Creating separate forums for left and right sides of homepage

    WP 3.5.1 and BBP 2.2.4 http://www.gumpolen.com

    I would like, if possible, to have a widget on the left of my homepage for a support forum (topics of navigating my site, registering an account, creating a site, etc.), and on the right of my homepage a widget for public forums where anyone can join in and communicate. I don’t want these two forums to be connected with each other in any way.

    Do I accomplish this with Category or Forum? I’ve been trying several things, and I’m not getting the hang of it yet. Any bit of help would be most appreciated. Thank you.

    Best,

    Kevin

    Update

    I’ve placed one bbPress Forums List widget in both my left and right sidebars. On the left, I have assigned Forum ID 58 to display, and on the right, I have assigned Forum ID 56 to display. When I go to my homepage, neither of these widgets display at all. If I set either of the widgets to “any” then the widgets show and both forums are displayed in them.

    Shouldn’t I be able to use Forum IDs to specify one particular forum to show in that widget? Is this a permalink issue? I know I have the right ID# because it’s what shows at the bottom of my monitor when I hover over the particular forum title in “All Forums.”

    Any insight would be much appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Kevin

    Okay, I figured it out. This is pretty cool.
