Book module is shown in the example, but it no longer implements hook_init().

dblog.module does, to add CSS, but i suspect it's not following best practice.

Should dblog instead be using '#attached' to add CSS to its page's render array?

And if adding CSS and JS no longer a recommended use for hook_init(), is there another example out there? locale or overlay module perhaps?

Title:Documentation problem with hook_init: what's the recommendation for conditional CSS?Clean up hook_init() and hook_boot() doc
Issue tags:-CSS, -stylesheets, -dgd7, -best practices

Let's keep this issue as related to documentation only. File a separate issue to ask about what dblog should be doing.

I agree, the example in hook_init() is bad.
http://api.drupal.org/api/drupal/modules--system--system.api.php/functio...
The CSS is now being added by the book.info file I think.

The doc for hook_init() has some other problems too, which we should fix, such as that the first line should be one sentence, and hook_boot() should have () after it to make it into a link. hook_boot() is also lame in the same way, and both have grammar issues.

It appears that there are several example implementations of hook_init() and hook_boot() on api.drupal.org, so we should be able to come up with better examples.

It looks like someone changed the example in hook_init() already. How are all of these documentation issues getting fixed without getting into the documentation queue??? I looked at 3 issues just now that had all been fixed. Mysterious.

Anyway, there were still some cleanup issues for these two hooks, so here is a patch.

The cleanup is good and the patch applies fine!

The last submitted patch, 1008250.patch, failed testing.

That failure is bogus. Doc-only patch causing fatal error?

#2: 1008250.patch queued for re-testing.

Version:7.x-dev» 8.x-dev

At this point, this is d8 material. Hopefully that will launch a retest.

+ * hook_init() instead. Thats the usual case. If you implement this hook

This needs to be "That's" or (better) "That is".

Other than that, the patch will need to be rerolled in the new format. This looks like a reroll a novice could handle.
