Turn off Sidebar
If you do not wish to have a sidebar, you must ensure that no elements are assigned to the sidebar. Any element that has a number value in it’s setting will show in the chosen sidebar. The number value is the priority level, meaning if you set the Table of Contents to 1 value it will be displayed first at the top of the sidebar.
In the screenshot below you can see that the TOC Location and Widget Location is set to “Not Displayed” this will then tell the right sidebar not to display anything.
