Hello Simpsons Chalkboard Gag



A big thanks is owed to The Simpsons Archive,
without which this plugin would not be possible!

This plugin was based on the Hello Dolly plugin that most active WordPress users are familiar. Much like
the reason why Hello Dolly was created, the Simpsons Chalkboard Gag plugin was designed to bring a little
light-hearted fun into every page of the admin panel.

As an added bonus, this plugin creates the [simpsons] shortcode which can be included on any page or post
and, when used, will return a different Bartism each time the page is loaded.

If this plugin brings a smile to your day, please take a moment to
rate it!

How The Plugin Stays Up-To-Date

As new episodes of The Simpsons are released, more chalkboard gags are avialable. To avoid pushing a new
plugin version every week or two, a remote repository is maintained with up-to-date chalkboard gags
(within a week or two).

If this remote repository is ever down for any reason, the plugin also includes a local
database with all of the chalkboard gags up to the most recent release of the plugin.


  1. Upload hello-simpsons-chalkboard-gag to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the Plugins menu in WordPress
  3. Sit back and chuckle at Barts wit every time you load an admin page

Once installed, you will also be able to use the [simpsons] shortcode to include a random Bartism anywhere
within any of your pages or posts.

NOTE: Though this plugin can, in theory, run alongside the Hello Dolly plugin that is active
by default in WordPress distributions, it is strongly discouraged since the two dont look nice
together. Please disable or uninstall Hello Dolly before using this plugin for best results.
