Full Width for bbpress forums root page

  • leopolds



    I am using Twenty Fourteen and bbpress. How can I make the forums root page full width?

    I want to remove the sidebar, center the content and remove the post-like forum names after the listing section. Basically, I want this page to act as a full-width page, not a post/forum listing.

    My forums root page is

    I want it to look like (created using shortcodes)

    Thank you very much.

    (I was able to achieve full-width style in individual forum page by using widget visibility function. But this doesn’t work for the forums root page.)

    Hi Robin,

    thanks for the reply.

    I did try to create a bbpress.php with full-width template pasted into it. But it is not exactly what I had in mind. Content is not centered, and there are still post-like forum listings.

    Like now:

    The only thing changed was the removal of the sidebar. Is it possible the problem is with the Twenty Fourteen theme and its page templates?

    Please help.



    Also looking for a solution to this problem.



    So, you want to have 100% width?

    Search in your main style css, in general it is style.css, for this code-part:

    .site-content .entry-header, .site-content .entry-content, .site-content .entry-summary, .site-content .entry-meta, .page-content

    There you can find “max-width:”

    Change it to 100%.

    If you do so, it might change other parts of your site as well. To prevent this you might want to add a new part to your css, and leave the above mentioned part untouched.

    .site-content .forum .entry-header, .site-content .forum .entry-content, .site-content .forum .entry-summary, .site-content .forum .entry-meta, .page-content {
    margin: 0 auto;
    max-width: 100%;
