As a WordPress developer, you’ve probably been using actions and filters for a while in your plugins and themes. Being able to affect the way core works without actually changing core code is what makes WordPress so extendable and customizable.
When you assign a function to an action, what actually happens behind the scenes? How does WordPress know which functions are hooked where? In this session, we’ll be taking an in-depth look at how actions and filters work in WordPress core.
We’ll also examine a few particular hooks in detail, to demonstrate some more complex implementations of actions and filters in core.
Lastly, we’ll cover how to make your own actions and filters, and you’ll learn when and why to make them in the first place.
