I'm looking to insert a string of JavaScript variables AFTER the in_footer enqueued scripts. When I write the string via the wp_footer hook, they occur before the in_footer scripts. Is there another hook I can tie into that happens after those enqueued scripts have been written.

    What priorities have you tried on the hook? I think if you just dump the priority out (or maybe put it real high...one of the two, I never remember) it should adjust where it falls in relation to the enqueue.

If you change the priority on the hook to wp_footer you should be able to shift when it's called in reference to the enqueue functions.


add_action('wp_footer', 'my_footer_hook', PHP_INT_MAX);

There's also the shutdown hook that runs last just before wp_cache_close();, but you should run the filters only until a priority of 9.

Another option would be to hook with a priority as high as possible for e.g. 9999 into the hook (priority is the 3rd arg).
