Hide Admin Bar from Non-Admins

Description

Install, activate, and you’re done.

This plugin hides the WordPress Toolbar (admin bar) for all visitors and users without the ‘administrator’ role. It’s a very simple plugin with no settings to configure.

  • Use this plugin for sites with only one admin who needs access to the dashboard and the admin bar.
  • This plugin is super lightweight, with just a few lines of code.
  • If you need to show the toolbar for other user roles, use the filter habfna_show_admin_bar_roles.

This plugin is a tweak of the code by Yoast to hide the admin bar for non-admins only.

FAQ

How do I hide the toolbar for other user roles?

If you need to show the toolbar for other user roles, use the filter habfna_show_admin_bar_roles. Here is a code recipe that demonstrates how to use this filter.

How do I block non-admins from access the WordPress admin area?

This plugin does not handle any user redirection. It’s only for hiding the admin bar. If you are building a site that needs more robust user management, consider our WordPress membership plugin, Paid Memberships Pro.

Paid Memberships Pro allows anyone to build a membership site—for free. Restrict content, accept payment, and manage subscriptions right from your WordPress admin.

Works perfectly. For a membership site, I don't want anyone seeing the admin bar except admins! Thank you 🙂

I tried more than 5 plugins, this one is the best, it shows toolbar for admin, but it hides it from users. Thank you, you deserve this positive comment
