Actions are a way to execute code at a given point in time throughout the lifecyle of your WordPress website.

Action Example

Let's say we want to log every post indexing task.


function mb_log_posts_index_updated( $post ) {
    $log = print_r( $post->to_array(), true );
    file_put_contents( '../mb_logs.txt', $log, FILE_APPEND );

add_action( 'algolia_posts_index_post_updated', 'mb_log_post_index_updated' );

Note that an action does not need to return anything. If it does, it will be ignored anyway.

In this example, we would log an array representation of the post that has been re-indexed.
