Hybrid Hook: WordPress Plugin

When I created the Hybrid theme framework, I wasn’t just simply creating a theme. I was adding another piece to my vision of how WordPress sites should function.

Hybrid Hook WordPress plugin

The Hybrid Hook plugin is a part of that vision. This is the type of functionality some of you have been waiting for.

What is the Hybrid Hook plugin?

I’ve talked a lot about how flexible the Hybrid theme is with action hooks and filters. Well, this is just a small sampling of what can be done without ever touching a theme file.

The plugin gives you complete access to Hybrid’s extensive hook system. Instead of mucking around in a lot of PHP code just to add a little something to your site, you can use this plugin to do it straight from your WordPress dashboard.

Take a look at a screenshot of the settings page.

You can pretty much add XHTML, PHP, and JavaScript anywhere on your site.

Plus, it uses Hybrid’s single database entry, so the plugin doesn’t add any new entries to your database at all.

More info about the plugin

Currently, the plugin is only for exclusive members of the theme club. Exclusive members can download the plugin from the Hybrid theme page.

This is an early version of the plugin. I wrote it in one sitting this morning, so it’s not as fully developed as it might be in the future.

If you run into any problems, don’t hesitate to ask on the support forums.


  1. After writting this question about hooks, I thought man It would be cool if Justin made a plugin that did this from the backend 🙂

  2. Well, I guess you got your wish. 😉

    If the plugin idea takes off with the users around here, I’ll write some more that extend Hybrid like this. I’m just kind of testing out the waters right now, so to speak.

  3. Great plugin.thanks.It makes the life much easier

    Its a great idea. Thanks.

  5. Will you put this onto http://www.wordpress.org/extend/plugins ? I know it will not make sense if you don’t use Hybrid, but the plugin update is just so much easier!

  6. I’ll add it to the plugin directory if I ever release it completely to the public and non-exclusive members.

  7. Another impressive tool to complete Hybrid! Great work Justin!!

    Really impressive tool, Justin. I’m working on my website right now, and the combination of Hybrid and the Hybrid Hook is working like a charm. Thanks!

  9. Only started using/’playing with’ Hybrid a few weeks ago. Justin, you have really done an awesome job with this theme and in particular your approach/strategy to how flexible and easily amended themes should be. Haven’t tried it yet but the Hook plugin continues with this fantastic approach to themes. Thank you!

    hey justin how are you? well i hope …

    would like to say thanks for all your efforts & was wondering does the hybrid hook eliminate the need to use the “all-in-one-seo” plugin ???

    cheers & take care
