Hello! I’m interested in this to. You can add a sidebar manually to each topic page by going into ‘edit topic’ and selecting the layout option for the page that has a sidebar.
However, I would like to know if there’s a default option to have sidebars for ALL topic pages, without adding the sidebar one by one…
Thank you! Very helpful.
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…?
hmm… suspect that your sidebar.php was a sub template for just showing the sidebar.
There should be a page template in your theme that includes a sidebar. What theme are you using?
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. 🙂
great – glad you’re fixed !
