  • I am going to guess you mean the meebo IM bar. Click on privacy + settings at the top of any CM page. Sign in if you are asked to, then scroll down to about half way. You will see Show CafeMom Instant Messenger: Make sure the drop down menu shows never and then click save. That will hide it. However when you want to use it you will have to reset it the same way.

  • It's the whole bar at the bottom...usually an ad in the far left-now is of Sprint, then Data plan info, share page, recent/popular, hot topics, the blank space, then friends online or not, then a beacon symbol, then the last thing is some circle with a stick on the end and it's right in that right corner where a check mark will appear to hide the whole bottom bar if I want to....which I ALWAYS want to...I can't stand that stuff at the bottom....I've hidden it many times, but lately as soon as it pops up and I try quickly to get to it to click on that check mark to hide the bar...some times I can click on it and when I do it just goes back to that other symbol and leaves that bar of info there. sigh.....
    Hope that explains it better....I just don't get why it won't work anymore. Thanks gals!!
