Hybrid Hook

Description

Hybrid Hook is a plugin that allows end users the ability to tap into the Hybrid theme’s extensive hook selection by providing a user interface in the WordPress admin for adding custom content.

You must be using at least version 0.9 of the Hybrid theme for this plugin to work. It will also not work with any other themes.

Features:

  • Ability to add custom HTML nearly anywhere on your site.
  • Use shortcodes to quickly add content.
  • Allows the input of JavaScript.
  • User can select the priority the code will run.
  • Can execute PHP code if the option is selected.

Installation

  1. Upload hybrid-hook to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  3. Go to Appearance > Hybrid Hook to input custom content.

More detailed instructions are included in the plugin’s readme.html file.

FAQ

Why was this plugin created?

This plugin was created so that end users and non-developers could take advantage of the Hybrid theme’s extensive hook system. It allows the input of HTML, PHP, shortcodes, and JavaScript from the WordPress admin. It’s a way to work around having to learn how to use the WordPress plugin API and just add content anywhere.

How do I set it up?

Under Appearance > Hybrid Hook, you can add custom code in individual textareas. Each textarea corresponds to one of the Hybrid theme’s hooks, and each is accompanied by a priority input box and a checkbox to execute PHP.

More detailed instructions are included in the plugin’s readme.html file.
