Not many like the admin bar at the top provided by WordPress. Even though in WordPress 3.3, admin bar being called toolbar is much better, viewing my website as a user, the toolbar adds some unneeded options and it doesn’t fit into the site in terms of look and feel. I do not mind the admin bar at the back-end especially for one reason – I use W3C total cache and the ‘Empty All Caches’ option is the only reason I have the toolbar at the back-end.
So how do we remove the toolbar only in the front end? There are lots of plugins available which can do this along with other options. But a simple and easy solution to remove it, is by using a wordpress function ‘show_admin_bar’.
We can call this function in the theme’s ‘functions.php’ file. Write the following line of code inside the php tags (<?php ?>)
show_admin_bar( false );
That’s it. On next refresh, the toolbar will not there in the front end of your site.
