    It's pretty much here to stay, as it's now the overall header.

    (For the backend anyway, can still be turned off upfront, through a profile option, or code for all users)

    well personally i want to see my site and not a toolbar overhead while im logged on. there are many other 'going ons' on a given page/post than merely clicking on the toolbar link. Now.. if it would open a new tab/window - okay now it helps. but clicking back and forth is really annoying.

    you are saying that i must live with it. come on... seriously there are far many other things that need fixing on/with the wordpress platform than adding more unnecessary bells and whistles.

    thats how i feel anyway

    I hate it also. The reason is I use SeoQuake and the toolbar covers it over. So the only way I can access my seo stats is to visit the site.

    On the back end I believe this is true. On the front-end, as in when viewing your site, it can be turned off

    UNnecessary to you, sure. These decisions aren't taken lightly, and aren't made by some random person who got bored one day. I know a lot of in depth conversation and debate goes in to these changes. The end goal being ease of use, especially for a new user.

    I personally am still pretty ambivalent regarding the tool bar. I didn't need it, but it doesn't hurt my feelings.

    as i said ' that's how i personally feel' - it most certainly doesnt hurt my feelings. but what really annoys me is that within wp-admin there are far too many uneasiness as a comparison to this toolbar. i gather that you know your way around your browser. so do i. but if you would sit in front of any novice computer... or even an experienced blogger's pc; they will have, oh... perhaps 4-7 toolbars on their browser and have no clue how to remove them. with 11 years training newbies on a daily bases, wordpress has just added another stack of clumsiness.

    by adding another ... is a royal pain in the arse!
    As i said... it doesnt hurt my feelings, but it added more fuss. nuff said.

    PS: After some deeper thought. i guess what really bothers me is having to (or MUST) use something (or FORCED) on my front browser window where i consider it as personal space i care about. I personally like less. im not one for clutter. i guess thats my pet peeve.

    WordPress guys; i do understand why you made it, however please let me turn it off, okay?

    That isn't going to happen.

    If you don't want it on your FRONT browser, you can disable it, though, in your profile. It will remain in your back end /dashboard, for the foreseeable future.

    If you wish to completely disable the admin bar in the Dashboard and have 3.3 work --- you can use sLa's Admin Bar Removal plugin:

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-admin-bar-removal/

    in conjunction with my plugin One Click Logout Barless:

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/one-click-logout-barless/

    Installed together in 3.3, they get rid of the admin bar AND allow logout, and when multisite is installed -- my plugin allows multisite navigation, too.

    Cheers!

    Oh I haste it too. I might could live with it but it overs more than 1/2 the page, seems to have no useful function. I mean why put it on there to just cover 1/2 the page and no buttons or menu or anything. I agree with the above, it must have been imbeciles that decided to do it, especially if a lot of though went into it. I first thought it was just my installation but i have spoken to 10 others and they have the same problem. All 197 of my blogs and all 204 of my clients.

    The only solution I see is to either go back a few versions or perhaps quit using WP totally and go to a different platform.

    The admin bar does NOT cover half the page. If it does, your results are anything but typical, and you have other issues. If you are not going to provide screen shots, or specific details, then I suggest you go ahead and change platforms like your previous threads and empty threats suggest. Otherwise, lets get cracking and solve your problems with some actual attempts at diagnosis and repair.

    @olyma Thanks. it works for me. That's great.
    Now if I can just get the flyout menu to go or work, things will be great again.

    Fly-outs are working perfectly in 3.3.1. Reiterate your issue for us, so that we may help you resolve your problem.
    [edit] please.

  13. bballs's problems are probably theme related, but he has his own post. Closing this in the interests of supportability.
