What is the best method?

Ok so I have been scrounging around tutorials and such to figure out how to turn off side panels for certain pages. Actually the situation I am looking for is because of the Mantis Tracker pages i wish to display so it may be different for other cases I don't know but I was hoping for some clarification in case there are better methods.

What I have figured would be best for my situation is I make a NEW ZONE for my Feature Request pages and then edit the panels in that zone to be empty. This way the Mantis feature list is shown full width as seen here on Are there alternative methods that people would recommend in this situation or perhaps other situations like where I would put the page in a zone where I do want side panels on some pages but not on others?

I've searched for answers but that is seeming to take much longer than simply asking if anyone has recommendations.

ocPortal won't reserve space for panels if they are blank. You can therefore put code in there to contextually display the contents, e.g.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
