Cannot disable rooms sidebar in phabricator (workaround: Press \ key)
Closed, InvalidPublic


Not sure why, but a sidebar (Screenshot here -

) about rooms appeared on Phabricator for my account, and I'm not sure how to hide it from the view. I've tried Applications->Conpherence - and the uninstall button is disabled for me. I also tried Settings->Application settings->Conpherence preferences, but there's nothing relevant.

If this is not a bug, it would be great to have documentation on how to disable this sidebar.

Hm, if I go to that page I don't get that bar. I have heard about it upstream but I have never seen it myself.

One difference is that I do have some Conpherence rooms created, but in that case I guess that I would see the rooms where you see the notice.

Well, I don't think it's page specific. It seems to be a setting associated with my user account. I can see the sidebar in all pages when I'm logged in, but not when I'm logged out.

I had that problem but don't remember how I managed to make it go away. :(
You have visited already I guess?

@Aklapper :( Yeah, no settings there either.

I'm having the same issue.

@mmodell, any ideas? Otherwise I think we should ask on the Phabricator IRC channel.

backslash key \ toggles it (and it's listed in the keyboard shortcuts reference, which you can show by typing ?)

This is the bug I filed upstream ( about the menu not having a exit button when I encounted that menu a while ago.
