Oceia bar

It's a vex of us all: we're reading our posts, need to change something, but how do we get to the administration? That's what Oceia bar is all about.


As of 2007/12/06:

  • Drop-downs on Oceia bar 2.3 and earlier did not work on Internet Explorer 6. This incompatibility has been fixed; quick thanks to user Adam for reporting the issue.
  • Oceia Bar 2.3 contains a new function called wp_adminbar(). This doesn't do much for regular users, but it's useful for theme designers, who can use function_exists() to see if Oceia bar is installed and hide the theme's "Edit this entry" text. I'm trying to get other admin bars to implement this same function, too.
  • Oceia bar 2.1.1 contained a filter that is no longer necessary in WordPress 2.2. This version is still compatible with 2.1, though.
  • Oceia bar 2.0 had a smart filter to detect what directory it was being placed in (for displaying CSS images). Unfortunately, this wasn't functioning properly on Windows Server. Anyway, this has been removed, so you must upload the entire oceia-bar directory if you want the bar to look right.
  • This version is almost identical to 2.0.9, but all legacy WordPress 2.0.x code has been removed. Thus, this version is only compatible with WordPress 2.1+.
  • This README has been updated to the new WordPress README standards.


We all want our stuff to look the way we want it to look. But nobody likes hacking core files, then re-hacking them every time you need to upgrade. That's why Oceia bar makes CSS customization easy: just create a file called style.css and upload it to your Oceia bar directory. Boom: any CSS you put in there will override the default Oceia bar CSS.

Note that if you do choose to use custom CSS, Oceia bar takes out all the !important flags in CSS. This doesn't matter most of the time, but it could get kind of quirky with some themes.
