In the top right of the admin bar in the WordPress admin, it says Howdy and then your name. I’ve never really paid much attention to it except when I want to log out and having nothing against the word Howdy, but some people want to change that text to say something else.
Here are some plugins that will allow you to do that.
- CJ Change Howdy – this plugin adds an option under settings that allows you to change the word Howdy to anything that you want.
- Sk Replace Howdy – another plugin that allows you to change Howdy to any text that you would like. This one doesn’t have it’s own settings page – a field is added under Settings > General.
- TM Replace Howdy – this one adds a list of randomly changing phrases that replace the word Howdy. You can limit it to professional greetings. You can also add your own phrase or even your own randomly changing list of greetings.
- Edit Howdy – This is another plugin that will allow you to change Howdy to anything that you would like.
- Howdy Tweaks – with this one you can change the howdy text and add a list of favorite links next to it.
- Better Howdy – changes Howdy to Logged in As.
Does the howdy text bother you? Do you even notice it?
