Oh, c'mon- our new masters at Google know what you need better than you do.

Just lay back and enjoy the new world according to Google.

At the top of your template there is a (head) tag. Immediately under
that tag insert the following code-

(style type=text/css")

NOTE- replace the left/right brackets with the left/right arrows ( Haloscan won't allow me to display them properly) This NOTE is not part of the code

#b-navbar {

If you look at the code, you can see that it does nothing more than
take that first line and compress it down to one pixel and hide it.

This works with the original Blogger templates, I don't know if it works with the "upgraded" version, but can't imagine why not.

If you want to see an example of this, look at the Belmont Club page, or at my own page.

Sheesh, typos and general illiteracy all in one post. I'll never live it down.

(style type="text/css")

NOTE- this the proper line with All the quotation marks included. Also I should have said, replace the left/right parenthesis with left/right angle brackets. Of course, if you look at the page sources, you'll see the proper code.

I watched Marko switch, and his sitemeter disappeared.

"Out of beta" my ass.

No joy, rws. Blogger somehow is inserting the code for the nav bar where I can't override it in my template. The code shows on the page when I view the source, but does not show on the template edit page.

Kevin, that's why he's suggesting you use CSS to hide the div containing the navbar. You'll also need a (/style) tag after what he's had you insert.

No, it won't show up in your template because Blogger adds it as the page is generated (I think.) But the style tag should still hide it.

Nope, Rick. It doesn't seem to matter where I put that code (and I did close it with a (/style) command,) the navbar just doesn't want to go away.

Look as the source code for the page:

(style type="text/css")

#b-navbar {

(/style)(!-- --)(style type="text/css")@import url(http://www.blogger.com/css/navbar/classic.css);
div.b-mobile {display:none;}


The part starting (!-- --) is inserted after my CSS instruction and appears to override it. That's what inserts the nav bar, as far as I can see, and it comes as the last instruction before (/head). I can't seem to do anything about that.

One more suggestion, then, mark your block as important. IE seems to honor it.

#b-navbar {
visibility:hidden; !important
display:none !important

Actually looking at the view source of the page, I think they changed their coding--the navbar is now an iframe.
