I am newbie in wordpress. I have just created contact us plugin for my own project.

In my plugin I have used many functions you can take a look of my code.

I want to make this plugin based on custom hooks instead of only PHP functions. I don't want simple plain php functions.

Can you suggest me where can I add custom hooks and how to use it?

I know how to add custom hooks and use it i have referred this document.. so I am clear with hooks (how to create it and use it)

Where to put hooks will depend on each project. However, some basic places to think about:

  • Shortcodes
  • Querying posts
  • Extending markup

I would recommend the article Writing Extensible Plugins With Actions and Filters. It may help you to expand your ideas.

  • Glad to help. If I answered your question, don't forget to accept the answer :-)
