    you can use the sidebar that your forum page is displaying – if it is showing one then read the rest of this, if not then come back !

    If you want specific items for bbpress and maybe others on other pages, then add

    and then use

    is_bbpress() as a condition for widgets to be shown and !is_bbpress() for widgets that you don’t want on forum pages, but do on others.



    For beginners use a plugin like widget logic.

    That piece of the guide I wrote was a simple approach to creating a bbPress only sidebar for a default theme, it needs to be explained more for beginners, and requires some theme dev knowledge.




    I have a problem with the bbpress sidebar. I use bbpress wp tweaks to create a widget area for bbpress. Thats ok.
    But: When i create a forum mainpage i dont have a chance to use this sidebar. I only have the choice to use sidebar left and right, but that would show the blogsidebar.
    What can i do to use the widget area for bbpress on sites.
