    social media sidebar

    Is there a way of getting rid of the social media sidebar that has suddenly started appearing on the site pages? I don't do social media and I find it blocks my view and forces me to scroll unnecessarily. I use Firefox to view the site.

    I googled and found a solution (for Firefox). Install the extension Social Disconnect Plus.

    Thanks. The Chrome version got rid of my annoying sidebar.

    It doesn't work well under Chrome on my Android phone. In particular, it obscures the "OK" button in the window where you add a link. I've discovered I can fix this by changing my phone's orientation from portrait to landscape twice, but that's not a very satisfactory workaround.
    I am not a teacher.

    I've not got it- maybe it has gone.

    Re: social media sidebar

    Update: It was switched off for all forum users yesterday afternoon.
    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.

    I would like to extend my deepest sympathy. The memory of the social media sidebar will rest in our minds for some time to come.

    I hope the members here can finally find peace during this sensitive time.

    God bless.
