Forum not working well with custom template
I have just re-installed bbPress after looking at several alternatives as although it was the first I tried it seemed to be incompatible with the custom template I am having to use.
I looks to me that the forum needs a wider page in order to organise its components properly as they are jumbled up. The forum does work in that I can enter text – it is just a bit of a mess. I might even suggest styling is very minimal
I have tried making a full width page (no sidebars) and then substituting page name into ‘Forum root’ and it seemed to work BUT the forum was loaded with sidebars as before so no improvement.
I have read of a somewhat complex solution involving child templates and monifying style sheets but that seems dreadfully long winded and prone to error for a WP non-coder such as myself.
Is there an easier way to prevent sidebars from loading?
Or is there a way I can generate a page eminating from a different template on which I can load bbPress? The latter might give me a nicer forum styling too.
Is there a way to load the forum into an existing page via html/Js code for example – as an iFrame perhaps?
Thanks for any help – if it has to be the most difficult way then please say!
