    I’m using the Divi Theme by

    I’m looking to remove the sidebar from the buddypress profile pages for the user and make it fullwidth.

    I can go in and make the members page and group pages fullwidth by selecting page layout but I don’t have that option for the default pages. (profile page)

    If you have any ideas I would be greatly appreciative.

    Hi Jay,
    I am sorry but I am not familiar with Divi theme, so Can’t help much there.

    The only thing I can point is you need to hide the sidebars on condition bp_is_user(). If they have some type of hook for it, please do let me know and I can supply some code.

    Btw, a simple solution to make all BuddyPress pages use single column layout will be copying your page template which has no sidebar and naming it buddypress.php

    Hope that helps a little bit.

    Hello Jay,

    I encountered the same issue as you experienced. The solution that I used was to create a buddypress.php file in my child theme to remove the sidebar. Then I used a function in my functions.php to cause the Divi styles to display the page full width. It wasn’t that hard and only involved a few lines of code. I put more details in a blog post at
