change forum sidebar
@martinperreault – hey thanks for that – it’s good to know that advice works, and always nice to be appreciated 🙂
I am having the same problem – I have followed the instructions in the codex, and added WP Tweaks, but my custom sidebar for the forum page is not showing. When I go in and edit bbpress.php manually via the editor, the changes show in the sidebar. But when I try to do it via the widgetized area, the bbpress sidebar doesn’t show.
I also tried Robin W’s fix – moving the widgets out of the area and switching off the plugin etc, but that also didn’t work.
I am using a child theme of Canvas, and have also implemented the ‘Fix for BBPress and Canvas (5.2 and higher)’ Fix for BBPress and Canvas (5.2 and higher) –
the try widget logic
Download “widget logic”
This plugin lets you specify conditions for when widget items are displayed.
You would then put all the widgets for both the blog page and the forum page in one sidebar
Against each of these you then specify whether you want it to appear on the forum page, on any page with a sidebar that is not the forum (eg your blog), or on both forum and other sidebar pages.
you do this by putting the following code in the widget logic box that you will see appears against each widget
For a forum sidebar you put : is_bbpress() ie is this page a forum page
For any other sidebar you put : !is_bbpress() ie is this page NOT a forum page
For any item to appear on both, simply leave the logic blank.
Give that a try and come back and let us know how it works
Thanks so much, that’s it working perfectly now 🙂
