How to hide the left sidebar totally?

http://d.pr/i/4SecC

How to hide the sidebar? We feel it's just cluttering the conversion of people actually sending us anything.

We want to emphasize the tabs and actions towards them.

Huge thanks!

For now on, if you remove all elements from the sidebar, the sidebar will disappear.

With a single space setup go to Settings > Space Page and disable the following settings:

  • We are Here to Help
  • New Members
  • Join Community (please note: this block is visible only to users, who are not logged in)
  • Space Selector
  • Channels List

If you have multiple spaces, you should also disable the following settings on Settings > Home Page:

  • Space Selector

Writing CSS is required to hide these elements anymore.

Thank you for asking, Daniel! This is something we're adding in the next update, which will be ready in a month or two. You'll be able to hide all elements from the sidebar and when you've done that the sidebar will disappear.

Ok thanks. This is not possible with CSS in the meantime?

Sure! Add these styles to CSS > Code section on the Settings > Customization page in the admin panel to hide the sidebar from all pages:

aside.layout__sidebar {
    display: none;
}
.layout__content {
    width: 100%;
}
.layout__content_in, .layout__data_right-sidebar .layout__content_in {
    padding-left: 0;
    padding-right: 0;
}

For now on, if you remove all elements from the sidebar, the sidebar will disappear.
