This hook provides no parameters. You use this hook by having your function echo output to the browser, or by having it perform background tasks. Your functions shouldn’t return, and shouldn’t take any parameters.

add_action( 'appthemes_before_header', 'your_function' );

Example: Advertisment

This code would display an AppThemes banner advertisement above the content of every page.

function insert_banner_ad_before_page() { 
    echo '<a href=""><img src=""></a>';
add_action( 'appthemes_before_header', 'insert_banner_ad_before_page' ); 

Example: Adding an Announcement Bar

You can insert special information for the user about a sale, upcoming event, or other notification here.

function sale_annoucement() { 
    echo '<div class="annoucement">' . __('Come back July 5th for 10% off everything!', 'appthemes') . '</div>';
add_action( 'appthemes_before_header', 'sale_annoucement' );
