Any way to turn the new side bars off?
« on: January 03, 2016, 08:00:50 PM »
Could we have an option to turn them off please? They make the screen shot area in posts even smaller so have to side scroll more.

we're working on the settings to keep them compact, but they're likely staying put, especially the one for the front page article feed.  hang on and let us tweak a bit

It's like they want people to read the front page or something.

I refreshed shortly after the updates started and the post updates that are now at the top were on the side.  I liked it better there.

I liked it better on the side.  It seemed to make it less cluttered.
