Help with width of forum – new to bbPress

    Hi

    I’ve recently installed bbPress plugin to my WordPress blog and am having a few problems. Wondered if somebody could help me please.

    The forum index is fine – added using shortcode to a page on the website:

    http://bristolornithologicalclub.co.uk/?page_id=926

    But viewing the forum and it seems to use a page template with a sidebar. I would like it full width.

    http://bristolornithologicalclub.co.uk/?forum=2011-sightings

    As my php skills are non existent I asked the theme developer for help and he came back with the following:

    “Yesterday I installed the plugin and checked things. The plugin has many template files and it is difficult to figure out which template is ‘exactly’ used for the forum page. May be they are custom post types/taxonomies.

    Further, we will need to implement the full width for topics, forum, author and other such pages. If you could ask the plugin authors about any specific hook, I can help you out further. You just need to ask them how to detect whether the current page is from bbPress plugin. (Any post type or page type hook).”

    Any help gratefully appreciated.

    Best wishes

    Paul
