Support » Plugin: WooCommerce » Admin bar not showing

    Hi, Woocommerce is hiding my admin bar for everyone but me (site owner). I want it to show up for all users. I have custom roles, so I just don’t even want to start dealing with role based permissions or any of that.

    I’ve tried using in my php inserter:

    add_filter( ‘woocommerce_prevent_admin_access’, ‘__return_false’ );
    add_filter( ‘woocommerce_disable_admin_bar’, ‘__return_false’ );

    But it doesn’t work. I’ve tried a few other things that were posted a while back, but they also don’t work. I’m going crazy! If anyone’s figured this out, please let me know.

    I have disabled all other plug ins, and enabled each one at a time. I’m sure it’s Woocommerce.

    Hi @alicia250,

    Can you tell me what the customers would gain from seeing the Admin bar? I’m just not sure what the purpose would be since the Admin bar doesn’t add any really relevant information or links for regular Customers.

    Several other plugins use the admin bar for a quick overview. My store is points based, and Mycred displays point balances in the profile. While I could have point balances display elsewhere, I want my customers to be reminded they have points to spend as easily as possible. 🙂

    Buddypress also uses the admin bar to show messages and gives quick links to areas of the site users find useful, and a few other plug-ins work nicely with it.

    Ideally, there would be a checkbox or switch to enable the bar for sites that utilize it.

    Makes sense! Have you tried maybe this plugin?
