    After looking at this thread (https://buddydev.com/support/forums/topic/disable-admin-bar-for-all-users-except-for-administrators-code-not-working/)
    I was wondering…
    How can we create a snippet to have a conditional admin bar in frontend upon user status. I explain.

    * Non logged user = WP Admin bar not displayed at all (personnaly I don’t put a login access here, but I made a special login page with better security)
    * logged user = WP Admin bar with profile and activity stream)
    * bbpress moderator = + forum menu
    * admin = normal bar

    Following these tips I roughly understand the concept, but not able to do it.
    https://www.sitepoint.com/customize-wordpress-toolbar/ and can’t figure out how to distinguish simple logged from moderator or admin.

    If you can tell me how to do it right, I will be even more grateful to you.
    Thx
    Bruno

    Hi Bruno,
    Thank you fro the question.

    I believe that the tutorial provides fairly good amount of details.

    you can combine it with some capability check to get the desired result.

    Hi Brajesh,

    Ok, I’m not a PHP guy (I’m a graphist) anyway.
    Here is the code I created. Is there an easier way to do this?

    ‘// Update Admin Toolbar Function
    function my_update_adminbar($wp_adminbar) {

    // remove unnecessary items
    $wp_adminbar->remove_node(‘wp-logo’);
    $wp_adminbar->remove_node(‘bp-login’);
    $wp_adminbar->remove_node(‘new-content’);
    $wp_adminbar->remove_node(‘site-name’);
    $wp_adminbar->remove_node(‘search’);
    }
    function my_update_adminbar_modo($wp_adminbar) {

    // remove unnecessary items
    $wp_adminbar->remove_node(‘wp-logo’);
    $wp_adminbar->remove_node(‘bp-login’);
    $wp_adminbar->remove_node(‘site-name’);
    $wp_adminbar->remove_node(‘new-media’);
    }

    // admin_bar_menu hook action if not admin
    if (! is_user_logged_in()) {
    add_filter(‘show_admin_bar’, ‘__return_false’);}
    elseif ( is_user_logged_in() && ! current_user_can( ‘publish_forums’ )) {
    add_action(‘admin_bar_menu’, ‘my_update_adminbar’, 999);}
    elseif ( is_user_logged_in() && current_user_can( ‘publish_forums’ )) {
    add_action(‘admin_bar_menu’, ‘my_update_adminbar_modo’, 999);}
    elseif ( current_user_can( ‘manage_options’ ) ) {
    add_filter(‘show_admin_bar’, ‘__return_true’);
    }’
    Thx
