    I installed WP Bulletine Board, and I want sidebar appear in WPBB Forum web page.
    I think this would be solved if I add get_sidebar(); before get_footer() in wpbb-template.php. But Sidebar does not appear in WPBB page.
    The version is WPBB 1.0.4.
    How can I make sidebar appear?

    I really need more information to be able to help you. That should work yes but since it hasn't it's possible that it needs to be displayed a different way (which is wrong really, they should all be consistent with one another). If you could setup a temporary admin account for me and email me the details or let me know what theme / plugins you're using that'd be great. (me@codebycarter.com)

    Thanks

    Thank you for your quick reply.
    I emailed you details.
    But I'm afraid it's Korean translation´╗┐´╗┐. But you can see theme name or plugin name - it's english.

    Sorry. At first, I wrote get_sidebar() in "/wp-content/plugins/wp-bulletin-board/wpbb-template.php" not
    "/wp-content/themes/twentyeleven/wpbb-template.php"
    Next I wrote your script in "/wp-content/themes/twentyeleven/wpbb-template.php". Then sidebar appeared twice.
    And then I wrote get_sidebar() and delete the script in "/wp-content/themes/twentyeleven/wpbb-template.php"
    This time sidebar appears, but it's under the Forum table. not beside the table.
    I thought table width problem, so I modified wpbb-light-style.css, wpbb-table width 70%.
    But this is not solution. The sidebar is still under the forum table, and search button is located right margin.
    You can see http://momtest.workingmom.or.kr/?page_id=51.

    In wpbb-light-style.css around line 52 remove width and add this code:

    width:60%;
    float:left;

    In your themes/twentyeleven add this to wpbb-template.php:

    get_sidebar();

    Should then work, you'll just need to adjust to your liking.

    Hello CodebyCarter,I'm having a similar issue. I am using the Reaction theme. I have followed the steps you outlined above:

    in wpbb-light-style.css (and dark)
    width:60%;
    float:left;

    and then in themes/reaction/wpbb-template.php:
    get_sidebar();

    I have a sidebar now, but it's below the forum table, and the table hasn't aligned left at 60%...any ideas?

    wpbb-template.php:
    <?php

    /*
    Template Name: WPBB
    */

    /*
    This file is created apon activation or theme switch in your current theme directory.

    Do not remove this file at any time as it is loads all the neccessary files for wp-bb to run on the frontend
    */

    get_header();

    require_once(ABSPATH.'/wp-content/plugins/wp-bulletin-board/php/wpbb-forum.php');

    get_sidebar();

    get_footer();

    ?>

    wpbb-light-style.css:
    /* Credit to twentyelevens entry-content table as I used that as my table class when developing the plugin and and may use some styling or bare resemblance to it */
    .wpbb-table {
    width:60%;
    float:left;
    border: solid 0.1em;
    border-color: #9E9E9E;
    background-color:#F8F8F8;
    }

    Thank you for any ideas/suggestions you have,
    Rory Foster

    That was a solution for the twentyeleven theme. I tried downloading the Reaction theme and found out that it was developed by rocketthemes so I assume it's a premium theme so I cannot install it and test it locally so would you be able to give me a link to your website and a temporary admin account to look into this? (Since posting solutions that may not work just wastes time). You can email me at me@codebycarter.com with the login / website information.

    Thanks
