How to hook an extension to the system

Post by antonios » Mon Feb 11, 2019 11:02 am

I am trying to start using the and in the related documentation they suggest to include some code in the #__action_logs_extensions table in order to hook an extension to the system
Question is: don't know how to do this! Which is the component installation script and where does it live? (just updated to 3.9.2) How to do this so that the next realease/update of Joomla won't overwrite this piece of code?

If you want to have access to the User Action Logs, read the documentation from and make sure you have activated the plugin and set up options: ... gs_Options

If you are a PHP developer and in the process of developing your own extension, follow these instructions to hook up your extension to the action logs: ... the_system
