              can see forum side bar only on forum page, how do I make it visible while reading forum threads and posts.

                  Yet another thank you!! I tried it this afternoon at www.sgrid.com and it worked flawlessly. I love the way it's done, with users having the ability to show the sidebar, or hide it.
