Use Theme Hooks from functions.php

edited February 22 in Other


I would like to address the Theme Hook "mfn_hook_content_before" to display a custom content with PHP based on the WPML language.

I'm not very experienced developer, but I tried this in my child theme functions.php:

global $custom_content;

function mfn_hook_content_before( $content ) {

  $custom_content = 'Hello WordPress';

if (ICL_LANGUAGE_CODE == 'es') $custom_content = "Hola WordPress";

  $custom_content .= $content;

  return $custom_content;


add_filter( 'the_content', 'mfn_hook_content_before' );

The result prints in the content area, and not earlier in the mfn_hook_content_before area :/

Could you please tell me how to right address the Hook with PHP?

Thanks in advance,
