Manage MyBB plugin hooks.

This plugin adds a Hooks tab to the plugins page where you can create/delete, activate/deactivate, import/export custom hooks. This is useful in particular for small changes you want to make without creating a whole plugin file for it.

This is the counterpart for the Patches plugin. Where Patches lets you modify existing code, Hooks lets you add new code which will be executed through MyBB's hook system.

Installation instructions

  1. This plugin depends on PluginLibrary. Please download it first.
  2. Upload inc/plugins/hooks.php and inc/plugins/hooks/plugin.php and inc/languages/english/admin/hooks.lang.php

    If you are using a language other than English, you will also have to place a copy of hooks.lang.php in the folders of the other languages. Language packs may be available on the mods site.
  3. Make sure your cache/ directory is writable. This plugin creates a file called cache/hooks-plugin-data.php which contains the created / active plugin hooks.
  4. Activate the plugin


On the plugins page, there will be a new tab called 'Hooks',
which will let you create and manage hooks.

Uninstallation instructions

You can uninstall the plugin any time, however when you do so, you will lose all information about your hooks.
