How to remove the Navbar on your Blog

I am very happy to say that I have received numerous emails in regards to my Google Apps presentation at the 2009 eTech Ohio Educational Tech. Conf. (see Google Pres. below the video) I've had quite a few email me about disabling the NavBar. Below is a great YouTube video that will walk you through how to disable the NavBar Search. Not that we don't love this feature, but from experience, I know this discourages plenty of teachers and educators from creating classroom blogs. I also included below the written instructions for those of us that aren't visual learners :)
*note, once you disable the bar you will need to go to to sign into your dashboard for editing. *
Please comment back if you have ANY questions. Have fun!

1. Open your Blogger dashboard.
2. Go to your blog’s Layout settings > Edit HTML
3. Look for:
/* Variable definitions
4. And above that add:
#navbar-iframe { display: none !important; }
5. Make sure to save your settings and open your blog now. The navigation bar will be gone.
6. To show that this works, take a look at the top of my blog, no search bar :)
