apply_filters( "{$type}_template_hierarchy", string[] $templates )

Filters the list of template filenames that are searched for when retrieving a template to use.


The dynamic portion of the hook name, $type, refers to the filename — minus the file extension and any non-alphanumeric characters delimiting words — of the file to load.
The last element in the array should always be the fallback template for this query type.

Possible hook names include:

  • 404_template_hierarchy
  • archive_template_hierarchy
  • attachment_template_hierarchy
  • author_template_hierarchy
  • category_template_hierarchy
  • date_template_hierarchy
  • embed_template_hierarchy
  • frontpage_template_hierarchy
  • home_template_hierarchy
  • index_template_hierarchy
  • page_template_hierarchy
  • paged_template_hierarchy
  • privacypolicy_template_hierarchy
  • search_template_hierarchy
  • single_template_hierarchy
  • singular_template_hierarchy
  • tag_template_hierarchy
  • taxonomy_template_hierarchy
