Hey guys. So I just installed the forum, and everything works fine, except that on the forum holder page the sidebar that I have in my file is still there. The forum actually overlaps the sidebar, as it takes up the whole width of the page, but I can still see some parts of the sidebar.

I am really new to SilverStripe, but i was assuming that since the forum has a different page type than, this shouldn't happen. Any thoughts?

Figured it out... Threw an if statement around the sidebox.

<% if Title = Forums %>
<% else %>
<div class="sidebox">
<% end_if %>

Nevermind, that only fixed the problem for the forum holder page... Does SS have and/or functionality in if statements?
