Admin Bar Button

Hide the WordPress admin bar until you need it.

What options are available?

Admin Bar Button

  • Button text: > The text to display in the Admin Bar Button. You can set this to anything you want, the button will resize appropriately.
  • Position on the screen: > Where on the screen to position the Admin Bar Button. You can place the button in any of the four corners. If you choose 'Bottom left' or 'Bottom right' then the WordPress admin bar will also be shown on the bottom of the screen.
  • Button activated on: > The actions that will activate the WordPress admin bar. Currently you can choose between when the user clicks the button, when they hover over it, or both.

WordPress Admin Bar

  • Reserve space: > Whether or not to reserve space at the top of the page for the WordPress admin bar.
  • Auto-hide the admin bar: > Whether or not to automatically hide the WordPress admin bar.
  • Admin bar show time (milliseconds): > The time (in milliseconds) that the WordPress admin bar will be shown for. The minimum time is 5000 (5 seconds), and setting this option to less than that will result in the default being used. This option is irrelevant and so ignored if Auto-hide the admin bar is not checked.
  • Show the hide button: > Whether or not to include a 'Hide' button on the WordPress admin bar. This is recommended if you've not checked Auto-hide the admin bar
  • Show the WordPress menu: > Whether or not to include the WordPress menu on the WordPress admin bar, when it's shown. Beware that you'll lose access to all of the links in the WordPress menu if it's not shown.

Colours

  • Background colour: > The background colour of the Admin Bar Button and the WordPress admin bar
  • Background colour (hover): > The background hover colour of the Admin Bar Button and the WordPress admin bar. Also changes the WordPress admin bar sub-menus background colour. Note that only the colour of buttons which are hovered will change, not the entire WordPress admin bar.
  • Text colour: > The colour of the text for the Admin Bar Button and the WordPress admin bar.
  • Text colour (hover): > The hover colour of the text for the Admin Bar Button and the WordPress admin bar.

Animation

  • Animate actions: > Whether or not to animate the showing/hiding of the WordPress admin bar.
  • Animation duration (milliseconds): > The time (in milliseconds) that it takes for the Admin Bar Button to slide off of the screen and be replaced by the WordPress admin bar (and vice versa). Any positive value is acceptable, and setting '0' will disable the animation.
