What sis this forum I like it and is it possible to have two sidebars on homepage (mainpage), and only one on other pages?
ThanksAugust 16, 2011 at 1:38 pm #50350
this forum is based on bbpress: http://bbpress.org/ with custom hacks (user verification, etc.) and a custom skin based on: http://www.awesomestyles.com/bbpress-themes/view/businesslike
The bbpress standalone forum is dying though – the dvelopers concentrate their efforts on the plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/bbpress/
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 :)August 16, 2011 at 1:42 pm #50351

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 confusedAugust 18, 2011 at 3:52 pm #50353
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…August 18, 2011 at 7:20 pm #50354August 19, 2011 at 5:13 am #50355
