Still displays "Howdy, "

WordPress 3.3


Custom Admin Text

Replacing: “Howdy, “

“Howdy, ” still shows in Network Admin screen.

Also still shows for user logins on main site.

It shows properly when user enters profile.

Inconsistent… not working properly.

Help? Thanks.

    Hi Jaybe,

    I’ve just tested that once again on a test Multisite and am able to see the change. Could you please provide a screenshot of the settings you have for the change?

    I’m not quite sure what you mean about the login. Do you mean in the front-end of your site? The plugin isn’t made for changing front-end text if that’s the case.

    Yes; referring to front end admin bar users see while logged in and navigating the front-end of the site.

    Users are seeing “Howdy, ” despite text changing it to something else.

    The change does occur when entering admin mode/profile.

    Unfortunate it does not apply to global admin header across site. Possibility?

    Greetings Jaybe :slight_smile:

    I managed to get all the admin bar effects I want to include the “Howdy” changed consistently using Dashboard Tweaks from the WP repository :slight_smile:

    It does require a little coding but it was simple enough and I had it going as I wanted within five minutes :slight_smile:
