Hide Admin Bar Search
[resolved] This is just CSS - know PHP method? (2 posts)

  1. No offense, but this plugin seems pretty trivial, as it only outputs

    #wpadminbar #adminbarsearch {display: none;}

    which someone could quite easily do much quicker with their CSS editor.

    Do you know how to remove it with PHP?

    Yes, this is a small plugin indeed. However, it addresses the following:

    • Not all people are comfortable editing their CSS
    • It also hides the search in the admin/dashboard, which is not a CSS file you should be editing
    • One may want it to be network-wide regardless of what theme is being used in a multisite situation (which was my reason for writing this in the first place)

    There is no way to remove it using PHP - it's baked directly in the render() method for the admin bar class. Believe me, if I could have done it that way, I would, and then would have titled the plugin "Remove Admin Bar Search" instead of "Hide Admin Bar Search".
