Is there a way in which I can output some code in the header and choose it's location? some where like wp function add_admin_menu (where you can choose the placement).

  • What do you mean by output some code and what location? Are you talking about the backend (admin) view or frontend view?

  • had to break them up into two questions, don't know why the first one was closed :-(. seems its the consensus on here that if you know what you're looking for you ask a question so that someone can tell you what you already know) This ain't a place for people who are just starting out with Wordpress to further their career!

    First, when writing a comment addressed to a certain user, use the ´@username` function, in my case just write @tf in your comment. To your question, wp_head is not the right hook. Try wp_print_scripts instead. Anyway, what are you trying to do? Do you want to output some link to a CSS or JavaScript file? Please use the wp_enqueue_style and wp_enqueue_script functions for that. If it it still not what you want -> output buffer and filter wp_head...?

Okay, here is a working example of what you (might) want to do.

Put the following in your functions.php:

add_action('wp_head', 'my_jquery_code', 999999999);
function my_jquery_code() {
    $jquery_code = <<<JQUERY
    // jQuery code goes here...
    echo $jquery_code.PHP_EOL;
} // function my_jquery_code
