No sidebar in Twenty eleven

    I cant get the Twenty eleven sidebar to show up on bbPress generated pages. It works well in pages and posts, with a little trouble also got it to work in BuddyPress generated pages, but still nothing in the forums, and disabling plugins doesn’t work. Does anyone know how to fix this? I have the recent versions for everything.

    P.S. This is the guide i used to get sidebar to show on Buddypress generated pages, perhaps there is some clue in those script changes? I don’t understand PHP so i wouldn’t know what to look for….

    Bump ( And marry Christmas! :)

    I’ve just confirmed that it works by doing the following:

    1. Create a page called “Forums” (or anything of your choosing)
    2. Add [bbp-forum-index] to the page content
    3. Set the Template to “Sidebar Template”

    That should do it.

    Merry Christmas!

    @FLOP2106 Did you follow the steps I outlined above?

    I apologize for this delayed answer, for some reason i never got any email notification that someone had answered this question, even though i ticked then box. At any rate, i tried your solution, but it did not work. I even deleted all cache and web browser cache, and tried the Twenty Eleven theme without my child theme, but still no dice. When i inspect the page code there simply isn’t a “Secondary” part to it, as there should be in order for the sidebar to appear… Any idea what could be wrong?

    Try making a copy of the Twenty Eleven page template sidebar-page.php file and rename it to bbpress.php
