    Hello Tom,

    i encounter some strange issue regarding bbpress and the sidebar widgets in generatepress using the subtheme forefront.

    I have set the widget sidebars to disappear for the forums mainpage here:
    http://home.guender.net/forum/

    But still both sidebars are displayed, what ever option i set in the generatepress page options. (Page option: Content (no sidebars)

    If i do this on any other page it works just good. Is there any possibility to stop bbpress from overwriting this?

    Best regards,
    Dominik

    Hi there,

    WordPress treats bbPress (and other custom post types) as a blog, so the blog sidebar layout applies for bbPress.

    To override this, you can use a function like this:

    add_filter( 'generate_sidebar_layout','generate_custom_bbpress_sidebar_layout' );
    function generate_custom_bbpress_sidebar_layout( $layout )
    {
     	// If we are on a category, set the sidebar
     	if ( is_bbpress() )
     	 	return 'no-sidebar';
    
     	// Or else, set the regular layout
     	return $layout;
    
     }

    Let me know if that helps or not 🙂
