Removing site name from admin bar

  • Hi

    I have been trying to remove certain items from the admin bar which appear at the top of all WordPress pages. I’ve managed to remove the ‘visit’ menu from it by reading a forum elsewhere but I have had no luck with researching how to remove the site name that appears first on the left of the admin bar. Does anyone here know how I can do it? as it’s driving me crazy.


    PS – This BuddyPress site has managed to do it. it has ‘My Account’ and ‘Notifications’ but no site name such as ‘BuddyPress’ in that same bar unlike my site.

    PPS – I’ve just figured out I can remove it by not having a site title but then it disappears from the header too which is not what I want.

    In your child theme, open adminbar.css and add #admin-bar-logo{display:none} that it.

    Easiest way to research how is to examine the two core files responsible for the adminbar/buddybar:
    buddtpressbp-corebp-core-buddybar.php & bp-core-adminbar.php

    CSS is only a presentational language, display:none not the best way of hiding/removing something

    to remove the site name completely add to your functions.php file in a child theme or in bp-custom.php in plugins folder this line:

    `remove_action( ‘bp_adminbar_logo’, ‘bp_adminbar_logo’ );`



    If you are doing a research about (display:none), no one said it’s not the best way to use it. There is a purpose for using (display:none) to hide and it does not remove it.
