I am working on a new site but I need for the blog sidebar to be removed entirely. Is this possible. As of right now every theme that I have attempted to use is not allowing to have a full width blog without the sidebar.

Yes, In Impacto go to Appearance → Theme Options and check "Hide Sidebar on Blog":

In Impacto the default theme is centered and is not wide enough for what I am trying to do. The lightfast theme is wide enough but I can't seem to get rid of the sidebar.

Lightfast is built on the latest new customizer features which is somewhat limiting in what we can use for "options".

The hooks are fairly easy to use.

For example, to hide the sidebar on the blog home page, just add the following to your lightfast child theme functions.php:

function child_set_colwidth() {
    
if (is_home()) {
        
return 'sixteen';
    
}
}
add_filter
('skeleton_set_colwidth','child_set_colwidth',11 );
