Auto Hide Admin Bar


Auto Hide Admin Bar makes the WordPress Toolbar disappear – and reappear when hovering the mouse pointer over the top of the browser window.
You end up with a clean view of your site, and keep having access to the WordPress Toolbar.
If you have any comments or questions, please use the support forum.


  1. Upload auto-hide-admin-bar directory to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. We’re all done, now you have an auto hiding Toolbar.

Simply beautiful! I don’t know why this option not include WordPress at this time. I mean, this dynamic hiding option, not only show and hide.

As a designer I hate the tool bar maring up my design this keeps all the functionality and helps me maintain my sanity. Thanks for this great plugin.
