Are you looking for a way to add a delete button for your posts to the admin bar? While there’s probably a plugin for this, we have created a quick code snippet that you can use to add a delete button and delete posts from admin bar in WordPress.


All you have to do is add this code to your theme’s functions.php file or in a site-specific plugin:

add_action('register_form', 'register_message');
function register_message() {
    $html = '
        <div style="margin:10px 0;border:1px solid #e5e5e5;padding:10px">
            <p style="margin:5px 0;">

    echo $html;
