Changing "Howdy" can actually be done quite a bit simpler than the above code. Add this to your functions.php (or functionality.php or any other file): /** CHANGE HOWDY - **/add_filter('gettext', 'change_howdy', 10, 3);function change_howdy($translated, $text, $domain) { if (!is_admin() || 'default' != $domain) return $translated; if (false !== strpos($translated, 'Howdy')) return str_replace('Howdy', 'Welcome back', $translated); return $translated;}/** END CHANGE HOWDY **/

so basically what you're saying with the article is that the new adminbar was "pushed through" by some people who thought it great, but that little to no thought went into the consequences?

So until your solution becomes the standard I know that I will completely disable that bloody bar for all users, probably even including myself...

my idea to definitely get rid of the word "Blogroll" as that is probably the most outdated word on the entire WordPress install. I still use the links section with additional customizations on most sites of clients, but I normally use a Page to display them and then show a few random ones in the sidebar (if at all)

Regarding the sidebar links you are right on the dot when you say that the exact same can be accomplished with menus!

you don't think that 11 referral links in a mere 2 paragraphs of text is pushing it a bit?

"If you are using a child theme, the new theme file will be added in the parent theme (which is not ideal)."

Not ideal???

Completely useless you mean?!

yeah nice article, covers the lot and all what everybody else has covered before too.

one very important thing though that can potentially break many websites you leave out for whatever reason. Perhaps because not an awful lot of other people write about it either?

Anyways, for the people that want to know ALL the changes, including ones that can potentially break your website:

WordPress 3.2 will include jQuery 1.6.1. The new jQuery is faster and better but also has some major changes. The two most important changes that all plugin and theme authors must test for are:

1. Selectors that include [property=value] now require quotes.

2. All ‘selected’, ‘checked’ and ‘disabled’ properties should use the new .prop() method introduced in jQuery 1.6 instead of .attr(). In most cases .attr() will still work but for example.attr('checked', '')

fails (that used to remove the checked=”checked” from checkboxes).
