How do I turn off the new sidebar feature thing?

I updated and now trello is unusable.  I get so much lag on everything; opening cards, replying to cards - everything.  Tried changing browsers with no luck.  It said I could turn it off in settings but there is no setting for this that I can find,  HELP!! Please :-)

Similar struggles here. I love the ideas behind the new sidebar, but it's making Trello unusable because everything takes so long to happen now.

Natalie:  It gives you the option to reset.  Finally back to normal

I'm searching for this solution as well. I can't for the life of me find a toggle to opt-out. 


Look, this feature is pretty cool, but 100% unusable since upgrading. At this point I'd rather have a bunch of sticky notes on my desk.

John, see my answer to Natalie above.

Can you give more details on why it’s unusable?

Just so much lag Michael.  On everything.  Open a card - 10 seconds.  Click reply - 10 seconds, write reply - 10 seconds to open the reply box - another 10 for the cursor to pop up, start writing and nothing, then 10 seconds later what you wrote starts appearing.  It's a nightmare.

And when you turned it off, it’s fixed?

I just turned it off following Andrew's instructions and so far so good. It doesn't take 10 seconds to take any action in there now.

Michael: It's 95% back to normal.
