Functions:sb add action

From StartBox Documentation

Jump to: navigation, search



Hooks a function created inside a class from outside the class onto a specific action.

See Hooks for a list of hooks for action. Actions are (usually) triggered when the WordPress core calls do_action().


<?php add_action( $tag, $metabox_name, $function_to_add, $priority ); ?>


(string) (required) The name of the action you wish to hook onto. (See Plugin API/Action Reference for a list of action hooks)
Default: None
(string) (required) The name of the class where the $function_to_add resides.
Default: None
(callback) (required) The name of the function you wish to be called. Note: any of the syntaxes explained in the PHP documentation for the 'callback' type are valid.
Default: None
(int) (optional) How important your function is. Alter this to make your function be called before or after other functions. The default is 10, so (for example) setting it to 5 would make it run earlier and setting it to 12 would make it run later.
Default: 10


Whether the function is removed.
  • True - The function was successfully removed.
  • False - The function could not be removed.


Simple Hook

Reposition the Analytics code to hook into header:

function child_reposition_analytics()  {
    sb_remove_action( 'wp_footer', 'sb_analytics_settings', 'output' );
    sb_add_action( 'wp_head', 'sb_analytics_settings', 'output' );
add_action('template_redirect', 'child_reposition_analytics');


You only need to use sb_add_action in place of add_action IF you are interacting with a function hooked via theme options. To determine the name of an option's containing metabox, look in /startbox/includes/admin/ for the option panel containing the option you need to alter. The classname will be the metabox name (hint: this is typically sb_SOMETHING_settings, where SOMETHING may be header, footer, analytics, etc)
