for example, you created hook with name:



then your module must have function:


public function hook displayMyPosition($params){

//do something




remember to transplant module to this hook under modules > positions tab

Hello vekia,

thanks for the reply.

I have just created a banner module. but i dont know how to create a hook. I have followed many tutorials. but couldn't get success on this.


Can you tell me step by step process for this issue?

1) how to create hook

2) how to create unique position  for it , which will be available whenever my module will be installed.



i have written mydsiplayposition in my module.


but have not create any hook called mydisplayposition, because i dont know. i am really stuck on it.

 and i guess i have to write for example in tpl file {$HOOK_myposition} also.

I am confused.


please help me.


 thank you

you have to register a hook first in your module's install function


function install()
        if (!parent::install()
            OR !$this->registerHook('header')
            OR !$this->registerHook('footer')
            return false;
        return true;


Then you eill have to define that hooks


function hookHeader($params)
        $result = '';
        $result .= $this->_addCss('css/'.$this->name.'.css');
        $result .= $this->_addJs('js/min.js');
        $result .= $this->_addJs('js/pack.js');
        return $result;

    function hookFooter($params)
        return $this->display(__FILE__, 'views/templates/hook/'.$this->name.'.tpl');;


Now install your module and configure it. Click on manage hook at the top right corner. then click on transplant a module.

Select your module name from the drop down list of module then select displayFooter (Footer) as hook into because you have registered footer hook in your module and in the definition you have rendered the view file of your module in the footer hook. then click on save button you can see your module in footer.

but in your post you have written all predefined hooks or position.

But in my case i want to create a new position (i.e. a custom hook for my website) where i can set any module of mine or can set any downloaded module in that custom position.

hello vekia,

Thanks for the reply

 I just want my hooks to show in the drop down modules-> positions

Hook which is created by me and suppose it will show on footer area.

I can set any module in that position using the custom hook from (modules-> positions )which is created by me.


i just want to create a proper hook like prestashop already have predefined (displayRight, displayLeft etc etc).

for example my hook will be called  "mydisplayposition", which can selected from modules->positions in admin panel.


I just want my module or any module to show in my created positions, not in predefined positions which prestashop provided already.

Step 1 : Open PphMyAdmin .find your shop database and open it.


in prestashop you need to create one Row in "ps_hook" table. 



first open ps_hook table and Insert new Row and name it for example displayTop2 .



you just need to fill name and title field's.not any other values needed.
