    Hi Guys,

    I read as much as I could about hooks in whm and specially I would need to add my own hook after an account has been created.

    It was very easy to set up a post script hook by simply creating the
    Code:
    /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/postwwwacct
    file and this works perfectly but now here is the problem I'm facing:

    I have some custom input fields in the
    Code:
    /local/cpanel/whostmgr/docroot/templates/createacct.tmpl
    file and I would need to access those input values from the hook script but unfortunately the only variables that get forwarded to the hook script are:
    cPanel & WHM Script Hooks

    I also saw that there are Standardized Hooks but unfortunately we only have WHM 11.30 and the standardized hooks have been only introduced in 11.32 so I can't test that too so my question would be:

    Can I access custom POST variables from a script or standardized hook and if so what would be the best way to do it.

    Thanks in advance!

    Yes, I think it is. The two topics don't really have anything to do with eachother. One is to add custom fields to a template without modifying the template and the other is about using those custom fields from a hook. I managed to do the first by modifying the template (as I haven't found any way to set the custom_fields from outside the template file let say from another hook or API) but now even if I have my fields set into the template file I can't access them from the hooks so I think this is a totally different matter/question.
