I'm looking for a list of action tags that are relevant when you:

  • create a post, with any method, so basically using wp_insert_post
  • modify a post, like changing status, title, content, terms, meta, anything related to it;
  • remove a post

Are save_post and deleted_post enough for this kind of thing?


Yes, 'save_post' and 'delete_post' cover everything, except modifying meta and terms associated to a post. Those hooks can be found in wp-includes: meta.php and taxonomy.php, respectively.

  • so the other ones would be: added_post_meta, updated_post_meta, deleted_post_meta and added_term_relationship, deleted_term_relationships ? Jul 30 '11 at 13:39
  • @One Trick Pony: Yep.
