Can someone from WordPress please explain better how to use register_activation_hook? I have tried unsuccessfully as many have to get help with it but instead was fussed at by a mod. In the time it takes someone to type out a reprimand, they could have very well offered some help.
Just doing a search for register_activation_hook brings up numerous thread here and on Google. The threads here have mostly gone unanswered for months with no replies. Obviously some people do know how to use register_activation_hook or some other function to add and modify table structure to the database because there are plugins that do it already. Is it that big of a secret that someone cannot update the documentation? There are people like me who want to create plugins but get stuck here and can't get help. It's obviously a problem otherwise there would not be so many threads on the topic.
I hope to get some help for me and others who cannot get this to work.
