I need to echo "hello world" in civicrm how to do this in any page in civicrm? i'm trying to do this using hooks_civicrm_post but there is no result.


The civicrm_post hook performs stuff after a database update, and does not necessarily just echo stuff on a page.

If you want to customize CiviCRM I strongly recommend you read the Developer Guide carefully, and possibly check if you can follow a CiviCRM developer training somewhere.

I assume you do not actually really want to echo "hello world" on any page, so perhaps it will help if you tell us what you really want to do?

    You can not simply echo something, what you could do is use the status messages? So something like CRM_Core_Session::setStatus(ts('Hello World', 'I am awake', 'success'); – ErikH - CiviCooP Sep 12 '17 at 14:58
  • ok but if i need to add some code where should i put it? – Hassan Abdallah Sep 12 '17 at 20:14
  • Depends at what moment you want this to happen, and I really do think you need to study CiviCRM customization and invest some time. I get the feeling from your questions you are going to do something without understanding the basics :-) – ErikH - CiviCooP Sep 13 '17 at 6:55
  • thanks, so where should i start? – Hassan Abdallah Sep 13 '17 at 9:36
