Hide Admin Bar from Non-Admins

Description

Perfect for sites where there is only one admin who needs access to the dashboard and the admin bar.

When activated only administrators will see the admin bar.

This plugin is just a few lines of code. Specifically the line if(!current_user_can('administrator')) determines who the admin bar is hidden for. Feel free to edit this to your needs. E.g. using
if(!current_user_can(‘edit_posts’)) will allow authors to view the admin bar as well.

This plugin has no settings and will not be updated often, so feel free to edit to your needs.

Reviews

Would be better with selectable options

Rather than suggesting users edit the PHP code of the plugin itself, it would have been better to add an options page. I recommend Admin Bar Disabler instead (https://wordpress.org/plugins/admin-bar-disabler), which has an actual settings page where you can choose who sees the Admin Bar by role.

works just fine

I’m not sure what the problem is that caused people to give this less than 5 stars. It works just fine. There are no settings. Here is what it does: Hides the admin bar from the FRONT END of your site for all but admin users. That’s it.
