Excellent Plugin. I’ve been using this plugin for some time now. I replace the boring Howdy message with ‘I AM BLESSED WITH – (name of the website). So each time I look at it, my success rates are blessed. Easy to use and effective. So long as the updates are kept up I’ll donate soon. Will be setting up a donations acct to help those who have helped me with my websites. Thanks Mike Hickcox keep it up!
