  • [Forum] Template Hooks

    I was getting ready to add some links to the navbar when I noticed template_hook.navbar_community_menu_end And thought using that would be a lot better.

    How do I use this template hook.navbar_community_menu_end? I immediately thought plugin but that doesn't appear to be where you setup hooks for the template.

    Your immediate thought was correct. You would write a plugin to use the template_hook. Something like:

    hook_location: process_templates_complete
    PHP Code:
    $template_hook['navbar_community_menu_end'] .= '<li><a href="yourlink.php">Your Link</a></li>'

        Is "process_templates_complete" the hook that should be used for all of these types of things? I'm trying to do something similar with the "postbit_userinfo_right_after_posts" hook (to add in custom fields), but I can't get it to work even with a static string.

        EDIT: Nevermind, I got it working with "postbit_display_start".
