Hide sidebar to specific user (confluence 6.6)

Hello

I created this user macro to completely hide sidebar (I don't want the sidebar to be seen in any way) in Confluence 6.6.1 

## Macro Name: hide-sidebar
<script>
$(window).load(function() {
$('body#com-atlassian-confluence.theme-default.aui-layout.aui-theme-default div#page div#full-height-container div.ia-splitter div.ia-fixed-sidebar').hide();
$('body#com-atlassian-confluence.theme-default.aui-layout.aui-theme-default div#page div#full-height-container div.ia-splitter div#main.aui-page-panel').css('margin-left', '0');
});
</script>

This is applied to a single Space in "Look & Feel" -> "Sidebar, header & footer" area, using wiki markup.

How can I change this user macro in order to apply it only to a specific user? I mean something like this

if (user-info:username =="Charlie") then

Thank you in advance

Hi Stefano, 

this should do it:

## @noparams

#set( $username = "$req.getRemoteUser()" )
#if($username.equals("Charlie"))
<script>
$(window).load(function() {
$('body#com-atlassian-confluence.theme-default.aui-layout.aui-theme-default div#page div#full-height-container div.ia-splitter div.ia-fixed-sidebar').hide();
$('body#com-atlassian-confluence.theme-default.aui-layout.aui-theme-default div#page div#full-height-container div.ia-splitter div#main.aui-page-panel').css('margin-left', '0');
});
</script>
#else
do-nothing
#end

It works perfectly!

I only deleted the " #else do-nothing" rows because text "do-nothing" can be written into the page.

Thank you very much Thomas! :)

What project did you transition or start on Confluence with the shift to remote work?

It’s been great to hear from fellow users over the last few weeks about the best tips and fun moments you’ve had working on Confluence since the transition to working remote. I’d love to keep the c...
