I'm just trying to get my head around the "life-cycle" of a typical page request in WordPress. The Action Reference page lists 38 actions that occur during a typical page load, but two things aren't clear to me:
- does functions.php get invoked before any of the hooks are executed?
- does the framework call your "page.php", etc., somewhere within the sequence of hooks, or after all hooks have been executed?
(apologies if my terminology is a little off, but I believe I understand the idea behind hooks being made available by the framework, and actions being associated with these hooks by the theme author)
