List of custom action hooks

The custom action hooks can be used to output content in specific parts of the theme on any specified context (see the Hook contexts page). The syntax of the hook name is:

tcr_{context}_{tag}

You can use any of the tags in the table below for the {tag} part of the hook name, you can find the {context} you want on the Hook contexts page. For more guidance, see the example below the table. You may want to look in header.php and footer.php to see exactly where the hooks are within the source.

body_startImmediately after the opening <body> tag

    if (function_exists('iphorm')) {
        $output = '<h2>Thanks for reading, why not subscribe for updates?</h2>';
        $output .= iphorm(2);
        return $output;
    }
}
