    Not sure if this covers everything you need, but it might be a good start to cover customization!

    Thank you for your quick reply,
    is there a way I could send you a snapshot of the page to show you exactly my problem.

    A quick google search brought up this:

    Drop this in your functions.php file

    function replace_howdy( $wp_admin_bar ) {
        $newtitle = str_replace( '<my style="background-color: rgb(75, 254, 120); border: 1px solid black; border-top-left-radius: 3px; border-top-right-radius: 3px; border-bottom-right-radius: 3px; border-bottom-left-radius: 3px; font-weight: bold;">Howdy</my>,', 'Logged in as', $my_account->title );
        $wp_admin_bar->add_node( array(
            'id' => 'my-account',
            'title' => $newtitle,
        ) );
    add_filter( 'admin_bar_menu', 'replace_howdy',25 );

    There is also:

    And check the plugins section, I know there is at least two that will customize/remove the ‘Howdy’ notification all together.

    Oh wait, are you talking about the admin bar itself? This is only visible to you when you are logged into your site. It allows you to log in and out, return to your dashboard, add new posts, etcetera. Your readers can’t see it. (unless they’re logged in, and then it’s their name)



    yes thats the one, but it over laps my thesis 2.1 menu bar in my thesis dashboard so half of it is not visible.

    regards john



    I was just thinking , perhaps it could be a thesis problem.until I upgraded to 2.1 it was OK

    Regards john

    Possibly – you will likely get better info/advice about a theme-specific issue from DIYthemes – since commercial themes aren’t supported here – we don’t have access to them.
