What I am doing is to set the Home.aspx as the Homepage for my TeamSite. I've added a Web Part as Script Editor and put the jQuery script as below to remove or hide the left menu and the Home. However, whenever I click on the Logo, the link has been changed to a path /_layouts/15/start.aspx#/, the menu still appears. Please give me some advice to address my problem.

  1. Did I work in the right way?
  2. Is it impossible to make a Home.aspx as a Home page?
  3. How can I change the link in the Logo when I click on that?

    $("#DeltaPlaceHolderMain .s4-die").remove();

You got the Minimal Download Strategy feature activated, that's what "ruining" your URL, and it's also why the page Title and the menu is still showing.

Head to Site Settings > Site Features and deactivate Minimal Download Strategy.

And you could hide the elements using CSS instead.

<style type="text/css">
#sideNavBox {
display: none;
#contentBox {
margin-left: 220px;
display: none !important;

  • Thank you very much for you code. That works pretty well to me.

    Great! If you would like to make use of the whole page, just set #ContentBox to 20px instead of 220. This will give you a little more space to work with. :) Jun 30, 2015 at 15:27

You need to disable the Minimal Download Strategy feature for the script to work right.
