Hooks: Action and Filter reference


Hooks are provided by WordPress and Easy Property Listings to allow your plugin or theme to ‘hook into’ the code; that is, to call functions in your plugin at specific times, and thereby set your plugin in motion.

We recommend you use download and customise the  epl-filters.zip plugin to store your modifications. This allows you to update the EPL plugin and retain your custom changes. You can also re-use your customisations on other websites you build too, saving a heap of time with endless flexibility.

There are two kinds of hooks:

  1. Actions: Actions are the hooks that the WordPress core launches at specific points during execution, or when specific events occur. 
  2. Filters: Filters are the hooks that WordPress launches to modify text of various types before adding it to the database or sending it to the browser screen. 

For examples see:  actions and filters
