Greetings byGosh

Description

Greetings byGosh is a simple, free plugin that supplements the standard greeting “Howdy” in the WordPress admin dashboard. It displays a random greeting from around the world – the equivalent of “Hello” in 14 different languages. “Howdy” is also included in the rotation because I am fond of it, it just gets a little monotonous on its own.

Greetings byGosh has only been tested with the English language version of WordPress.

If you enjoy Greetings byGosh, please leave a review. If this plugin gives you any grief, please post on the support page. I’ll do my best to fix any problems.

FAQ

  1. That’s it? That’s all it does?

Yes. In a planned future version the list of greetings will be editable – you will be able to add to it, subtract from it, or change it out completely. For example you might prefer funny or inspirational sayings instead of greetings.
