Replace “Howdy” in Admin Bar

In this case, we’re replacing ‘howdy’ with ‘Logged In as’.  Add to functions.php file.

function replace_howdy( $wp_admin_bar ) {
    $my_account=$wp_admin_bar->get_node('my-account');
    $newtitle = str_replace( 'Howdy,', 'Logged In as', $my_account->title );            
    $wp_admin_bar->add_node( array(
        'id' => 'my-account',
        'title' => $newtitle,
    ) );
}
add_filter( 'admin_bar_menu', 'replace_howdy',25 );

 

Dave Winter focuses in WordPress UI Design and WordPress Plugin Development (some have labelled him a fanatic) but has hands in many other projects, including photography and music. He's never far from a computer... or an iPad (for testing purposes, of course). If you've been to a WordCamp in Southern California, he probably already knows who you are (or maybe not - he's terrible with names). Dave currently teaches courses at California State University, Long Beach alongside his small business at dauid.us (and his students think he's pretty boss).
