Modules (plugins) and hooks

A module is a type of plugin that runs in ProcessWire, and they come in many flavors. At its core, ProcessWire is a platform for executing modules, and much ProcessWire is built upon these modules. Hooks enable you to intercept and modify events in ProcessWire and can be used both inside and outside of modules.

  • Module types

  • Using hooks

    ProcessWire contains many methods that you may easily hook in order to modify the behavior of the method. Hooks can also be used to add new methods to existing classes.

“Indeed, if ProcessWire can be considered as a CMS in its own right, it also offers all the advantages of a CMF (Content Management Framework). Unlike other solutions, the programmer is not forced to follow the proposed model and can integrate his/her ways of doing things.” —Guy Verville, Spiria Digital Inc.
