How to delete the side bar from ojs3

Hi ,
Thank you for your help
I’m looking for how to delete the right sidebar from journals , not removing items , just deleting the entire sidebar.
Thank you

Have you considered using CSS to hide the sidebar div via a display: none?

Hi @Alibi_Elmehdi,

Actually, when you remove all items from the sidebar, it shouldn’t add any of the HTML markup to the page.

I’m guessing that what you want to do is make the main content panel full width? Or maybe center it? To do either of these things, you’ll need some experience with CSS code.

For instance, the following CSS code would center the main panel:

@media(min-width: 992px) {
  .pkp_structure_main {
    float: none;
    margin-left: auto;
    margin-right: auto; 

But you’d still have the left and right borders of that panel. So really making a journal look good centered will take writing a bit more CSS – even more so if you want all the content to be full width rather than just centered.

Automatically adjusting for this is something I’d like to add to the default theme in the future. I did it with a child theme I’ve been working on and I think it looks quite nice with no sidebar at all.
