Toggling the display of the WordPress Admin Bar (wpadminbar)
The WordPress admin bar can sometimes get in the way of checking what a site looks like
while being logged in, so it's convenient to hide it occasionally.
To do this, we need a CSS class and some jQuery code, which toggles the admin bar display
when pressing Shift-A.
The CSS can be added to the theme's normal stylesheet. The PHP/jQuery code can be added
into footer.php or included within an action in functions.php.
* The code was adapted from the Bottom Admin Bar plugin. {
margin-top: 0 !important;
<?php if ( is_user_logged_in() ) { ?>
// Toggle admin bar display with Shift-A
jQuery(document).ready(function($) {
$('body').keydown(function( event ) {
if ( event.shiftKey === true && event.which === 65 ) {
<?php } ?>
