He's Dead, Jim — A Star Trek Plugin for WordPress
Do you like the idea behind Matt's "Hello, Dolly" plugin, but feel that it doesn't feed your inner nerd? Then here's "He's Dead, Jim" which has been shamelessly ported from Matt's plugin. The concept is the same, except that instead of lines from "Hello, Dolly" you get lines from Star Trek: The Original Series.


As of this point, there aren't any options. Simply install the plugin, activate it, and sit back and enjoy the nerdiness.


You can install it from the WordPress admin, or via FTP. You can view both versions on the plugin's installation page on


No screenshots are available yet. When they are, they will appear on the plugin's screenshots page on


What happens if "Hello Dolly" is still activated?

Normally, "He's Dead, Jim" will output its text where "Hello Dolly" does. If "Hello Dolly" is activated, "He's Dead Jim" will output its text to the left of "Hello Dolly"'s output.

What happens if "Make It So" is also activated?

"He's Dead, Jim" will appear in a box to the left of the screen, and "Make It So" will appear in a box to the right of that.


It is possible to customize the plugin's appearance using a child theme. (I'm not sure if WordPress 4.7's new custom css feature will affect the admin pages. I need to investigate this.) (Add instructions here.)
