# Migrating Themes with Hooks

Elementor Pro Intermediate

In this example, we'll add Elementor locations to the original theme using hooks. After migration, the theme will look as follows:

# Themes Files

The new function.php file:

<?php
// Register Elementor locations
function theme_prefix_register_elementor_locations( $elementor_theme_manager ) {
	$elementor_theme_manager->register_location(
		'header',
		[
			'hook' => 'theme_prefix_header',
			'remove_hooks' => [ 'theme_prefix_print_elementor_header' ],
		]
	);
	$elementor_theme_manager->register_location(
		'footer',
		[
			'hook' => 'theme_prefix_footer',
			'remove_hooks' => [ 'theme_prefix_print_elementor_footer' ],
		]
	);
	$elementor_theme_manager->register_location(
		'single',
		[
			'hook' => 'theme_prefix_single',
			'remove_hooks' => [ 'theme_prefix_print_elementor_single' ],
		]
	);
	$elementor_theme_manager->register_location(
		'archive',
		[
			'hook' => 'theme_prefix_archive',
			'remove_hooks' => [ 'theme_prefix_print_elementor_archive' ],
		]
	);
}
add_action( 'elementor/theme/register_locations', 'theme_prefix_register_elementor_locations' );

// Theme header
function theme_prefix_print_elementor_header() {
	get_template_part( 'templates-parts/header' );
}
add_action( 'theme_prefix_header', 'theme_prefix_print_elementor_header' );

// Theme footer
function theme_prefix_print_elementor_footer() {
	get_template_part( 'templates-parts/footer' );
}
add_action( 'theme_prefix_footer', 'theme_prefix_print_elementor_footer' );

// Single page
function theme_prefix_print_elementor_single() {
	get_template_part( 'templates-parts/single' );
}
add_action( 'theme_prefix_single', 'theme_prefix_print_elementor_single' );

// Archive page
function theme_prefix_print_elementor_archive() {
	get_template_part( 'templates-parts/archive' );
}
add_action( 'theme_prefix_archive', 'theme_prefix_print_elementor_archive' );
