  • [CMS] CMS hook equivalent of forumhome_start?

    When dealing with vB4 Suite versus vB4 Forum, is there an equivalent to the forumhome_start hook that is available?

    To clarify the problem... if somebody is running vB4 Forum then, just like it was in vB3, we can use forumhome_start for any plugins, such as those that might post something back back to index.php, but with vB4 Suite if somebody is using the default install of having the CMS as their home page (as defined in the new vB4 Suite version of index.php) then the same plugin that works with vB3 & vB4 Forum won't work since the post back to index.php that is relying upon forumhome_start is never executed. Ideally there would be a hook (likely a new one) that would be called in index.php in vB4 Suite prior to the including of content.php and would also be called in vB4 Forum that mimics forumhome_start. That way we could still have one plugin referencing one hook location that would work with either vB4 Forum's version of index.php (like forumhome_start does today in vB4 Forum & vB3) or vB4 Suite's version of index.php (literally right above the include of content.php).
