    I finally got it to go away like this

    if (is_bbpress ())

    if ( is_active_sidebar( ‘social-icons’ ) || is_active_sidebar( ‘click-here’ ) || is_active_sidebar( ‘split-sidebar-left’ ) || is_active_sidebar( ‘split-sidebar-right’ )) {

    but it removes it sitewide



    It’s with the conditional, I have the sticky social icons on the right side on all my pages fixed. Don’t know if that is causing it to stay cause I just can’t seem to remove it from the forums pages, are there any alternatives to displaying a login section? As I said this genesis child theme does not have a registered sidebar, however I went in and registed the primary and secondary sidebar just so I could get the log in on there, but with that fixed widget in the way, it just pushes that sidebar off the left of the sticky widget.



    thanks. I tried that and it did not work.
    I also tried
    if (!is_bbpress ())
    remove_action ( ‘genesis_after_header’, ‘the_411_extras’, ‘genesis_after_sidebar_widget_area’ );
    if ( is_active_sidebar( ‘social-icons’ ) || is_active_sidebar( ‘click-here’ ) || is_active_sidebar( ‘split-sidebar-left’ ) || is_active_sidebar( ‘split-sidebar-right’ )) {

    if (!is_bbpress (‘forums’))

    if ( is_active_sidebar( ‘social-icons’ ) || is_active_sidebar( ‘click-here’ ) || is_active_sidebar( ‘split-sidebar-left’ ) || is_active_sidebar( ‘split-sidebar-right’ )) {

    with and without the forums part. nothing seems to remove it.



    Hello, I am using genesis theme the-411 which has no sidebars just a fixed widget area to the right showing social icons. The site is forced full width but the container sit at about 800px I am trying to remove that from showing on the forums page and instead show a a login for bbpress. Not sure how to go about doing this. I tried the If conditional tag on there but it does not seem to work.

    here is the code
    //* Hook social icons and click here widget areas
    add_action( ‘genesis_after_header’, ‘the_411_extras’, ‘genesis_after_sidebar_widget_area’ );
    function the_411_extras() {

    if ( is_active_sidebar( ‘social-icons’ ) || is_active_sidebar( ‘click-here’ ) || is_active_sidebar( ‘split-sidebar-left’ ) || is_active_sidebar( ‘split-sidebar-right’ )) {

    echo ‘<div class=”site-extras”>’;

    genesis_widget_area( ‘social-icons’, array(
    ‘before’ => ‘<div class=”social-icons”>’,
    ‘after’ => ‘</div>’
    ) );

    genesis_widget_area( ‘click-here’, array(
    ‘before’ => ‘<div class=”click-here”>’,
    ‘after’ => ‘</div>’
    ) );
    genesis_widget_area( ‘split-sidebar-left’, array(
    ‘before’ => ‘<div class=”split-sidebar-left”>’,
    ‘after’ => ‘</div>’,
    ) );
    genesis_widget_area( ‘split-sidebar-right’, array(
    ‘before’ => ‘<div class=”split-sidebar-right”>’,
    ‘after’ => ‘</div>’,
    ) );

    echo ‘</div>’;

    if (is_bbpress( ‘forums’ ) ) {
    /** Remove default sidebar */
    remove_action( ‘genesis_after_sidebar_widget_area’ );



    I added the split right and left, but I only use the right for search box. Thanks!


    I’ve spent a long time looking through fixes, and nothing has worked for me so far. Currently I am trying to set up a forum/website. I am using the Twenty Fifteen theme with bbPress, except I am currently on a child theme so I can make changes safely.

    The site portion looks fine, but the forum looks awkward:

    View post on

    I would like to stretch out the forum side of this page so the posts take up more space. I don’t want to be scrolling constantly, especially with much larger posts. I think the best way to do this is removing the sidebar from the forum section. After the sidebar is gone, however, I don’t just want the right section to be centered and be the same size. I want it to take up the whole page. I understand this makes accessibility across the site a bit more difficult, but I can figure something out later.



    EDITED: I first added the second code snippet you provided, then realized I needed to other one, so I deleted that second snippet and used the first at the end of the functions.php file in my child theme. It does not place a small “edit profile” link centered at the top of my forum main page, which is a help (thanks), but it also places the following text at the bottom of my members home page when logged in: “Click edit button to change this code.”

