#10232 closed enhancement (invalid)

Add new hooks called after template parts are loaded

At this moment functions get_header() and other similar ones do actions get_header, etc. at the beginning. I have changed them (see attached patch) to also do post_get_header, etc. actions at the end.

In particular I need post_get_sidebar action for my plugin, to distinguish cases when loop_start/loop_end actions are called for main post list from these in sidebar widgets.

use the loop_start and loop_end hooks.

#2 @Denis-de-Bernardy

in them, verify that wp_query === wp_the_query. if true you're in the main loop.

sirzooro: Do you have any objections to the idea of using loop_start? Do you have a specific use which would make sense for extra hooks? (If so, reopen)

#4 @Denis-de-Bernardy

My understanding of his report is he's love to use loop_start/loop_end, but didn't know how to check whether we're in the main loop or not. Maybe we should document this somewhere in the codex or the php docs.

@Denis: you are right. I will check your suggestion later today. Hope it will work as expected :)

I have checked following code but it does not work as expected - test string was displayed above posts and above entries in recent post list. Could you check this?

function loop_start_handler() {
    global $wp_query, $wp_the_query;
    if ( $wp_query === $wp_the_query ) {
        echo '<p style="color:red">TEST</p>';

#7 @Denis-de-Bernardy

try this instead:

function loop_start_handler(&$wp_query) {
    global $wp_the_query;
    if ( $wp_query === $wp_the_query ) {
        echo '<p style="color:red">TEST</p>';

I've a few plugins that look for the main loop only, and it's working great on my end.
