Blogger Add A New Option To Turn Off The NavBar

Posted : Wednesday, July 25, 2012 | Post Author : Paul Crowe | 20 comments

The Blogger Navbar, when I first started Blogging it was somewhat of an issue.The issue wasn’t is there a way to remove it, there were lots of tutorials showing how to remove the Blogger navbar.No the issue was “Are we allowed to remove the Blogger Navbar?”.Many at the time feared removal could be against Blogger TOS and therefore end up in blogs being removed or accounts being closed.Blogger were always quiet on the issue but as there was never a story of a blog being effected because of removing the navbar we presumed it was OK.

I guess Blogger have now spoke as loud as possible on the issue as they have actually added the option to remove it or turn it off.So if your not a fan of the Blogger nav bar here is the new way to turn it off.Also check out the links at the end of the post to have a cool hover effect Navbar and move the Navbar to the bottom of pages.

New Turn Off The Blogger NavBar Option

We have the steps here and also a video tutorial below.

Step 1. In the new Blogger dashboard Click the drop down for your blog > Choose Layout.

Step 2. Click Edit For The Navbar :

Step 3. Now in the pop up along with the options to change the color of the navbar you will see the new option to turn it off.Select Off and save and that’s it the Navbar is gone.

More Cool Options For The Navbar

Here on Spice up Your Blog we have some other options for the Navbar.

Move The Navbar To The Bottom Of The Page – Yep quiet simply the Navbar will be displayed at the bottom of your blog instead of the top.
Have A Hover Effect Navbar – I quiet like this one especially if you use the Navbar but don’t like to look at it all the time.This tutorial will show you how to set the Navbar to only show when you hover your cursor over the area.

  3. I have not checked but I would think the codes will have to remain so you can turn it back on again.

  17. Hi Paul. I must say that I really like the “Hover” nav bar that you taught us a while back much better. I can’t figure out how to access my blog “Design, settings, ability to post a new post etc.” when the nav bar is completely gone. Do you know how to access it when the bar is completely gone?

  18. This is a nice option to have but it also removes the edit wrench and pencil. I like the hover effect better.

  20. As Ali said – When you turn off the navbar then you cannot acces the quick edit post. Frustrating! Yes, can use the old hack but please, why dangle a new feature like a carrot if you haven’t the bugs out?
