# Remove navigation bar but keep the frame numbering

I don't like the navigation bar to be display so I add \beamertemplatenavigationsymbolsempty to remove it, but it also remove the page numbering too. This is how I add the page numbering to the navigation bar.

\addtobeamertemplate{navigation symbols}{}{%
\usebeamerfont{footline}%
\usebeamercolor[fg]{footline}%
\hspace{1em}%
}
\setbeamercolor{footline}{fg=black}
\setbeamerfont{footline}{series=\bfseries}


Is there a way to remove the navigation bar but keep the frame numbering?

Thanks

\documentclass{beamer}

\usebeamerfont{footline}%
\usebeamercolor[fg]{footline}%
\hspace{1em}%