    That is not a clickable link and it is also not in the right location. Also, I can’t see where that specific text is being defined to edit the wording, which I’d want if it was a working link. It would be great to also have the edit link on the members home page, not just the forum main page, or even better to be able to add it to the sidebar that shows on all member area pages, but at least I’d like to remove this text from the non-forum page.

    Thanks in advance if you can sort this.



    That did not work. I still have the wrong widget showing up. The added page is displaying – I know because I added some text to test it, and even though I change the sidebar to the one I want the incorrect one is still showing up. I even tried to remove it and make the page full width and that did not work – the wrong sidebar is still there. Sure hope someone can help me solve this.




    I have:
    WP 4.4.2
    bbPress 2.5.8
    BuddyPress 2.4.3
    Karma theme 3.0.3

    Please see my forum home page here:

    What I want to do is hide the “white area” with the logo and menu (products, gallery, etc.) ONLY on bbpress forum pages, not the rest of the non-forum pages. Here is the code for my bbPress.php page created from copying another template page and saving it in my child theme (as instructed).

    Can anyone tell me what to edit/remove from this page to just remove the home menu, but LEAVE the main top menu (home, about us, client sites) in blue?

    I have tried several things and can’t seem to get anywhere.

    Thanks in advance!!!

    Hi there

    I am using WordPress Version 4.4.2 and BBPress v2.5.8. I am using a magazine theme called Soledad which allows a number of custom sidebars.

    After setting the forum root to community (and I removed the shortcode from a page) and seeing that I did not have a sidebar, I created a new bbpress.php in a child theme to enable it.

    At first the sidebar was showing as the default one on the main forum index and the individual forums and topics were showing a custom side bar that I had assigned to posts (it shows the author bio)

    After I installed BB WP Tweaks, the main forum index page is showing the correct side bar after adding in the widgets into the BBPress sidebar. However, individual forums and topics are still showing the sidebar assigned to post.

    Any help much appreciated. I have read the how to page on setting up specific sidebars, but not luck.




    i am trying to remove the sidebar from all of the forum pages. i went through the bbpress template files under templates>extras folder and removed:

    <?php get_sidebar)(); ?>

    but they are still showing. is there anything else i can do? i am using simple mag theme.

    thank you!


    So I managed to remove the right sidebar of bbPress by duplicating the “page.php” file and renaming it “forum.php” and dropping that into my parent theme folder. No more sidebar…

    BUT now the bbPress breadcrumb is right behind the Page Title (overlapping). Is there any way to correct this?




    Bumped into an issue that i can’t seem to figure out. Please help.

    I have a wp blog(matheson theme) and a bbpress forum.

    Trying to remove the sidebar from posts but keep it on side in the forum.

    When i go to customize menu there is an option to make the posts 100% width. The sidebar moves to the bottom instead of going away. So i went to single.php and removed <?php get_sidebar(); ?> which removes it all together. Great, or so i thought.

    The issue is now the forum is full-width and the sidebar is on the bottom instead of the side.

    any suggestions would be much appreciated. the site is

    I’ve checked all the setting options on the associated plugins but can’t find anything that could be causing the problem. Sending a test message from postman SMTP works and the site is providing admin messages re users changing passwords etc. Seams only bbP that doesn’t want to comunicate.
    Any help greatly appreciated. Cheers, Eugene




    I’m new to both wordpress and bbpress, and am having a few problems customzing a theme for my forums.

    I am copying ‘page.php’ (or ‘index.php’ in the case of stargazer) to ‘bbpress.php’ and editing that.

    Mainly, I just want to get rid of the posts/navbar stuff and have full width forums. However, I seem to need to remove get_footer() to achieve this (there doesn’t seem to be a get_nav() or get_sidebar() in either theme I’ve tried) – but doing this causes odd side effects.

    In the case of the ‘stargazer’ theme, removing the footer causes extra ‘>’ chars to be inserted into the forum breadcrumb trail. Forums are still only about 60% of page width too.

    In the case of the ‘twentyfifteen’ theme, it causes the theme to go into some weird mode where a bunch of HUGE links suddenly appears on the left of the page.

    Can anyone suggest a good ‘starter’ theme for me to play with, along with possibly hints for how to get a ‘clean’ forum page?

    Apart from this, setting up bbpress has been a breeze!




    I have read other posts regarding the alignment of bbPress after removing the R side bar in a theme. I would like to center the forum on this page. Any help would be appreciated.


