    Hi Dave,
    I have the version 1.1 of your plugin installed, on Genesis 1.7.1, using the Lifestyle 2 theme.

    When I change the bbPress forum layout to content-sidebar, it does not make a change to any of the forum page layouts (they are all still full width). http://screencast.com/t/t4biHi9H

    he Genesis default is set a content-sidebar.

    Thanks much

    Hi there!
    I am so sorry for this and cannot rebuild this behavior yet...

    I've tested this whole bbPress thing A LOT BEFORE release and always worked!

    I just tested with Lifestyle 2.0 and your prefered layout and also worked!

    Question: do you have any other layout setting in your functions.php regarding the forum?

    You could try a re-save of the regular Genesis layout option and ALSO in the plugin's page: set the forum on "Genesis Default" and then save. Then re-open the plugin's page and select "Content-Sidebar" and save. -- Does that help?

    Did you before use version 1.0 of the plugin maybe? Or do you have any other layout options set with hooks or other plugins? (Could be a priority conflict...)

    Hope this helps a bit :)

    Can you tell me how to specify a particular sidebar? I am using Genesis simple sidebars and have created one called forumsidebar for the bbpress sidebar. How can I have it show up there instead of default sidebar?

    You are on the right way with this and you need both plugins for that: My "Genesis Layout Extras" and also the "Simple Sidebars" plugin!

    The magic to get it working requires a little bit additional code in your functions.php of the child theme.

    I will post this code in my next answer here, I just need your ID of the specific sidebar you want for bbPress. Just look at your Simple Sidebars settings page and please give me the name AND the ID so I could adjust this directly for you :)
