    Hello, everybody!

    Is there anybody here who can help me? Ive been trying to solve a standard problem, but all in vain. Well, actually in this theme - Magazine Basic - it is no a standard problem actually. Ive installed a forum plugin on one of my site pages, and now it is narrowed due to my right sidebar. I`d like to make this only page with the intslled forum full-width. All the desicions that I have found are invalid because php-codes and templates are different in various themes. So if anybody can help me I will be very thankful to this particular person.

    Thanks in advance!

    Please provide a link to your site. It's much easier to provide help when we can actually see the problem.

    If you want just that page, use this:

    .page-template-page_forum-php #secondary {
    display: none;
    }
    
    .page-template-page_forum-php #primary.c9 {
    width: 100%;
    }

    If you want the entire forum itself--that page, the forum, the topics--use this:

    .page-template-page_forum-php #secondary, .forum #secondary, .topic #secondary {
    display: none;
    }
    
    .page-template-page_forum-php #primary.c9, .forum #primary.c9, .topic #primary.c9 {
    width: 100%;
    }

    Well, and where should I write these parameters?

    Child theme's CSS is the best option if you're familiar with web development. It takes less than 5 minutes to setup and would be helpful for future customization as well. Instructions here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

    Plugins if you aren't up to setting up a child theme. Jetpack is an official plugin made by WordPress themselves that would help you with this. After installing Jetpack, you need to connect it to your wordpress account. Then you can enter the codes above in Appearance --> Edit CSS.

    Alternatively, you can hire someone to do the work for you.

    Thank you so much! I dont know how I can thank you. Ill try to fulfill all that you suggested in this thread. As you have already understood, Im not very well at making programming manipulations, so I suppose I will be in need to adress someone to help me, of course, not free of charge. I even guess that Id better to write down all the wee problems on the site to be eliminated and send it to the qualified person in order not to bother someone him many times.

    Jetpack makes it dead simple to add custom CSS. Try it before giving up!

    Also, since it's only CSS, when you mess up, all you need to do is delete the code and everything goes back to normal. It's not PHP where a mistake can potentially lock you out of your site.

    :-) Im am intrigued with this Jetpack. Im planning to get trained in this field to cope with all that on myself. I even bought some books on PHP-method. I`ve never heard of this Jackpack. I suppose with your inspiration I will succeed. Maybe :-)
