Could you please also considering adding hooks for downloads. This will be for when ever a front end user clicks to download a file. Such as:

	*	Used by plugin that can request user to be logged in to download file
	*	Or check if user is human
	*	Or request password
	*	Get requested file ID and perhaps the plugin will only allow a specific user to download
	*	Or allow downloads for specified blog, user level ect
	*	if $canceldownload = true it will stop the download process
	*	if $canceldownload = true user can be redirected to custom url
	function BeforeDownloadAction( $canceldownload = false, $redirect_url = 'none' )
	return true;

	*	Used by plugin that can redirect user after file download
	* 	Or display a custom message that can be targeted by user level ect
	*	User can be redirected to custom url
	function AfterDownloadAction( $redirect_url = 'none' )
	return true;

Would that work as new events:

Thanks, WidgetsBeginSettingsForm() and WidgetsEndSettingsForm() will be perfect. Thanks!

Regarding a previous request. b2evo 6.7.8 will include these new hooks:

  • SkinEndHtmlHead
  • SkinBeginHtmlBody

Updated doc page:

Regarding class questions: I'm really not a big fan of the plugins messing with the backoffice layout. So yes please make your point with a screenshot showing the problem. Thanks.

Is the dev team considering adding the download hooks?

Yes, they should already be in 6.7.8 on GitHub.

WidgetBegin and WidgetEndSettingsForm are on GitHub, but BeforeDownloadAction and AfterDownloadAction are not?

Ah see, that's what happens when you mix different requests in a single forum topic! :p

I don't understand how these hooks are supposed to work.

Can you please post a screenshot with arrows showing exactly when and where you expect those events to fire? (ideally in a similar way to the screenshot above) And give one (just one) example of what a plugin might do when the event fires?
