    Please do something to get rid of the Admin bar always being there. It is completely useless and totally in the way. it is too distracting. Also do something so it is easier to get the menue to expand and NOT flyout. This is too frustrating. HELP Please!

  2. You can disable the TOOL bar from showing on the front-end of your site, but not the admin area. This is by design, as the tool bar has replaced the admin page header from previous versions. Notice that your 'Site Name' no longer appears at the top of the page, and is now a part of the bar.

    If you're desperate to expand all menus, there is a plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/expanded-admin-menus/

    No My site name does appear. I guess to get rid of the bar I have to go back to a previous version BUT my host is REQUIRING this update. Hmmm i guess that means getting rd of WordPress. One way or another I WILL get rid of that damn admin bar,. it is totally in the way and sucks big time

    It doesn't do anything but fill half the page and has no buttons or has no function but be in the way.

    If you really must get rid of it, you can easily hide it by adding the following function to your active theme's functions.php - or including it in a plugin:

    function hidemyadminbar() {
       echo '<style type="text/css">
               #wpadminbar {display: none;}
               #wpwrap {margin-top: -28px}
    add_action('admin_head', 'hidemyadminbar');

    I wouldn't though - I quite like the admin bar - even though I wasn't keen on the previous version.

    I wouldn't want to get rid of it if it did not cover half the page. It is nothing but a big Black Bar that covers more than 1/2 of ther page. I do not see anything that it is for except getting in the way. It does not do anything but have popups saying what is coming soon or what has been changed. Why is it so BIG and why does it seem to NOT have ANY usefull finctuion. No writing on it, no buttons no menues...NOTHING but Black stripe that coves 1/2 the page. I first thought it was my installation, but it is that way on all 688 sites at 6 different hosts and 14 different hosting accounts

    It sounds like something is wrong if it covers half the page. Can you post a link to a screenshot? It is less than 30px tall at the top of all of my installations.

    I take it yours does not look like the screenshots on this page?

    Does it reduce to a more managable size if you deactivate all plugins & switch to the default twenty-eleven theme on one of the sites?

    One site I have has only Akismet Plugin and uses twenty-Eleven. It is th same as all the others.
    You are right it is nothing like the screenshot. That size would be manageable. i could ignore it if it was that size. I think the best bet for me is to go back a few versions. I really would not want it, even at the size in the screenshot. The menues are also pretty pathetic. It takes forever for them to open. I guess that is a feature of flyout instead of expanding. once they flyout the page opens fast, it just is so slow to flyout. This new version really is awful.

    To try to solve your menu problem, did you try the plugin Ipstenu linked to? The flyouts work fine on my installations so something is weird.

    What OS & web browser are you using? Have you tried it on different computers with different browsers?

    Isn't it weird this happens on every installation,mine and my clients. if it was just one or limited to one host I might think it is the installation. However, today I checked with some friends. We are now up to 926 installations at 8 different hosts and 27 different hosting accounts.
    Yes it has been tried on Win7, Vista, XP, Mac, and 4 variations of Linux.
    Browsers include MSIE, Firefox, Chrome, and I am sure some of the guys have used or are using other browsers. I have not yet heard back from all of them. No I have not tried using the plugin you mentioned.

    I am just going to go back to an older version and recommend the same to my clients.

    Yes it does sound weird. It not something I have seen or heard of.

    Can you post a link to a screenshot to show how it looks?

    What you have been describing is clearly not how the admin bar is supposed to look or behave. Also, no one else has complained about it being a featureless black bar which takes up half the screen.

    Also, flyouts appear nearly instantly on my install once the page has loaded fully. Perhaps there is something you have customized for all your clients that is causing a problem.

    Many threads already fully resolve your issue, below is just one of the short and simple ones:

    Next time just do a search in the forums.

    Problem solved. Going to use a different platform on my main site and reverting back 2 versions on all others.

    that's not a solution, that's a workaround. Old versions will not be updated to fix any exploits that may be found in the future.

    Clearly the presence of the admin bar isn't the problem, but something unusual is causing it to display incorrectly.

  16. Which is probably a theme or plugin incompatibility issue.

    Try using TwentyEvelen, see if it works.

    as stated in post http://wordpress.org/support/topic/top-toolbar-is-annoying?replies=13 New plugins have taken care of the admin bar. It is gone on all installations. The flyouts are the only prob now. I guess i can live with them. @Ipstenu Half-Elf Support Rogue & Mod I don't think it is theme related because it is happening with 12 themes, including 2010 and 2011, as well as Genesis/Streamlined, Flexibility, flexsqueeze, and flexibility2, CTR and Raindrops and others.

    I have tried deactivationg all plugins.

  18. Try TwentyEleven.

    I say this because it works for the rest of us just fine and you get this:

    It is nothing but a big Black Bar that covers more than 1/2 of ther page.

    The usual steps to debugging are, in order:

    1) RENAME the plugins folder (not just deactivate, rename it to plugins-old)
    2) Switch to the default theme (TwentyEleven)
    3) Re-upload the WP core files manually

    Just an update: I now know the problem and it may soon multiply, but for now is ok. The new server OS that is being used for US Gov't sites is giving the problem As you may know there is a coming security change that will soon be thrust open Windows and Linux. The new OS being beta tested KairOS is the problem right now. it is incompatable with the newest version of WP. This OS has a security feature that will soon be required for all server OS to comply with. It may be 6 months or it could be a year or longer (as I was told today) but it looks as if it will not work with this newest version of WP.
    Anyway it seems to work if moving domains to traditional hosting.

  20. Wow. That's a WILD error for a server.

    I wonder if it's how it's parsing Javascript or possibly PHP.

    They're not using SUHosin, are they?
