Losing Genesis Prose Sidebar

  • merpmerp


    I have Genesis Prose, and I guess I will have the latest version of the bbpress forum plugin. Here is my site, .

    I would like to add a forum to the site, but I would like to get rid of the sidebar on the forum page.

    Is this possible?

    Thank you,

    Yes totally.

    You can create a full width page forum if you wish – if your theme has a full width page option then just create a full width page, put the index shortcode within it [bbp-forum-index].

    But it may be better to have a separate sidebar, so that you can have login and latest posts – see for an example.

    Once you have installed bbpress, then install a plugin called bbPress WP tweaks. it gives you a forum specific sidebar, so you can add login and latest posts widgets

    You can also use a plugin called “widget logic” with your normal sidebar to control what widgets are seen on what pages. For instance a widget will not appear if you use the logic !is_bbpress()m or will appear if you use is_bbpress()



    OK, thank you for the information, I will give it a shot.

    I did start install the plugin on a completely different domain, so if I can get it to work the way you describe on the original domain I will have to decide if I want to do that or just go with the forum on the new domain name and just link to it from the menu.

    Thank you,
