I’ve been recently working on building a few simple WordPress plugins to use. These probably are not written correctly but they work for what I need them for. 

Branding Removal – Removes the Howdy text, the WordPress Menu on the Admin Bar, and the Footer text from the dashboard.

Dashboard Widgets Removal – Removes pointless Wordpress Dashboard Widgets

Login Logo – Changes the Default logo on the Login screen to custom logo and link

Logo URL – Add Logo URL option in settings; required for Login Logo

Widget Menu – Allows a menu to be added as a widget

Use them at your own risk!

You can download the package here. Drop them in your /wp-content/plugins/ folder.
