WordPress admin bar, also known as the WordPress Toolbar is a great way to get things done pretty quickly without having to follow the harder way to accomplish things on WordPress. For example, creating a new post or editing the current one need not be done via the backend of the website if you have the WordPress admin bar active and visible. This saves a lot of time for anyone who works with their website on a daily basis. So, if you do not mind that extra 32 pixels consumed by the admin bar, it would be a great productivity hack on a WordPress website.
However, not everyone likes everything. Especially if the website needs tweaks or design changes once in a while which might be clutter to keep the admin bar at the top. Or if you like the traditional way of doing things, there is no need to keep the admin bar active on the website. In that case, you can follow the steps in this guide to disable the admin bar on your WordPress website.
Steps Disable WordPress ToolBar
- Open your WordPress backend.
- Navigate to Users > Your Profile.
- Uncheck the box “Show Toolbar when viewing site.”
- Click the Save Changes button at the bottom.
That’s it. From now on, the WordPress toolbar won’t be visible on your website. If you want to turn it on again, you can go to your profile page once again and simply tick the checkbox and save the changes. As simple as that.
