    I am using bbpress with your theme and currently the forum is displayed on the full page version. How can I use the left sidebar version for it. What is the easiest way?

    Thank you

    Hi Maxi032.....I'm not sure how that is done as I am not totally familiar on integrating bbpress into any theme and if you would need a template (theme) made for it or not. I just installed bbpress to see what kind of settings it has but did not see any method for choosing a page template...which is strange.

    Hopefully someone will see this thread and provide a solution because I'd be interested as well. In fact, I made a note to possibly create a bbpress template for my next theme.

    You may want to post this question on the official bbpress forums and see what they have.

    Thank you for your answer. I found a solution. In page.php from the theme just below the get_header() I added

    <?php if (get_theme_mod('blog_left') ) : // Use this layout if the blog left is selected ?>
            if ( is_active_sidebar( 'sidebar-6' ) ) : ?>
    		<div id="secondary" class="widget-area span3" role="complementary">
    			<div id="st-left" class="st-sidebar-list">
    			 <?php dynamic_sidebar( 'sidebar-6' ); ?>
    		</div><!-- #secondary -->
    	<?php endif;?> 
    <php endif?>
    to add the left column and after that I replaced span12 with span9:
    <div id="primary" class="site-content span9">

    to make the content side narrow.

    Very nice....you made my work easier :)

    But just a reminder that for updates to this theme, any changes you make to the core files of this theme (or any theme), updating the theme will overwrite modifications. WordPress recommends doing such changes with a child theme (which I have available from my setup tutorials which has a tutorial about Child Themes).

    However, still happy to see you found a solution. Cheers!
