  1. Upon request:

    The main sidebar is now switchable using a filter in your functions.php:


    function kill_sidebar() {
    return FALSE;
    }
    add_action('thematic_sidebar', 'kill_sidebar');

    This will remove the sidebar everywhere on your blog. If you want to remove it only on a certain page, you can use this one:


    function kill_sidebar() {
    if (is_page('1') {
    return FALSE;
    } else {
    return TRUE;
    }
    }
    add_action('thematic_sidebar', 'kill_sidebar');

    Keep in mind that this will completely prevent the execution of sidebar.php

    Cheers,

  2. I'm getting an error using the second piece of code. I've tried different page ids. Seems to work fine without the page selection. Any ideas?

    <?php
    function kill_sidebar() {
    if (is_page('7') {
    return FALSE;
    } else {
    return TRUE;
    }
    }
    add_action('thematic_sidebar', 'kill_sidebar');
    ?>

    EDIT: missing a bracket, problem solved.

  3. It seems a closing parenthesis is missing in the example. The if line should read:

    if (is_page('1')) {

    Edit: Didn’t notice your EDIT. :-D
