Prioritize Hooks

Description

Prioritize Hooks allows the overriding of the priority of various filters and actions hooked by plugins and themes.
A list of non-core actions and filters registered before the admin_init action will be shown in the
Prioritize Hooks settings page, with the option of overriding the priority of any that you should so wish. At the moment,
the hook cannot be changed, just the priority of that callback within its respective hook. Note that priorities will not
be overridden until the wp_loaded action is run. To disabled a hook, use hyphen(-) as the priority.
Leave a priority blank to reset it.

FAQ

Can I override hooks registered after admin_init?

No, not through the settings page. However, the plugin is written in a way that allows for a theme/plugin to call on the overriding functionality at any time.
