I'm a new comer to wordpress and also have been attempting to create my very own wordpress plugin.

I'm attempting to call back a function by utilizing add_action hook. I wish to know how can i get listing of all occasions you can use to invoke the function as well as i wish to know can one configure my very own event?

If so where shall i actually do that?

Thanks ahead of time .

Here's in which the actions are described within the codex, having a simple example
