do_action( 'template_redirect' )
Fires before determining which template to load.
- This action hook executes just before WordPress determines which template page to load. It is a good hook to use if you need to do a redirect with full knowledge of the content that has been queried.
- Loading a different template is not a good use of this action hook. If you include another template and then use
die()), no subsequent template_redirect hooks will be run, which could break the site’s functionality. Instead, use the
template_includefilter hook to return the path to the new template you want to use. This will allow an alternative template to be used without interfering with the WordPress loading process.
