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.

I was using this plugin in my website Akaka but i don't know whether this plugins helping me or not.

Great example of simple plugin
By , for WP 4.5.1

Hello Dolly isn't included with the WordPress by default because the team thinks everyone wants Hello Dolly lyrics in their admin interface! Instead, it serves as an elegant example of what a simple plugin looks like for those of us who might want to try customising WordPress ourselves.

No surprise then that my first ever plugin (created many years ago) was a modification of Hello Dolly. It's a perfect in-road to working with WordPress: it's simple, delightful, and does something we can all have a go at - adding something random but unobtrusive to the WordPress interface, making it our own. (My first try was "A Record or an OBE", which substituted the lyrics of the first theme song from The Goodies television program.)

Thanks for helping this beginner - and no doubt many more - learn to write for WordPress, Matt. I can't believe I didn't review this until now.

It's not supposed to be anything but fun...

Won't make your site run better - or worse either. The code is very light weight, very low impact. Doesn't add wonderful functionality, unless you think smiling while you plow through site maintenance is a good thing. I do. So I'm glad it's packaged with WordPress, and will add it myself if the day comes when it is not.

This is awesome
