    Can someone explaine a ABC way for me on Action Hooks

    I get that we now have action hooks in the documentations but what i do not get is what do i do with them? I understand they can be used to avoid updating the theme all the time. But can someone explain from A B C what do i have to do with these hooks?


    I love to help out you out but please read this first Have you tried to install in a root domain? Have you tried to Resave permalinks? Have you tried to disable all plug in? Have you tried the default theme of Wordpress?

    I second that! Perhaps start small like how would you add a 468x60 banner code only using a hook? (or a h1 command for that matter)?

    In the wordpress it says to build a plug in to use hooks? it looks a bit over class for me. I thought it was more like place tag some place and done

    Seems your in the same boat as I am in regards to trying understand and implement hooks...I've read so much the last couple days on this subject that my eyes are starting to hurt, lol. I am considering adding a child theme as well, but am starting wonder if I even need one as I haven't modified Classipress's template at all. All my mods are function based in order fulfill business requirements, so I would think that just using hooks without a child theme may be the way to go. Yet, most everything I've read doesn't give simple direct instruction on how to use hooks, it's more like getting you understand the benefits of using them, and I do get that part of things. But I would like to know exactly how to use them in relation to implementing modifications.
