zen toolbar hiding button separators for anonymous users


I'm evaluating the Zen foundation add on and I've managed to customize the toolbar presented to anonymous users. I'm wondering if there's a way to also remove the button separators that appear between the different sections of the toolbar. We need to remove most buttons except for search and expando button - but that leaves three separators in the toolbar.

Hi Dave,

The short answer is: yes! There is a way to remove those dividers. Unfortunately, there is not a direct method within the Brand Designer. You will instead need to add some custom CSS in your theme. If you inspect that toolbar, you'll notice that those dividers have the class "toolbar-spacer" and each has an addition class for where it is positioned.

You can add a display: none for any spacer you want to remove, and that should do the trick, as in the example below.

Please let us know if this is helpful!



#zen-toolbar .toolbar-spacer.expando-spacer {
display: none;

Hi Kelli,

Thanks for your response, that seems to be working well!

Another related question is: the fix removes the spacer for logged-in users and anonymous users alike. Is there any way to just remove the spacer for anonymous users only?
