I cant Add Sidebar to my forum homepage
can you please help me how can i add a sidebar to my forums default homepage http://virtualassistantphilippines.org/forums ? it seems that i cannot edit the page while im log in. i want to add the sidebar from my bbpresssidebar widget.
How did you set up your forum archive page at http://virtualassistantphilippines.org/forums , because the single forum pages have a sidebar??
After i installed bbpress plugin, i just created pages in the forum section like this one http://screencast.com/t/4y9uyeLo
but i cannot find the archive http://virtualassistantphilippines.org/forums in my pages section that is the reason why i cannot edit that page because its not showing in my pages> all pages
I setup the single forum pages sidebar because that pages is showing in my pages>all pages
the forums shouldn’t show up in pages > all pages
I am guessing you have put shortcodes in pages to do this.
I guess if you want to keep putting shortcodes in pages , which will be time consuming , you can use the [bbp-forum-index] shortcode
why my reply is not appearing here? i only added 1 link
I swear to god that the virtual assistant philippines. org /forums/ is not showing to my pages> all pages. it appears default after i installed bbpress plugin, i never touch it because i cant find that page to edit.
just now i manually created that page so the default forums will be replaced, and it does. and i assigned “bbpress sidebar” but it shows different sidebar compared to subforums i used. here’ http://www.virtual assistant philippines. org/forum/faq/ even though i used the same widgets for both forums and subforums. ( i separated my website url because im thinking that is the reason why my post is not appering here)
have you check it? they are different content in the sidebar eventhough i used the same “bbpress sidebar” widget
Just shy away from using shortcodes for forum pages , it will be time consuming. You would have to possibly create pages for all instances of any bbPress page. This includes topic pages and user profile pages.
The way you could get a non-fullwidth layout is to contact your theme author , which I think is Avada for help. Since they have more knowledge of how the theme works and I can’t just buy a theme and test it out and tell you what to do to have this layout.
You could also do this manually with my help guiding you, but you would need some basic knowledge of how WordPress templates work.
This guide will help with getting the layout , you would need to add the sidebar code back in like how the example template has. Please note that that is just an example template and is not something to copy and paste since all themes are different.
