Osclass functionality could be extended via Plugins, refer to Plugins page to know more about plugins, this page is about to create them.
Plugins files structure
Each plugins should consist in one plugin folder, you can call it whatever you want, and one index.php file at least. You could add several files and libraries. Plugins use Hooks to trigger functions at several places of the Osclass code.
Making a plugin installable
To make a plugin installable you should put this function at the end of the index.php
osc_register_plugin(osc_plugin_path(__FILE__), 'custom_function_call_after_install') ;
Usage of hooks
To use a hook add the following code to your plugin file :
Substitute ‘hook_name’ by the name of the hook you want to attach ‘function_name’, and ‘function_name’ with the name of your function.
There exists some special hooks
This is a hack to show a Configure link at plugins table (you could also use some other hook to show a custom option panel);
osc_add_hook(osc_plugin_path(__FILE__) . "_configure", 'function_name');
This is a hack to show a Uninstall link at plugins table (you could also use some other hook to show a custom option panel);
osc_add_hook(osc_plugin_path(__FILE__) . "_uninstall", 'function_name');
List of Hooks
Here’s a detailed list of Hooks explaining when they are triggered and which arguments are passed to the target funtions.
