    What sis this forum I like it and is it possible to have two sidebars on homepage (mainpage), and only one on other pages?




    this forum is based on bbpress: with custom hacks (user verification, etc.) and a custom skin based on:

    The bbpress standalone forum is dying though – the dvelopers concentrate their efforts on the plugin:

    2) To display a fullwidth sidebar for pages/posts, etc. (except the frontpage) open up sidebar.php and replace following code line:

    if($k_option['includes']['sidebarCount'] != 2) $sidebarSize = ' fullwidth_sidebar';


    if($k_option['includes']['sidebarCount'] != 2 || !is_home() || !is_front_page()) $sidebarSize = ' fullwidth_sidebar';

    and select the “2 columns” sidebar option (Newscast Options > Sidebar & Footer).

    Please note that this solution is not perfect (it’s more a hack) because it just displays both columns as fullwidth columns. However you can set widgets for the left or right sidebar widget area only :)


    Right and thanks for the quick reply, ill give it ago and get back to you



    Hi Cant get this to work. It appears to work on some pages and not on others. This maybe due to the fact that I have been adding the widgets in to the “Display Everywhere Right” or Left sidebar areas. Is this correct or should I be creating custom widget areas for each page that I want with only one sidebar


    I am a little confused


    I just saw that the hack can’t work the way I intended it to. It requires some backend changes (new widget areas, different sidebar logic, etc.) and code changes. I think it’s not possible to use a quick & dirty hack or mod here…


    OK thanks for your help


    Glad that I could help you :)
