TM Replace Howdy

Banish the "Howdy" greeting from the WordPress admin area with this simple to use plugin!

The Replace Howdy Plugin is designed to replace the word "Howdy" in the WordPress admin area/admin bar with something else. By default it randomly pulls from a list of several replacement words and phrases such as "Hello", "Welcome", and "Get to the choppa". The plugin also comes with a menu where you can limit it to professional sounding greetings, set a static word or phrase, or add your own list (which can be by itself or added into the default list for even more variety)!

  • You just gained +5 WordPress skills,
  • I know you are sitting at a computer,
  • Did you remember to brush your teeth,
