Turn Off WordPress Admin Bar

WordPress is really trying to make there cms as user friendly as possible. With the new release of version 3.1 WordPress has included a admin bar for logged in users. As a lot of people are wondering is it possible to remove this item that has been included. Well the answer is yes. There is actually a couple ways to remove the admin bar. First option would be to download a plugin that does it for you. Not the worst option but not really the best either. If you would like to disable this option just for your user, you can by going to your account and editing it there. Here is a image for more help:

Other Options

Well I know personally I don’t want my users to have this ability. So I want to have this not display for everyone not just myself. This is not as easy as the other two options but is not that hard also. What you need to do is get access to your functions.php file in your theme folder. Now you need to edit that file and add the following lines of code:

Now this will disable the admin bar for all users but all users will still see the option if they edit there account. So we also need to hide the option from the user and that will take adding this code to your functions.php file:

Now this will disable the admin bar option and the admin bar for all users. Hope this helped everyone.
