DW Admin Footer


DW Admin Footer allows you to change the default WordPress footer text to something more suitable.
My plugin, DW Admin Footer lets you customise you WordPress installation that little bit more.
Only the site Administrators are able to update this text and it is shown to everyone who uses the
backend of your WordPress installation.
