Edit Howdy


Note: This plugin is no longer being maintained or supported. Download and use at your own risk.

While the “Howdy” message is suitable for bloggers and casual users of WordPress, it does not fit the bill for many projects requiring WordPress to be used as a true CMS. This simple, lightweight and secure plugin allows you to change “Howdy” to whatever text you would like it to say.

This plugin was created by Thomas Griffin. Check out some of my other products, including Soliloquy – the best responsive WordPress slider plugin, Envira Gallery – the best responsive WordPress gallery plugin and OptinMonster.
