Removing “Howdy” from WordPress

Again, I will start this post with the solution to the problem to save time for those just after info. If you would like a bit more background and a walkthrough of doing this via both FTP and SSH, please watch the tutorial above. Any questions or comments, let me know and I will do my best to answer accurately and quickly.

Solution: Edit the wp-includes/admin-bar.php file to change the word “Howdy,” to something like “Welcome,” or whatever you choose.
