As per Drupal's updated site theme is ready for testing! the new theme is now live.

Don't like the new left sidebar, I find it distracting, what can I do?

You can still access the left navigation(see the screenshot), even you check the 'Hide left navigation' option from the preferences tab. enter image description here

Expanded Menu:

    By the way, I don't like the left navigation either :D – Krishna Mohan Dec 11 '18 at 11:55

You could go to your user page, click on "settings" tab and then on "preferences" and checkmark "Hide left navigation". But this is lame, you no longer have access to those links.

Don't worry, I got you covered. Use a Chrome CSS Extension, I've made it look very similar like before:

#left-sidebar {
  position: absolute;
  top: -78px;
  width: 100%;
  height: 80px;
  text-align: right !important;
  width: 100%;
  padding-right: 10%;
  z-index: 1;
.nav-links li{
  display: inline-block;
  padding: 0 1px;
.nav-links li a{ 
  padding: 6px 11px;
  border-radius: 20px;
  font-size: 14px;
  line-height: 1.3;
  text-decoration: none;
  color: white !important;
  position: relative;
  transition: color .15s ease,background .15s ease;
.wmx100 {
  position: relative;
  left: 100px;
.nav-links li a:hover{  
  background: #0077c0; 
  color:white !important;
.nav-links li a {
  padding-right: 10px !important;
  padding-left: 10px !important;
.site-header a {
  z-index: 2;
