I am updating an old, unsupported plugin that manages my download files and their download database. It's main functionality stems from an action hook called "request." The add_action call follows:
add_action('request', array('DownloadCounter', 'download_file'));
I can't find any documentation on this hook anywhere. Do any of you good people know anything about it? Has it already been deprecated and replaced? If so, it still seems to work very nicely. Analyzing the function indicates that it intercepts and fulfills requests for wordpress pages with attached queries, for example:
I would appreciate any information you might have regarding this mysterious hook.
