    Hi,

    Your best bet would be to create a custom page template for your WordPress theme where you basically display the header and footer without the sidebar.

    Create three custom templates, sidebar, left sidebar and right sidebar, for your default page.php file in your wordpress theme make it so it doesn’t have any sidebars. Then by default bbpress will use this page to display the forum.

    You can use the following css,

    th.bbp-forum-info {
    	text-align: left;
    	width: 85%;
    }
    th.bbp-forum-topic-count, td.bbp-forum-topic-count {
    	text-align: center;
    	width: 5%;
    }
    th.bbp-forum-reply-count, td.bbp-forum-reply-count {
    	text-align: center;
    	width: 5%;
    }
    th.bbp-forum-freshness, td.bbp-forum-freshness {
    	text-align: center;
    	width: 5%;
    }

    Hi,

    Locate to the menu section in your WordPress admin and click the “Screen Options” link at the top of the page. Make sure the “Forums” checkbox is checked to show on screen.

    Hi,

    A couple of reasons why the shortcodes won’t work.

    1. Make sure the bbpress plugin is installed an activated.
    2. The theme strips out the any use of shortcodes in the write panel.

    Have you tried using the shortcodes in the “Text” panel rather than the “Visual” box?
