A simple tutorial on how you could convert your bbPress Forum into a full width forum template allowing the forum to span throughout the website. Firstly you will have to understand where the bbPress system will pick up the page template for its default forum page. bbPress by default checks for ‘bbpress.php’, ‘forum.php’, ‘page.php’, ‘single.php’, ‘index.php’ files in your theme’s directory and further uses the file in the same order of availability. If you find any of these pages in the order in your theme directory, use them, else make a forum.php template by copying the source of page.php.
To achieve the full width look, firstly change the primary class value to wide. Basically search and add the class=”wide”. Next, remember to remove the line that calls the sidebar. You are done. Check out the below screenshots for a better idea!
