Hello Kurt


A plugin for all those nineties’ lovers who just don’t feel to much identified by Hello Dolly. When activated you will randomly see a lyric from Smells Like Teen Spirit in the upper right of your admin screen on every page.

Initial credits go to Matt Mullenweg, since the code of this plugin was initially based on his Hello Dolly.


This plugin offers hooks for filters, so you can modify its functionality or add your own.

  • hello_kurt_css: Modify the CSS that the plugin outputs.
  • hello_kurt_lyrics: Modify the lyrics that the plugin uses.
  • hello_kurt_random_line: Modify the random line to be printed.



  • Object oriented code.
  • New filter hooks.
