What Are Trellis Hooks?

Trellis has built-in Hooks functionality, which allows you to easily add scripts, meta tags, affiliate disclosures, and more to your site. With Hooks, you won't have to search for where to insert different scripts you need, and they also often eliminate the necessity to use additional code-inserting plugins as well.

You can find the Hooks settings by logging into your WordPress Admin and navigating to Appearance → Mediavine Trellis → Hooks.
