Can I use custom code to remove the Sidebar Navigation panel on certain pages only?

You can remove the folder navigation with some CSS. The folder navigation has the unique ID 'folderNav', so setting this to be hidden (display:none) should achieve this. 

Here's the CSS wrapped in some style tags. You should be able to add this to the Advanced page settings of each page where you want this to be hidden. To find this, click the gear icon next to each page name in the PAGES panel.

<style>
  #folderNav {
    display: none!important;
  }
</style>

Thanks Paul - that worked to remove the Sidebar! I really appreciate your help!!!

I wonder if you can help with the next issue now...

It seems like there is empty space on the right of the page.

This is the page content on the main part of the website:

Now here it is in the Members Area:

Any ideas about how to fix this???

I'm trying to set up a Member Area and while I keep hitting issues, I'm persisting for now...

The current problem is that the page appears to have empty space on the right hand side. 

This is what the page looks like on the general site:

And this is what the page looks like in the Member Area.

I currently have this custom code on the page:

<style>
#header, #mobile.bar {
display: none;
}
#preFooter {
display: none;
}
#footer {
display: none;
}
#folderNav {
display: none!important;
}
</style>

 

Any ideas about what is going on here and how I can fix it?

For the community to help, we'll need to have access to the page. If the page is within a Member Area, we'd need you to provide us with a member account so that we can access it. 

If your issue does not involve custom code (you can temporarily remove your code to confirm this) then I recommend you get in touch with Squarespace Customer Care. They'll have full access to your site and should be able to help you to troubleshoot this. You can reach out to them here.

Thanks Paul,

The one change to the CSS on this Members Area page is the folderNav code you gave me above.

I tried removing all of the custom code to see if that fixed the issue. The blank space on the right did indeed disappear but of course all the other elements that I want to get rid of (main site header, prefooter, footer and folder navigation) were all back which may just have confused the issue for me.

As you can tell, I do not know anything about CSS and have pieced this together from google searches and forum questions... I'm clearly completely out of my depth!!! 😫

Add this within the style tags on the affected page(s) and let me know how you get on:

.collection-type-page:not(.hide-page-sidebar) #folderNav+#content {
  width: 100%;
}

I would like to use the Sidebar Folder navigation for this page (and the others listed on the page on the main site) but I DON'T want to show every page in the Members Area. Is there a way to remove the first five pages from the Sidebar navigation?
