In 3.4, there was a little "x" you could click to make the sidebar go away on the home page. On version 4, I can't figure out how to make the sidebar go away.
By home page do you mean the Forum Category view?
When you are logged in there is a little arrow on the left side.
Click that and you can add/remove blocks in the forum sidebar.
By default there is a Database block added, delete this and it should eliminate the sidebar.
ps, I just discovered this a minute ago... :)
Make sure you also hit "Finish Editing" In the lower left.
Thanks for the quick reply.
Yes, forum Category View.
I can't find an arrow on the left side.
Is it visible in the attached screenshot?
I don't see it there. Are you logged in as the Admin? I don't see AdminCP above Sign Out in that drop down.
Oh sorry, I confused you by leaving out this important detail... I'm just a member of the IP community forums - not an admin. And for my forums, I have not updated from 3.4.7 to 4, yet. So that sounds like an Admin only controllable feature.
In 4.0 it's all admin-defined - users can't toggle the sidebar themselves.
Ooops sorry I misunderstood.
Ignore me, carry on.
In 4.0, can an Admin set it so the users can toggle the sidebar?
I'm afraid not - but it might be possible with a third-party hook. I'm sure one would be available in due course.
Thanks again Rikki. And yes, a hook would be nice - if I wasn't Admin I'd HATE not being able to turn off the sidebar.
