Hi i'm still struggling with the functionality and purpose of the 'forum settings' button under the platform pro options - any pointers here on how to se the options within - specifically adding an image to the blog itself the 'forum sidebar image' What is the forum sidebar and where,when,how etc does it appear with its image? Thanks in advance

Antony, those options make visible the fact that bbpress will create a 2nd sidebar. Read my post here about fixing my issue: http://www.pagelines.com/forum/discussion/13966/buddypress-bbpress-and-platformpro-solutions#Item_1 Buddypress/bbPress seem to want to control the sidebar and by default try to control the full width of your page, even if you have sidebars of your own. Normally, they just push your sidebar down. Some folks use bbPress on a fullwidth layout, allowing it to create its own sidebar designed via the settings tab you mention.
