make my sidebar look like bbpress.org forum sidebar

  • I would like to make my sidebar look like bborg sidebar

    So with a Forum List

    Search Box

    Hot Tags

    RSS

    Views

    and maybe even add a Latest Discussions

    which shows the last five or ten active threads

    in WP you just add widgets but bb does not seem to have that luxury

    Thanks for your help

    Hi Gideons,

    I’m not really sure what you’re after here.

    Are you wanting someone to give you a theme, or write the code for you to put in your own theme?

    Kev

    Either way

    If the theme from BBpress/Forums

    is available great that woudl give me 85% of what I need

    otherwise the code and an explanation where to stick it, I guess

    although I am not a coder

    thanks

    I guess I just figured out something important thanks to another question kevinjohngallagher answered. Kakumai does not have a sidebar!

    I did not realize, stupid me!

    Anyway, I guess I am then looking to add a sidebar with the functions above or find another nice and simple theme, like bborg?

    Gideon

    Update:

    I have selected another theme terrafirmtwo by bbterminal.net

    this one has a sidebar! (it actually ahs a sidebar.php file)

    but in the sidebar it only shows: Tags

    While I want to show:

    frontpage

    Forum List

    Search Box

    Hot Tags

    RSS

    Views

    forum

    Search Box

    Info

    Tags

    RSS

    any help appreciated I can upload the sidebar.php file if needed

    If you want it like this site…. An easy way to do it is…

    the front page of the default theme is broken into two parts.

    If you open front-page.php serach for these div codes, everything on the left is between “id=”hottags” role=”main””

    Everything on the right is between “div id=”discussions”” JUst move what you want in them.

    All you have to do is adjust the width/margin of both css styles.

    style.css (line 285) #front-page #hottags for the left side change the width

    style.css (line 293) #front-page #discussions change margin left to be 20px more than what you pick for the left column width and the width to fit.

    (Why doesn’t this site have a demo on bbpress! I hate changing my theme back to default to answer questions!)
