Tips on Hiding WordPress Admin Bar

The first thing that you can see when you login to your WordPress site is the presence of an admin bar that is located in the uppermost section of your screen. Some of its features include a possibility of creating new pages or posts, editing your profile, and more. However, despite being useful in that regard, the presence of this toolbar may appear distracting to many users. This is especially true of developers who don’t want it to divert attention from any specific design they’ve applied to their website. Thus, many people resort to hiding WordPress admin bar since they find it off-putting.

If you fall into the category of those who get sidetracked by this toolbar and would rather not see it at all, then don’t fret – hiding WordPress admin bar is a pretty simple thing to do. We’ve got easy tips prepared for you that will help you get rid of this irritating feature once and for all. And, they are the same for Classic Editor and Gutenberg alike.

1. Go to Users -> All Users

As this toolbar is only visible to logged users, the first thing that you will have to do is login into your WordPress website and access the Dashboard. In order to hide the admin bar, you should go to Users tab and click on All Users option. Again, it doesn’t matter if you’re using the Classic or the Gutenberg editor, it’s all the same.


2. Click Edit

Then, simply find the username that you want to apply changes for and click on Edit button.


If you want to specifically remove the toolbar from your own profile, then instead of selecting All Users from the first step, you can click on Go to Users first. Afterwards, select Your Profile option.

3. Uncheck the Show toolbar when viewing site


Once you are in profile page, find the Toolbar option and uncheck Show Toolbar when viewing site checkbox.


4. Scroll down and click Update User/Profile at the end of the page

Finally, you can scroll down and click on Update Profile or Update User button, depending on whether you chose All Users or Your Profile option after clicking on Users button.


And you’re done! You can breathe a sigh of relief – your WordPress toolbar won’t be displayed on the front-end of your website anymore. Now you can enjoy your website’s distraction-free design to the fullest.
