• Resolved KVNHNF



    Had this plugin for quite some years but never been able to make it work with BBPRESS…

    My “FORUMS SIDEBAR” has the following conditions:

    Forums -> All Forums / Forum Archives
    Topics -> All Topics / Topic Archives
    Replies -> All Replies
    bbPress User Profiles -> All Profiles

    Yet the only sidebar showing is the default WP one. What am I doing wrong please? Theme is Storefront

    Many thanks

    Best regards

  • I am having a similar problem with bbpress.

    I have created a sidebar called BBPress Sidebar and I can assign it to all my bbpress pages (individual forums, topics, replies, profiles, etc) except the bbpress homepage (which is not the homepage of my site.)

    What appears (incorrectly) on that bbpress homepage is the main sidebar. The bbpress homepage is created as a regular wordpress page, with a welcome and other info, then the shortcode [bbp-forum-index]. I have assigned and reassigned the BBPress Sidebar to it, but it continues to default back to the main sidebar.

    My theme is AstraPro.

    Thank you for the example, to fix this, you should update your conditions to this:

    Forums -> All Forums / Forum Archives
    Topics -> All Topics / Topic Archives
    Replies -> All Replies
    bbPress User Profiles -> All Profiles

    The “OR” indicates that you should move the bbPress User Profiles condition into its own group. Let me know if this helps!


    When you select the “bbpress homepage” in the Display Conditions, do you then select the normal page that you inserted the shortcode in, or do you select the “All Forums” condition?

    Thanks for getting back to us, Joachim.

    I had selected the page with the shortcode on it.

    But based on your question, I went in and instead selected the All Forums condition – and of course, now it works!

    I would not have guessed that was considered a forum page since I was only using a shortcode (obviously 🙂 )

    So – it’s working properly now. Thank you so much for your help!

    Best regards and thanks for your help
