This is driving me crazy. And I am fairly new to Wordpress in terms of actual site management, so please bear with me.
I have tried with both simple-forums and bbpress, and the problem is the same, the template has the sidebar for widgets on it and I cannot for the life of me figure out how to display my forums in Habitat WITHOUT the sidebar. I know it can be done, because these people here have done it: http://www.voracityguild.com/?page_id=280
If there is a place that you specify the page template (blog, portfolio, etc), I cannot find it.
