    You want to remove the sidebar from all BP pages but not the regular WP pages and blog posts?

    This requires creating a child theme and editing all the BP pages and removing the php call. Or, you could remove everything in the sidebar.php file and then adjusting the css to make the sidebar width 0px.



    Thank you! :)
