Change The Blogger Navbar To Hover Effect / Peek A Boo Effect


In an earlier post i covered Removing the blogger navbar completely.This is quiet a popular post as many dont like the navbar, but it can be useful.The navbar has progressed over the years to include extra options such as bookmarking and of course has the quick links into your account. So how about a hover effect navbar ?.Basically the navbar will only appear when you place your cursor over the space were it sits.Take a look at the demo below and place your cursor over the area were the navbar should be.

Removing navbar and setting peek-a-boo effect are not against blogger T.O.S.We set navbar to hover effect in three easy steps.

Have Hover Effect Blogger Navbar

Step 1. – In Your (New Design) Blogger Dashboard Click The Drop Down Menu For Your Blog > Choose Customize > Advanced > Add Css, as shown in the video below.

Step 2. Copy and Paste the following code into the Css Section then click Apply To Blog.

#navbar-iframe{opacity:0.0;filter:alpha(Opacity=0)}
#navbar-iframe:hover{opacity:1.0;filter:alpha(Opacity=100, FinishedOpacity=100)}

Just remove the code to set the navbar back to standard or to see how to remove it completely.Check out some more Blogger Navbar Effects.

  4. …Hello, is the navbar supposed to drop down when you place your cursor at the top of the page? I followed the instructions but nothing appears but when I place my cursor at the far top left of the page the typed word ‘blogger’ appears and it is clickable. Is this right? Please advise.

    …Thank you so much! :o)

  23. Good Job with this post. I found another site that has this code but had put their “label” on it. Personally I do not find that in good taste. So, with that said, because you did not feel the need to personalize every code you offer I will tag you on my Blog! Feel free to check it out: Iowa DIY Girl

  26. Thanks so much! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the navbar hover effect. I don’t like seeing it on my blog all the time, but I like to have it there when I need it! At first, I had trouble with the above code, but it wasn’t the code. It was me. I had turned off the Navbar in the template some time ago and just forgot to turn it back on. After turning it back on and adding the simple “navbar hover” code as you show above, it works!

    Thanks so much, Paul!
