            Whilst the Admin Bar in <span id="urn:enhancement-0823908a-ccb5-8f17-a1ec-ee9cc60e5595" class="textannotation disambiguated wl-thing wl-no-link" itemid="http://data.wordlift.io/wl0226/entity/wordpress_2">WordPress</span> can be convenient for some people, for others, such as designers, it can become a pain.

If you're modifying your site styles and being logged in is pushing the content down in order to display the admin bar, then disabling it could be for you.

It's a lot easier than you might think aswell.

Follow our simple steps:

  1. Log in to the WordPress Admin Dashboard: Hover over 'Appearance' and select 'Editor':
  2. At the right, select 'Theme Functions' (functions.php). When the editor loads up, paste the following code:show_admin_bar( false );
  3. Click on 'Update File'

Your admin bar should no longer appear when you are logged into your WordPress blog.
