How to remove or hide Navigation Bar (navbar) in Blogger

blogger-nav-bar-remove

The navbar (navigation bar) is the horizontal bar located at the top of your page. If you think it doesn’t match your blog’s design, or if you need that extra space for your banner — you can remove it to suit your needs.

Here’s how:

1. Go to your Dashboard > Layout

2. under Template tab, click Edit HTML to edit template

3. Just add the piece of code below somewhere between the <head> and </head> tags of your blog’s template…

#navbar-iframe {
height: 0px;
visibility: hidden;
display: none;}

…like this:

  <head>
    <b:include data='blog' name='all-head-content'/>
    <title><data:blog.pageTitle/></title>
    <b:skin><![CDATA[
/*-----------------------------------------------

----------------------------------------------- */

#navbar-iframe {
height: 0px;
visibility: hidden;
display: none;}

4. Click SAVE TEMPLATE.

Not sure about the <head> </head> tags?…

Here’s another way. Just look for the piece of code that looks something like this:

body {
background:$bgcolor;
margin:0;
color:$textcolor;
font: x-small “Trebuchet MS”, Trebuchet, Verdana, Sans-serif;
font-size/* */:/**/small;
font-size: /**/small;
text-align: center;
}

…and place the code just above it like this:

#navbar-iframe {
height: 0px;
visibility: hidden;
display: none;}

body {
background:$bgcolor;
margin:0;
color:$textcolor;
font: x-small “Trebuchet MS”, Trebuchet, Verdana, Sans-serif;
font-size/* */:/**/small;
font-size: /**/small;
text-align: center;
}

Click SAVE TEMPLATE. And that’s it!

Happy blogging!

  1. Thank you for the info. I removed already the navigation bar.

  2. it is just recently that i knew that it’s possible to remove this navbar, my blogs were just bad and so, for long time. In my opinion it’s always a better option to remove the blogger navbar because when it’s not done, the blog just looks like a novice blog. Thanks so much for the trick! Wow! This tip will grow my traffic by 200%, many people really ignore this tip. I thank you so much guy!
