Hi,

 

It would be nice if you were to develop practical how to guides on how to use the hooks editor. I think this particular feature go unused by lots of people who would probably really benefit from using it.

Hi @Martin Davies yes I've seen this document but what I mean is it would be useful to have step-by-step guide to using the Hooker plugin. This document doesn't do that.

 

For example, something that explains all the items under "add a new hook" - and how one might use them(give examples), how to use the hooks import section, etc. So in essence, far more in depth and practical enough that someone without advanced knowledge of php can use the plugin.

Hi there,

 

The hooker plugin has all the PageLines hooks in the drop down. The easiest way to find out which one you need would be to use the action map feature (this is built into the Pro Tools plugin for DMS) first. When turned on this displays all the hook locations on your live page, so you see your page with text indicators on top showing you where each hook begins and ends. You can then see on the page exactly where is best to insert the content closest to the location you want to.

 

You can then make a note of that hook, go to the hooker plugin and choose it from the drop down. In the box below insert the content you want, html, js etc. and save. You'll now see the content you entered rendered in that location on the page. You can then use css if needed to align or position the content more precisely.

Hi @James B thanks for the more thorough explanation. I still maintain that it would great if these kinds of instructional documents, courses, video, etc could be developed as a value-added item for subscribers
