Unobtrusive Admin Bar

Description

When activated the plugin will make the admin bar hidden from sight for signed in users, but you can still have access to the features. Simply move the cursor to the top of your website and the admin bar will appear. Now you can keep the accessibility of the WordPress admin bar without compromising the appearance of your website.

Screenshots

  • The admin bar is hidden by default.
  • Hovering near the top of the page reveals a hint for a visual indication. Pausing on this will reveal the full admin bar.
  • After hovering the admin bar is revealed.

Installation

Upload the plugin to your WordPress plugins directory, or use the dashboard to ‘Add New’ plugins and activate it.

Filters

There are a couple of filters available to make adjustments for your site. These may be added to an options panel in a future release.

uab_responsive_break_point

  • This passes a numeric value. The admin-bar is shown automatically on smaller screens because an auto-hide effect on hover would not work with touch devices. The default value is 783 which is the current WordPress break point for showing the mobile styling for the admin bar.

Sample use:

function my_adminbar_breakpoint( $break )
    $break = 960;
    return $break;
}
add_filter('uab_responsive_break_point', 'my_adminbar_breakpoint');

uab_add_top_margin

  • Optionally adds back the margin to <html> and <body> for the admin bar. The result is the page content pushes down during the display of the admin bar. Due to the positioning of headers and menus with fixed and top docked styles this often has no effect. The allowed values are (boolean) true, false and (string) ‘top’. The default setting is false. The ‘top’ value will apply the margin only when the user has not scrolled.

Sample use:

function my_adminbar_margin( $option )
    $option = true; // false (default), true or 'top'
    return $option;
}
add_filter('uab_add_top_margin', 'my_adminbar_margin');
