Better Howdy


Remove and restructure the ‘Howdy’ line. Props to Ozh for No Howdy.

People have always seemed to complain about the ‘Howdy’ on the admin pages. I personally don’t care about the use of the word but think that the ‘Howdy area’ could be more functional and user friendly.


  1. Just activate and enjoy! No configuration required.


  1. Upload the better-howdy folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
