The "Hide sidebar" checkbox in the [Nulumia] Sidebar Settings property group does not currently work.

After consideration, this setting has now been deprecated. The correct approach in Xenforo should be to remove all widgets from a widget position in order to not show that sidebar. Using an option to forcibly hide the sidebar with CSS is not ideal, as technically the sidebar and all contained widgets are still loaded on the page and available within the markup. A user could easily re-enable the sidebar by manipulating the CSS within their browser's console, so this option does not make much sense.

In theme versions 2.1.10+, it is recommended to use the correct method of removing all widgets from sidebars you wish to hide.
