    The “visibility” function will let you control where and when widgets are displayed.

    If you visit your Dashboard > Appearance > Widgets and click on the ‘down arrow’ for a particular Widget, there should be a ‘Visibility’ button.

    From there, you will be presented with several drop-down boxes, if you’d like to hide that particular Widget on single post pages then you’d want to choose:

    “Hide” if “Page” is “All single posts”

    Perform that action for each Widget you have installed and they shouldn’t display on the individual post pages.

    Hope that helps.

    @gureggu: Unfortunately it won’t help. Cristobalshort wants to disable the whole sidebar, and this requires CSS editing. Your suggestion will make the widgets not show on single posts alright, but the result will be the default sidebar items of the theme in place of the added widgets.

    @cristobalshort: add this in the CSS editor:

    .single #tertiary {
        display: none;
    }
    .single #content {
        margin-right: 0 !important;
    }

    PS In the future make sure you post CSS questions in the CSS forum, not the Themes forum.

    @justpi: Works like a charm. :)

    Another solution (for those without the Custom Design upgrade) would be to follow the steps outlined earlier for Widget Visibility and add a blank text widget to the secondary sidebar for individual posts.

    That will remove the default theme sidebar, the downside is that your right-margin isn’t increased, the only benefit is that the widgets aren’t displayed.
