Change WordPress “Howdy” text without any plugins or code

Today I will share how you can easily change the word “Howdy” in WordPress. Many use the plugin crane to change the “Howdy” text, while others use the function.php extra code. But today I will show you how to easily change the text “Howdy” without any plugin or code. Just replace “Howdy” with whatever you want. Such as HI, Hello, or Welcome.

Then see how to replace “Howdy”.

First, you go to your Hosting Panel with a file manager or FTP.

Then open your wp-includes folder

Now open the admin bar.php file and look at line 197

$ howdy = sprintf (__ (‘Howdy,% 1 $ s’), $ current_user-> display_name);

Change what you want

$ howdy = sprintf (__ (‘Hi,% 1 $ s’), $ current_user-> display_name);

Note: You must back up the admin bar.php file before editing
