Remove the Blogger Navbar or Banner

How to Remove Blogger Beta Navbar

1- Log in to blogger

2- On your Dashboard, select Layout. This will take you to the Template tab. Click Edit HTML. Under the Edit Template section you will see you blog's HTML.

3- paste the CSS definition in the top of the template code:
#navbar-iframe {
height:0px;
visibility:hidden;
display:none !important;
}

Remove the code to show it again.


Should you hide the navbar ? Will it break any blogger TOS ?

The old blogger as well as beta blogger's policy page do not mention anything about removing the blogger navigation toolbar. Infact, the old blogger TOS page still makes references to Pyra when Google is the owner.

Similarly many blogger users have raised a similar issue in the Blogger google groups but again, there has been no real consensus.

Geek Out with Commander and Omega CE

Today's Picks
Commander
  • Version: 1.34
  • File Size: 852
  • License: Free
  • Operating System: Windows 98,Windows 2000,Windows Me,Windows XP,Windows Vista
In the beginning, there was the Command Line. Then came all kinds of replacement programs. One of the best was Norton Commander. Thus we come to Commander, which is, basically, Norton Commander for Windows. Whether or not this is a good thing is up to you. - Ian Harac Read more and download this software »
Omega CE Beta
  • Version: 2.0 beta
  • File Size: 96
  • License: Free
  • Operating System: Windows 2000,Windows XP,Windows Vista,Windows Server 2003,Windows Server 2008,Windows 7
Omega CE helps get rid of files from malware infections that might hide or protect themselves from normal deletion. The program doesn't run from within Windows. Instead, you burn it to a CD and then boot the infected PC from that CD. Omega then sifts through all the files on the hard drive(s) and displays them in an Explorer-like interface. In the hands of an expert the tool could prove useful. - Erik Larkin Read more and download this software »
