  • Is that why you rated it five stars?

    It’s a very small plugin.

    It was included in WordPress for as long as it supported plugins, and is used as a simple demonstration of how a WordPress plugin can add functionality to the WordPress code.

    <?php
    /**
    * @package Hello_Dolly
    * @version 1.7.2
    */
    /*
    Plugin Name: Hello Dolly
    Plugin URI: http://wordpress.org/plugins/hello-dolly/
    Description: 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 <cite>Hello, Dolly</cite> in the upper right of your admin screen on every page.

    Well, hello, Dolly
    It’s so nice to have you back where you belong
    You’re lookin’ swell, Dolly
    I can tell, Dolly
    You’re still glowin’, you’re still crowin’
    You’re still goin’ strong
    I feel the room swayin’
    While the band’s playin’
    One of our old favorite songs from way back when
    So, take her wrap, fellas
    Dolly, never go away again
