Collapsible channel list

    This is badly needed on the desktop app and browser. The server list and channel list take up about 20-25% of the total UI space yet are typically not used more than a few times a session to switch channel.

     

    In my own personal use case i switch channels about 3 times a day and use discord about 12 hours a day. the channel and server list takes up 25% of the real estate and restricts me from shrinking the UI down to reclaim monitor space.

    I can't believe this isn't a feature yet.

    If Discord is meant for gamer chat, it makes sense that it should be able to fit in nooks and crannies on the screen. A collapsible channel column would go a looong way to improve this aspect. I'd even go so far as to shrink the server icon column to 30-50 % of its current width when in this compact mode. Hovering over the servers could pop it out a bit, and clicking on a server could pop out the channel column when you switch, then hide itself once you choose a channel or the window loses focus.

    I'm not saying this a permanent solution as this is something that should be simple to implement but for my use I made a userstyle CSS sheet.

    It will collapse the width to 10px when it's not being hovered over.

    For anyone that wants to use it it available from here

    I recommend installing the Stylus extension as the Stylish one has been know to steal user data.

    I've also added the option to shrink the server list. This is configurable when you install the style.

    Please make this happen. Its my number one gripe with the UI.

    There is so much space that could be saved by allowing us to collapse both the user list and the channel list. There's really no reason not to allow this.

    @haunter

    I have updated my style to allow you to shrink the server list as well.

    In fact, this collapse menu can be really useful!
    I know a person that has less than 5% of vision, and use discord in small resolution. Probably because the usability software to read the screen for him, but the central column is awful to read.

    It will be very helpful I think.

    How the heck is this not highly requested? Do people not like more screen real-estate?

    Please add this feature! I'm a minimalist and the lack of total control over the UI Display is triggering me. Thanks.

    Considering how old this request is and how Discord's dev team has completely ignored it, this will not happen any time soon.

    Please add this.  Waste of real estate once you're in the correct channel.

    I turned my second monitor vertical to help with workflow now that we're doing shelter in place. I also have my personal pc on the same monitors. It would help in both work and play if the channel and online/offline columns, at the very least the channel column, collapsed. As it stands currently, the layout is cluttered and feels cramped on my vertical display. This is the only app I use that doesn't have this feature.

    Please make this happen. The Discord chat web application is HUGE. I hate using it for that reason alone. Fixing this would fix 99.99% of problems for me.

    Yes! Add it please! It would also greatly benefit me to have a simpler screen and not have so many distractions. I love discord so far!

    I agree, it would be a very welcome change, and probably a very simple one to implement !

    Really surprised this isn't already a feature. Using Discord on mobile web browser is great, but the channel pane is taking up too much screen space.

    Please, Discord. The Server list on the left side of the screen really takes up much of the space. Please make this feature collapsible - more real estate!!!!

    I really hope you add this very soon <3

    I agree that a collapsible server list would be very helpful, it actually takes up a lot of space.

    bummer, the workaround for now is to drop the desktop app, use the website and remove the sidebar div with a css rule

  • Discorder

    fczuardi that is a great idea, there is no way to do that on iOS Firefox right?

    There's a Chrome extension called Hide Discord Sidebar. It doesn't hide it completely but it definitely helps

    I think it's safe to say people are looking for this in the desktop client.
