Howdy 👋😊

If you have ever wanted to change the word “Howdy” in your WordPress Admin bar (the black bar at the top of your website that can be seen once you have logged in),  there are a couple of ways you can do this.

 


  1. Use a plugin from the WordPress.org repository.
  2. Use some custom code – recommended to use with a customization plugin – (an example of a customization plugin. You can also use add this to your functions.php file but this is no longer recommended.
