Yesterday, a client told me that he was sick of starring at “Howdy” in the WordPress admin interface.
He told me it made him want to punch his computer in the face.
He asked me if I could replace it with something like “Hello, Your Majesty”
After I stopped laughing and picked myself up off the floor, I coded this plugin that will change Howdy to a different, random greeting.
- Activate DirtySuds – Kill Howdy through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
- I have an idea for a new message to display
Great! I’d love to hear from you.
- Now works with Admin Bar
- Change greeting each day rather than each page load
- Cache the greeting of the day, for slightly faster loading
- First version
