Hello Dolly


This is not just a plugin, it symbolizes the hope and enthusiasm of an entire generation summed up in two words sung most famously by Louis Armstrong: Hello, Dolly. When activated you will randomly see a lyric from Hello, Dolly in the upper right of your admin screen on every page.


It’s A Wonderful World

I am kind of bummed out seeing how many people are upset with this charming (damn it, I am a manly man so I don’t love using that word – but I am afraid no other adjective applies) plugin.

Relax. Smile. Very few things are that serious. (And none of those things have anything to do with WP plugins.)

Are you a dictator?

Hi matt, Please rwmove this plugin from WP core and stop it from every time install with any AP update.
Its not even a funny joke. Are you a dictator?

purpuse unclear

why every wordpress installation is just giving this by default ?
There seems no practically useful functions provided by this as far as wordpress is concerned.!!
