Precision Targeting with Custom Action Hooks
WordPress’ powerful action-hook system makes it possible to insert functionality at any point in your theme. Most WordPress themes include some of the built-in WordPress hooks by default. For example, most of us are aware of the two most common WordPress hooks:

<link /> and
<script></script> elements, among other things.
