bbPress issue with DejaVu theme

resolved (14 posts) (3 voices)

  1. I am encountering an issue when using bbPress on my DejaVu site.

    The forum pages all have an empty sidebar. I would really like the forum pages to be full-width.
    After looking into the theme code it appears that the function "mysite_body_class" is setting a class of "right_sidebar" on the body tag and this is what is causing the issue.

    How do I get full-width forum pages on DejaVu?
    Thanks for your help!

    Hello hollyisle,

    In Dashboard -> your theme -> Blog there is a post layout field which sets the default layout. Set that to full width. For pages you would do the same thing in Dashboard -> your theme -> General Settings.

    Also, the plugin uses archives so you'll need to set it in Dashboard -> your theme -> Specialty Pages -> Archives as well.

  3. Hi Elliott,
    Thanks for the help - while this seems to have worked for the top level forum areas, once you go into a specific forum the empty sidebar shows up again.

    Any other ideas on how to correct this?

    Are you sure you have some widgets set for the primary menu area in Dashboard -> Appearance -> Widgets?

  5. Hi Elliot,
    I do not have any widgets in the primary menu sidebar.

    I got it working by modifying my child theme as follows:

    in the mysite_body_class function:

    under this structure:

    	# Is singluar post
    	if( is_singular() ) {

    I commented out the last "else" option:

    //$classes[] = 'right_sidebar';

    This has got it working as I want it.
    Thanks for your help!

    What was the fix for this issue? I have root level forums that are full page but once you click it I have a right sidebar. What file did you edit for this fix?

    You set the archive sidebar in Dashboard -> your theme -> Specialty Pages -> Archives.

    That works fine for the forum but once you click on the topic you have a right sidebar. It just won't go away.

    Set the default page and post layouts to full width in Dashboard -> your theme -> General Settings and Dashboard -> your theme -> Blog.

    Yes and it doesn't work. Everything is set to full width and the forums are full page but the topics and threads have a right sidebar. Nothing I change fixes it.
