Remove WordPress Admin bar for non admins!

If you’ve got a WordPress website and allow people to sign-up (that includes WooCommerce enabled eCommerce shops), then you probably don’t want them seeing that black admin bar along the top of the browser page – it just doesn’t look right for shoppers/visitors really, and I believe it should only appear for site admins.

I’m Office Wonk

Some time ago I decided to combine my love of the amazing WONK UNIT and my techie web skills; spending some time creating the official website for Alex ‘Daddy’ Wonk.
