How To Remove Blogger Navbar

What is Blogger Navbar?

Blogger has got a Navigation Bar that appears by default at the top of every Blogger-powered blog. This navigation bar can be very useful when you are blogging, but sometimes it can get in the way. The Blogger navbar is usually hidden in most of the third party templates, so this tutorial might be useful only for those who are using a default Blogger template.


- when you click on the B icon, it will take you to
- a quick link to your Dashboard and "Sign in /Sign out" dialog
- you can easily search and find other blogs
- you can "Flag Blog" (if you consider content of a blog objectionable)
- NextBlog - takes you to a random, recently-updated Blogger blog

The only disadvantage is visual. If you have customized design, this navbar just doesn't fit in. So, how could we get rid of it? It is very easy. Just follow these steps below:

Turn off The Blogger Navbar

Step 1. Log in to your Blogger account, click on your blog and head to the 'Layout' tab > look for the 'Navbar' heading and click on the Edit link as shown in this picture:

edit blogger navbar

Step 2. When the pop-up window appears, scroll down and select 'Off', then click the Save button:

turn off blogger navbar

And that's it! With only two easy steps and we have already removed the Blogger Navbar.

  17. Is there another easy way after I remove the navbar to sign in and out and make changes to my blog?

    1. Hi Lindsay,

      You can hide the navbar only to your blog visitors. Go to Layout again and check one of the options to show the navbar, then go to Template > Edit HTML and search (CTRL + F) for this line:
      <b:section class='navbar' id='navbar' maxwidgets='1' showaddelement='no'>

      Just above this line, add this code:
      <span class='item-control blog-admin'>

      Now look below the first line and find the </b:section> tag.
      Just after the </b:section> tag, add this code:

      Now the Blogger Navbar will hide when someone visits your blog and it will be visible only to you.

      If you want to know how to make other widgets visible only to you, please read this tutorial:
