Does this plugin have hooks (filters) ?

Yes, there is one filter: ptags/option which contains all the data saved by the plugin in an array which is stored in a single option.

You can use the code below to preset your favorite configuration (used “Hello Dolly” plugin as example):

// Change plugin tags config
add_filter( 'ptags/option', 'my_ptags_option' );
function my_ptags_option( $option ) {

    // Get current plugins & tags data
    $plugins = isset( $option['plugins'] ) ? $option['plugins'] : array();
    $tags    = isset( $option['tags'] ) ? $option['tags'] : array();

    // Edit plugins data
    $plugins = wp_parse_args(

            // Plugin slug
            'hello-dolly' => array(
                'tag'   => __( 'To delete' ), // Tag text displayed next to the plugin version
                'color' => 1, // User preference schematic colors, from 1 to 4+

            // ... add more by duplicating lines above


    // Edit tags data
    $tags = wp_parse_args(

            // Filter text (should be same tag text as above)
            'To delete' => array(
                'view' => 1, // Boolean setting to display filter above plugins list

            // ... add more by duplicating lines above


    // We merge it with current data
    $new_option = wp_parse_args( array( 'plugins' => $plugins, 'tags' => $tags ), $option );

    // Return the new option
    return $new_option;

💡 If you have no idea where to put this code, add it at the end of your functions.php which is in your theme folder.

Can i customize the look of tags?

Yes you can and it’s fairly simple because this plugin CSS stylesheet use CSS variables.
Just add the code below in a CSS stylesheet loaded in the admin & customize values as you pleased:

:root {
    --plugin-tag-color: #fff; // Tag text color
    --plugin-tag-pad: 0 7px; // Tag padding
    --plugin-tag-rad: 3px; // Tag border radius
    --plugin-tag-fs: .75rem; // Tag font-size
    --plugin-tag-bg: #bbb; // Tag background color
