WordPress action hooks and how to define them in example

WordPress custom action hooks are super easy to define.

Just in your theme, plugin or whatever you need to set your new custom action like:

do_action('your_new_action_name', $parameter)

This is all the “hard job” you need to do. Nothing more, but it cannot be done for less, unless you do not need the $parameter

In order to use the action hooks you can refer to already created article.

Here is the simple use of your_new_action_name hook.

function shoot_clay_pigeons($parameter) {
// some work in here
