    I like this plug-in a lot too and appreciate it! I think it's a great shortcut and easy to master.

    However, I agree with Farscape that it would be nice to have the ability to indicate if you want to add something to all pages or just posts.

    There are times that you might want to limit something to post pages or just regular pages. Any good hacks for that?

    Great resource, thanks.
    I was looking for ways to find out if the current page being displayed is a 404 page or not. I have some footer and headers which should not being included in the 404 page.
    Thanks for your help

    Thanks for the video on using openhook, I just bought thesis theme for one of my sites and its definitely challenging learning all this css but i know in a month or so my site is going to look awesome.

    As a plugin, OpenHook is not something “Thesis” (DIY Themes) can guarantee will work or upgrade alongside Thesis, and there have been a few recent issues reported with Openhook, though there are workarounds.” So now I’m really confused about hooks

  • Pamela Rose Anders

    I was looking for a way to customize my home page (and certain other pages) in my Thesis site.  I came across your plugin and installed it, but I don’t see a way to apply it to specific pages rather than the entire site. I am afraid to use it until I am able to figure that out, because  I don’t want to risk causing damage to the site.

    Sorry if this appears to be a lame comment, but I am a novice to WordPress and Thesis.

    I accidentally deleted the code in the Header box of Thesis OpenHook, and now my site is messed up. Is there a back up somewhere of the code, or an ‘undo’ function, or ‘restore’ function somewhere? Can’t find any code online, either, nor in the WordPress support blogs.

    I just installed thesis hook in my thesis theme. It’s really amazing in positioning adsense ads within thesis. However, I want to exclude the sitemap from displaying the adsense ads. How can I do that?

    I’m using the WP Realtime Sitemap wordpress plugin to generate an html sitemap. Here is a for reference:

    It’s a great sitemap generator. I hope there is a way to exclude the sitemap from displaying ads.

    I’m using a hook now that displays some HTML, however I only want it to display on certain pages, something like if_catagory=recipes.  What code could I use for this?