    WP version 4.4
    Theme Twenty Sixteen 1.0
    bbPress version 2.5.8-5815
    bbp style pack 2.8.4
    bbP Toolkit 1.0.5

    I created bbpress.php and placed it in the theme root dir to remove the R sidebar.

    get_header(); ?>
    <div id="main-content">
    	<div class="container">
    		<div id="content-area" class="clearfix">
    			<?php while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?>
    				<article id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>" <?php post_class(); ?>>
    					<h1 class="main_title"><?php the_title(); ?></h1>
    					<div class="entry-content">
    					<?php the_content(); ?>
    					</div> <!-- .entry-content -->
    				</article> <!-- .et_pb_post -->
    			<?php endwhile; ?>
    		</div> <!-- #content-area -->
    	</div> <!-- .container -->
    </div> <!-- #main-content -->
    <?php get_footer(); ?>


    Hi all,

    I am a newbie so I am sorry if this is an easy answer however I have not been able to find the answer or in the documentation.

    I am setting up a forum on a small site and have installed bbpress. I am wondering how to remove the sidebar and add the correct sidebar for the forum options (login, register, search etc.) also is it possible to place these options above the forum? I was watching a tutorial on youtube which showed the sidebar added automatically after the install of bbpress but it may have been an older version.

    I am currently using the latest wordpress 4.4, bbpress 2.5.8 and the esteem template. I did try to use twenty fourteen and twenty sixteen temprorarily but couldn’t add the sidebar under widgets as there was no bbpress sidebar.






    It is blank on the forum root because of the theme. Use this bbpress.php file I just created and plop it in your theme preferably a child theme to fix that issue. I also fixed an issue where the user profiles also lead to a blank page.

    It also makes your forums full-width, I didn’t really know if you wanted full-width forums but I just created you full-width forums haha. (I could change it to a sidebar layout if want.)

    For the top level I created a Forum called Apple Tech Talk Forums.Under that, I have forums for General Discussion, Hardware and Software. Those forums point to the Apple Tech talk Forums as the Parent.

    You do not need to do that anymore since I just fixed the forum root page for you.

    Within those forums I have set up categories like Desktop, Portable, etc. It’s within those categories that topics would be created.

    I think it is better for you to have Software as a category and say IOS as a forum for example.

    I tried to remove the Apple Tech Talk Forums from the Forums list but then I get a 404 error if I go to the Forums tab on the site.

    Just change the menu link url to a custom link that leads to /forums on your site.

    Do you want full width forums and just the sidebar placed under the forums??

    If you do remove this part of the CSS code.

    .bbpress .sidebar {
      width: 0;
      display: none;

    i can tell you are also using a full width template from your theme, and of course that will hide the sidebar.



    Hello everyone,

    I’m running bbpress with the BrickYard theme and I’m use the right sidebar.

    Actually I was able to display the sidebar to all of my blog but the forum : I deleted the line “<?php get_sidebar(); ?>” from the file page.php then I saved it under the name of “bbpress.php”.

    It works but the forum isn’t at a full width :

    And I tried to get the full width but I’m not able to, after some hours I give up.

    I read the documentation of the theme, there is a “template-full-width.php” within the theme but it doesn’t work because it’s page.php without the line that gets the sidebar and that I removed so the problem is still there (I believe that it should auto-resize without the sidebar but it’s not the case).

    Best regards,

    PS : Sorry about my crappy english.



    Please, I removed BBPress Login Widget from the right sidebar. I placed another login widget from a different plugin author. But, it is still showing in the right sidebar in the front end, and the other login widget is not showing.
    Any help as to how to permanently remove the BBPress Login widget?




    In reply to: bbPress Shortcode



    Try this custom CSS to see if it would help make your forums full width.

    @media and (min-width: 992px) {
     .bbpress .col-md-8 {
        width: 100%;

    Use this to completely remove the sidebar with CSS.

    @media and (min-width: 992px) {
    .bbpress .col-md-4 {
         width: 0;
         display: none;


    Never mind… this post helped 🙂


    In reply to: Full width and sidebar


    Step by step might be this

    • Install What the File.
    • Go to your bbPress page with the sidebar, and with what the file activated you look in your WOrdPress toolbar and see what bbPress template file it is.
    • Then find the file in your theme, copy it and rename it to `bbpress.php’ and remove any unwanted code such as the sidebar code.</li>

      Usually in a theme the sidebar code is similar to this, so remove this to remove the sidebar.

      <?php get_sidebar(); ?>


    In reply to: Full width and sidebar


    I have added that code to css editor.

    It would be perfect if you could instruct how to remove sidebar step by step.
