full-width-forum Quark theme

  • w-sky


    Hello there. Please have a look at our bbPress forum at

    It’s still in startup phase, the design is okay but as you see, it is now left aligned to the window border, whereas the rest of the page content (the menu, the footer, all non-forum pages) have a empty area at the left edge.

    How do I change the forum alignment now?

    The theme has these “grids”, now it’s the first grid, and I tried to put the forum to other grids but this way made it worse. So I think I rather make the forum to leave some free space.

    Also, the forum is looking very greyish and pale in the page context 🙁

    How do you recommend to change the look with simple changes, e.g. drawing a frame around the forum or background colour? I am not experienced in CSS design, but I can apply changes if I know what and where.

    I tried themes for BBpress that come as WordPress plugins, but they all did not work (to be precise, were looking ugly) in our theme. Which is “Quark” with many modifications in a child theme.

    use this code for a bbpress.php file if you already created one. It is basically the full width template already in your theme. .

    Getting Started in Modifying the Main bbPress Template

     * The main template file for bbPress.
     * @package Quark
     * @since Quark 1.0
    get_header(); ?>
    	<div id="primary" class="site-content row" role="main">
    		<div class="col grid_12_of_12">
    			<?php if ( have_posts() ) : ?>
    				<?php while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?>
    					<?php get_template_part( 'content', 'page' ); ?>
    					<?php comments_template( '', true ); ?>
    				<?php endwhile; // end of the loop. ?>
    			<?php endif; // end have_posts() check ?>
    		</div> <!-- /.col.grid_12_of_12 -->
    	</div><!-- / -->
    <?php get_footer(); ?>




    I can’t figure out how to make my bbPress forum full-width. My website/discussion forum is here: (I use the “Lucid” theme from Elegant Themes).

    Many thanks!
