The Art of Darkness

Silly WordPress Plugin

December 20th, 2007 by Cobwebs

You bloggers using WordPress are probably familiar with the “Hello Dolly” plugin: It comes bundled with the standard install, and (for reasons that elude me) puts a random lyric from the song “Hello Dolly” on each page of your admin interface.

Carol Channing and Barbra Streisand both give me hives, so I’ve edited the plugin to instead display a random line from Poe’s “The Raven.” If you’re running WordPress, feel free to use it on your own site.

Hello Ennui Plugin

Download, unzip, and upload to your blog’s “wp-content/plugins/” directory. Then go to the blog admin interface and activate the plugin. Easy!
