[resolved] Attention Mods, Admins, Developers - Registration Hook Help Please (5 posts)

    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.
    Thanks

    Apologies to you for being "fussed at".

    Sometimes it is hard to get a clear answer here, and as Sam said moderators (at least this one) don't have all the answers.

    With that being said maybe this thread will provide some insight:

    And a list of plugin related Codex articles:

    Also you might consider joining the wp-hackers list, as there are some interesting topics at times.

    Good luck.
