviour of the software without breaking the core code. This is added through plugins and themes.

    Understanding how to extend WordPress is essential if you want to develop solutions using WordPress. This talk will teach you how actions and filters work, with some practical and theoretical examples to illustrate their functionality.

    Attendees should hopefully come away from this talk with a greater understanding on how actions and filters, or hooks as they are collectively known, can unlock the door to building greater things with WordPress, and as I worked out being able to say “Wow, you can do (almost) anything with WordPress!”.

  • Robert Gillmer: Actions and Filters

    WordCamp Las Vegas 2015Speaker: Robert Gillmer

    February 20, 2016 — Hooks are one thing which intermediate programmers struggle with the most. Mastering actions and filters will elevate intermediate developers to advanced ones. However, much of the documentation about hooks are hard to understand, and the standard examples are insufficient. I’m a big fan of putting a different spin on lectures and using analogies which no one else has in order to make things more understandable. I explain the difference between the two by drawing a parallel to a shopping trip. Filters are when my wife calls me to ask me to pick something new up from the store I’m going to; actions are when she asks me to go to a completely different store. I then go into how to use hooks from a developer side – add_action and add_filter – as well as how to use them from a “builder” side – apply_filters and do_action.

    WordCamp Berlin 2015Speaker: Monika Thon-Soun

    February 7, 2016 — Es gibt Standard Hooks/Actions in den Themes. Es gibt viele Themes, die sehr viele Hooks anbieten und es gibt immer noch eine Gruppierung, die diese Hooks verallgemeinern mag und es gibt WP-Theme EntwicklerInnen, die dies total ablehnen. Vor-Nachteile. Diskussionsgrundlage. Meinungsbildung.

  • Frank Staude: Hooks, Filter, Actions – Was zum Geier ist das?

    WordCamp Cologne 2015Speaker: Frank Staude

    February 1, 2016 — Nicht „Was die Welt im Innersten zusammenhält“, sondern was uns WordPress möglichst weit öffnet, das sind die Hooks. Egal ob Theme oder Plugin, um etwas in WordPress zu ändern, zu erweitern, umzubauen und das ohne dass man direkt im WordPress Code ändert, dazu muss man verstehen was Hooks sind und wie diese Funktionieren. Egal ob man ein komplexes Plugin bauen möchte oder nur in seinem verwendeten Theme z.B. den Titel der Beiträge manipulieren möchte.

    WordCamp Toronto 2015Speaker: Brian Hogg

    January 19, 2016 — Good plugins provide actions and filters to allow others (like you!) to modify some of their functionality without having to either create a whole new plugin from scratch or hack away at the original plugin, losing your changes when that plugin gets updated down the road.

    Learning Outcomes:

    Know what actions and filters are, and how they can be used.
