I have selected "hide sidebars when empty" in Pagelines site options, but the sidebars still show up with the message "Add Widgets".

Hi there,

Couple of things to check which could be causing this:

Do you have any caching plugins active which could be holding on to layout data after you've made changes?

Have you go any other plugins active, if you disable them does this resolve the issue? Could be a conflict somewhere.

I had recently installed W3 Total Cache, but have deactivated AND deleted. No change. I toggled the setting as well. No affect.
I'm down to the minimum, basic plugins.
Is there a place in the database which might be holding W3 cache data?

Incidentally, is there a way to disable the "add widgets!" sidebar that appears to the user, and replace it with a different default?
