Detailed instructions on how to install a hook.
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.

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.
