    Hi guys,

    Any idea how to enlarge my forum page and shrink sidebar?

    From this http://www.cardzreview.com/forums/

    To something similar to this http://elitegamingcomputers.com/forum (Site is from one of the StudioPress forum members and it looks great)

    Any tip would be highly appreciated and would help me a lot in my final process of making the site.

    Cheers.

    Hey Kellylise,
    Thanks for sharing.

    However since this is a bbPress thing, my /forums is not a page (at least it does not have a edit page options).
    So I think I might need something a little bit more specific.

    You can isolate the bbPress forum pages by adding styling that has body.bbpress before the specific class styling you are targeting. To change the widths for example, do the following:

    1. Add this after line 1428

    body.bbpress .sidebar {
    width: 260px; /* shrank it by 100px */
    }

    2. Add this after line 1137

    body.bbpress .content {
    	width: 800px;
    }

    You can adjust the widths for what you want them to be here.

    I am trying to do a similar thing. What I can’t find/understand is where to place the code you mentioned Tonya? I am looking all over for lines 1428 and 1137 where that would make sense, but I can’t seem to find where you are talking about?

    Is it somewhere in the BBpress plugin? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
