    Hello,

    With the latest release there is a new Admin Bar menu item on the front end.

    I can see how this might be a useful for some admins, but there are many cases where having these 3rd party items in the admin bar is undesirable.

    I am perfectly capable of unhooking the node with a bit of custom code if I want to.

    However there should always be an option to disable admin bar items that are injected by plugins from within the settings of the plugin itself if people prefer not to have this present on the front end.

    Please add the option to disable this directly from the settings.

    Many thanks

    @gecko_guy I shared your request and we’ll continue exploring it in this request on our repository.

    You may be aware, but there is also a filter available to disable it:

    add_filter( 'googlesitekit_show_admin_bar_menu', '__return_false', 1000 );

    Thanks again for your feedback!

    @reneesoffice thanks for following up on this, much appreciated.

    I’ll keep track of the issue in your Github repo..

    I would like to reiterate that while I know how to disable the node with a filter, this is inconvenient, and in terms of “best practice” plugins of this nature should either not assume a place in the front end admin bar, or there should be a simple switch to disable it from within the plugin settings.

    Not everyone uses Child Themes, or knows how to add php code. If you look at any of the high profile plugins that have a potential use for quick links in the front end admin bar, all of them have the option to turn the item off from within the settings of the plugin, precisely because people have complained about the “intrusion without choice”.

    I’m sure I don’t need to belabour the point, and am looking forward to the option to toggle it from the settings in a future release.

    Thanks again for following up!
