If you aren’t altogether comfortable with editing PHP files to customize your site, OpenHook is for you! An increasing number of themes & plugins come equipped with a myriad of hooks — points within their code which can receive user customizations, known as actions — which can be customized from within your WordPress admin panel using OpenHook!
- Customize the hooks present in your favorite themes!
- Define any hook you want within OpenHook and add an action to it! In addition to the themes which OpenHook supports explicitly, you can now use OpenHook to customize ANY hook (even something as arcane as
theme_hook_before_meta_987) in ANY theme or plugin that has ANY hooks, from WordPress’ bare minimum hooks to hooks that are dynamically created and are as infinitely diverse as your site can be!
- Predefined hooks for Astra, the world’s most popular non-default WordPress theme!

- OpenBox, a PHP-friendly “box” for Thesis 2
- Quick access to the header & footer hooks of WordPress
