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.

But what IS Hello Dolly" What does it do?
By , for WP 4.1

I've used WordPress for years but I still don't know what "Hello Dolly" does? Or is it perhaps a harmless inside joke?

I don't really care because it doesn't much bother me on the rare occasion "Hello Dolly" shows up. I would appreciate knowing now that it's an issue. Aloha from Honolulu.

Those who create have a right to shape it the way they want it

Leave Hello Dolly alone. Disabling it is not hard work and puts many smiles on people's faces. Democracy respects the creators but gives options for people to opt out where there is no harm either way. Enjoy or disable that is not a bad choice, is it?

This plugin HAS a purpose... for some of us

I think Hello Dolly is the Hello World of WordPress plugins, a short, cursory introduction to writing more complicated WP plugins. So really, it's more intended towards potential plugin developers than toward the average joe.

If you don't like it, there's no need to get so inflamed about its presence. Just remove it!

A simple reminder for me.. "There is hope."
