Plugin: WordPress Admin Bar Improved
WordPress Admin Bar Improved has come a long way since it was updated to work with the new Admin Bar from WordPress 3.1. It went from making the admin bar visible on the homepage and adding a login form to something much more. Now it allows you to hide the admin bar with a slide animation so you can just hide it while navigating the site, without turning it off completely; it’s also added in AJAX search to the search form, as well as AJAX login. It’s also being used more and more by popular WordPress devs around the world. I just recently noticed the plugin was in use over at DevPress. I’ll count that as a win!
Now in WordPress 3.3, there are a bunch of API changes that require updates to the way this plugin functions. With that in mind, the latest version of this plugin, version 3.3.5, will NOT be backward compatible with WordPress 3.2.1 and earlier. If you need this plugin, and you’re using a version of WordPress prior to 3.3, then you need to use version 3.3.4 of this plugin, which can be downloaded here. And just to make sure your site doesn’t break, I’ve added a check to make sure you are using WordPress 3.3, otherwise the latest version of WPABI won’t even activate.
