Great plugin. I use another plugin to remove the admin bar from the top when logged in to WordPress, but the Catablog menu that gets automatically added to the admin bar is still present at the top as a vertical list. How can I remove this from the admin bar completely? I’m happy to edit any core plugin files if you can point me in the right direction.
You should remove the other plugin that “removes the admin bar” from the top of the page. Instead use the built in WordPress option to turn it on or off, it is in the User > Your Profile section. Besides, IMHO the admin bar is truly a user preference, that should be available for other admins.
I want to remove the admin bar completely, because I don’t want my clients attempting to update the plugins. In most cases they’ve been highly customized, and updating them will overwrite the customizations. Using the admin preference to remove the admin bar only removes in from the frontend, not the backend, hence why I employ the remove admin bar plugin.
Can anyone address my original question?
First off, how would removing the admin bar stop your client from just going to the wp-admin/plugins.php and loading the admin plugin interface. Sounds to me like you want to freeze your WordPress setup and use it more like a building block and less like an actual web application.
Well then, I would suggest you ask the other plugin developer to modify their plugin so it works with more than just the stock admin bar. You can also write your own plugin (it’s really easy) to properly remove all registered admin bar items. The admin bar is a well documented feature that should be embraced, like so many other plugin developers have done by adding their own menus to the admin bar.
Anyways, I would never ever edit any core files, it is a great way to cause all sorts of headaches when you want to update WordPress, oh, but I guess you don’t want to do that…
Could you give your client a less privileged account, perhaps an editor account?
