The goal is simple: make the discussion slide-out always visible in the discussion.
Normally, I would just use CSS, but this bug prevents me from doing that: flarum/core#1993
My question is: is there any possible way I could make that sidebar always visible (or at least for the PR to be merged)? Pure CSS/JS solution is preferred. I am creating a CSS snippet that modifies the Flarum look to become a chat-like app, such as Discord, and the sidebar would be perfect for channel/room list. I already got it working when the sidebar "exists", but when I reload the discussion/go directly to it, it disappears, and that's obviously not what I want.
I'm not an extension developer, but could an extension make this possible? This would be my last option, since I'm not looking for an extension/extend.php modification, but rather a CSS/JS solution (the custom ones from the admin panel).
