I followed the instructions for #8, and added a sidebar.php file (renamed bbpress.php) to my theme root > however, when I did that, all my forum topic pages went completely blank – showing only a white page.
I would really love this solution to work, as it’s perfect, but not sure what to try now…?
Thanks so much for taking the time to respond & provide some links, but even after all the different instructions I came across, this was one that still had this novice stumped. After spending much too much time trying to stumble through it, I gave in & had a consultant fix it in a day for $15. Money well spent. 🙂
