Bye, Bye Blank Sidebar

Written by Paul Steinbrueck

Most WP-EZ Website Builder themes enable the user to place things in a right sidebar. But what happens when there’s nothing in the sidebar?

Previously, the sidebar area would be empty. The page content would end an inch or two from the right side of the website, making it uncentered with respect to the website’s header as shown in the screenshot below. That’s just how the themes worked.

However, our brilliant development team figured out how to improve on that and launched the change today. Now, if a website has an empty sidebar it will automatically hide the sidebar and expand the page content the full width of the site as shown below.

Want to put a widget or two into the right sidebar later? No problem. All themes automatically adjust as shown below.

If you’re using WP-EZ and still see an empty sidebar, make sure you clear your web browser cache or do a hard refresh (control-F5).
