How to install a hook

Detailed instructions on how to install a hook.

Posted by Michael on Jun 24 2009 09:22 PM
This is a detailed tutorial on how to install a hook. Some other hooks may require additional steps, so always check the readme/instructions files provided when you download a hook. For the purposes of this tutorial, I'll be using the Guest Message hook as an example.

Step One
Download the hook and unzip it's contents into a folder on your desktop. Most hook will have a basic folder structure like this. Where the hook xml file is usually in the root folder along with the readme or instructions file. Some hooks may have additional contents that needs to be uploaded such as the Guest Message hook, so check with the hooks readme/instructions file for additional instructions.

  • You'll need the latest version of the IPB 3.0.x series.
  • Zip program to unzip the applications contents, most hooks will be zipped. A good free one is 7-zip.
