action hook(s) for post-install?

  • I have looked around in the code, on this site, and on the list on flatearth, and it appears as if there are no action hooks available for installation. I am working on a project where we will be rolling out wp with our custom plugins to a number of sites, and we would prefer it if we could also write a plugin that would perform various database tweaks immediately upon completion of the installation.

    I am proposing that an action be added for post-install, and, if possible, earlier in the installation, as soon as it is feasible to execute plugins (we’re actually using wpmu, so no need to activate the plugins)

    I would greatly appreciate any thoughts on this!

  • hmm, all of a sudden, the forum has taken away the EDIT link for my post 🙁

    I was going to amend it to say that regardless of the install being wp or wpmu, a post-install plugin should not require activation (for obvious reasons)

    Is there a better forum for this? I’m still interested in hearing people’s thoughts.

    Trac is a better locale to propose changes or additions to the code base.


    There’s also the WP-Hackers mailing list. Though it’s far more informal, it can be a good place to flesh out an idea before submitting a Trac ticket.


    Finally, as a plugin developer and occasional contributor to the core, I see every new API hook, especially those added mainly for the benefit of outside developers, as a good thing.
