Replace “Howdy” with “Logged in as” in WordPress bar

If the default “Howdy” is too informal or you just want another message on the WordPress menu bar, head over to your functions.php and add this:

howly

function replace_howdy( $wp_admin_bar ) {
    $my_account=$wp_admin_bar->get_node('my-account');
    $newtitle = str_replace( 'Howdy,', 'Logged in as', $my_account->title );
    $wp_admin_bar->add_node( array(
        'id' => 'my-account',
        'title' => $newtitle,
    ) );
}
add_filter( 'admin_bar_menu', 'replace_howdy',25 );

Output:
howly-output
