How To Remove WordPress Admin Bar

With the upcoming release of WordPress 3.1, a new feature will be added to WordPress, for admins to be able to edit and interact with their site directly from the front-end. This admin bar will be placed at the top of the website, and will provide quick links to the admin menus directly from the site.

While I am not a big fan of this feature, it seems the WordPress team has decided it was worth including into the core engine, maybe as a first step towards a front-end editor.

In my opinion, this should have been available as a plugin, or rather as a core plugin, since the dev team planned to develop several plugins themselves and insure their maintenance.

That’s why I will be looking for a way to disable this admin bar as soon as 3.1 will come out. Luckily , OZH has already provided us with a plugin to disable this bar.

Of course, this code he provides us can be included into your functions.php directly.

And you, what do you think of that admin bar? Will you be using it?
