Hiding the backlink counter & pencil

What I’m trying to do

I’m trying to move the status bar slightly to the right.

Things I have tried

My CSS snippet currently looks like this:

.status-bar {
    position: relative;

Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to do anything. Is there something wrong with my code?

Move it right? Isn’t it already locked to the bottom/right? Do you use a non-default theme, which changes that?

Update: The .status-bar refers to the entire bottom line, and it seems to be in a static position. What do you want to change the position of? The various elements within the status bar? If so, they seem to be of the class status-bar-item with some additional classes to match their origin.

The word count is related to the class plugin-word-count, and it’s display property is flex. So maybe if you want to have more air around it you need to change the padding or margin of that element?

I need to get better at reading the request, I think. If you’re wanting to explicitly hide the backlink counter and pencil (aka the status mode indicator), you can do something like:

.status-bar-item.plugin-editor-status {
  display: none;

And the second one, related to the editor status, could also been turned off by disabling Settings > Editor > Editor status. Which in case would make it redundant in the CSS.

Also the Commander community plugin lets you hide status bar items.
