I wanted to display the Forum on a page with no Sidebars which at first I thought was going to be a bit tricky but to be fair its turned out to be pretty straight forward.
I just needed to create a page template and apply it to the page that was going to display the Forum.
To do this I made a copy of page.php which is located in the current themes directory and saved this copy as page-nosidebars.php.I then deleted all the code in this file and replaced it with
Template Name: No Sidebars
<?php get_header(); ?>
<div id=”primary” style=”width:920px;”>
<?php if(have_posts()) : ?>
<?php while(have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
<div id=”post-<?php the_ID(); ?>”>
<h1><?php the_title(); ?></h1>
<?php edit_post_link(‘Edit’, ‘[‘, ‘]’); ?>
<?php the_content(); ?>
<?php wp_link_pages(‘before=<p><strong>’ . __(‘Pages:’) . ‘</strong>&after=</p>’); ?>
<?php endwhile; ?>
<?php endif; ?>
<?php get_footer(); ?>
Once saved this becomes available from the dropdown menu of Page Templates when writing a new page.Now I can create pages and select this template when I do not require sidebars.
