Digthis Show Action Hook

Plugin to help, see action hooks and filters, and what functions are hooked to them

Ever had that feeling where you hook into and action or a filter and for some reason your code isn’t working? well 9 / 10 the reason is your hook is in a lower priority(in case of filters) and it can simply be determined by searching through the code for that particular filer? Seems, a tedious amount of time doesn’t it? I’ve created a plugin for just that reason but it lists all hooks and filters and allows you to search through them to see whats being hooked.

To do this i’ve used a helper class from Query Monitor where I initially saw this being used, i’ve extended it to be more user friendly.
