Slim Sidebar?
Hide New Labels?


Fixes tumblr's flat sidebar. This version has no colours embedded, so that it has a 'glass' type appearance in most custom dashboard themes. It should, ideally, integrate seamlessly.

If you're having spacing issues such as seen in http://forum.userstyles.org/uploads/FileUpload/cc/a6a27e3d9ac95442f5213adc51b850.jpg provided by http://forum.userstyles.org/profile/98333/hideheader, try choosing 'no' on the "Slim Sidebar?" option. It's also important that you select 'no' if you use XKit's option to slim the sidebar instead. Otherwise, it's highly suggested you keep the sidebar slimmed as the buttons are horribly large by default.

Hide New Labels option refers to the headers that say "account" and "recommended blogs". Just select 'no' to keep them, and they'll be styled appropriately to look right rather than hidden.

June 17, 2016 - The 'slim sidebar' option now undoes the ridiculous design change wherein the sidebar is gigantic and the posts are off-center. Doesn't have code to style the ad because I can't be assed to turn of ABP to see what the class/ID for said ads might be.

This is already installed and colour-coordinated on dashboard themes that I made; there's no need to install it if you're using one of my dash themes.

If you do not use a custom theme, then use the twin of this style, found http://freestyler.ws/style/89087/tumblr-sidebar-fix. That one is colour-coordinated for tumblr to closely mimic the old sidebar style.

Should now work with SSL security enabled.
