        Custom Admin text will replace any word or group of words in the WordPress dashboard.

        Not everyone is a fan of ‘Howdy’ – some of us like to say ‘G’day’!!!

        And, some people might want to replace every mention of ‘WordPress’ with their business name

        That’s exactly what this powerful plugin does, saving you having to make, or remake, a single hack.

        Check It Out

        Simply install and activate the plugin and you’ll see a new ‘Text Change’ menu below Settings in your network admin dashboard.

        Now Super Admin users can easily change any text inside site admin dashboard as simply as adding the new text!

        For example, say you want to change Howdy to G’Day?

         It’s as simple as adding G’day!

        And presto!
