Hide Toolbar Unless Admin

There are times you’ll want to hide the WordPress toolbar, but only if the logged in user is an admin. It’s helpful when using a plugin like Restrict Content Pro. Mainly because when a new user signs up they’ll see the toolbar, which isn’t a great look for your brand.

Here’s how to get rid of it:

function remove_toolbar_bar_unless_admin() {
    if (!current_user_can('administrator') && !is_admin()) {

add_action('after_setup_theme', 'remove_toolbar_bar_unless_admin');
