Method, Action, Hook Documentation. Is there anybody out there?

  • timatooth


    Hi everyone,

    Im new to the worldpress plugin scene coming from a more oop like language like java that uses JavaDoc or Doxygen to describe stuff.

    I was wondering how developers writing plugins are finding the hooks/actions/filters they need to solve something. I haven’t found very helpful because its seems to only document a small collection of functions.

    I haven’t found it easy because IDEs don’t tend to detect functional apis with their code completion engines. Is it just a matter of slowly grinding through all the core files trying to memorize all the functions and callbacks? I hope not.

    This page has a lot of actions you can use.

    And this page has a lot of filters you can use.



    Thanks Lynq! I should have stated clearer that I’m looking for more bbPress actions/hooks/filters pages. Are there pages like this for bbPress the page on Actions only describes 10 actions. seems to have articles about some functions and shortcodes but not hooks and filters.

    It would be nice to see a table which contains every action/hook/filter/callback with the argument descriptions or what parameters the callbacks get. Currently Ive been trying to decipher the inline documentation of the core files. 😀



    All I can see at the moment is this:

    I think the documentation is continually being worked on, but I believe the focus is more on the actual plugin at the moment, correct me if I am wrong anyone.

    If you do find a list of great actions and hooks then share them! All it takes is for one person to go through, use them and help others out by posting their findings.

    Good luck!
