WordPress Hooks Guide For Beginners

In my process of trying to learn about how WordPress works and become a WordPress Developer, I have stumbled upon the idea of hooks.

I’ve been stuck on this question for a while: What is a WordPress hook?

So I’ve put together a guide for beginners to understand hooks, because I am currently a beginner.

Here are my favorite resources for learning about WordPress Hooks:

#1: WP Shout Intro To Hooks & Filters

Read The Full Article on WPShout.com

This excellent summary is a sample chapter from the book Up and Running, which is a full course on how to become a WordPress developer.

But this one sample chapter is the clearest and most concise introduction to the concept of what hooks and filters are, and how they work.

#2: Kinsta WordPress Hooks Guide

Kinsta has the next best guide, in my opinion in their blog article.

It’s much more in-depth, and a little more technical.
