BuddyBoss: Move Focus Mode Sidebar to the Right

Updated 2 years ago
by Dave Warfel

By default, when using BuddyBoss, the LearnDash focus mode sidebar is displayed on the left, with the main content shown on the right (for LTR languages). If you want to move the BuddyBoss focus mode sidebar to the right, it’s pretty simple with a small piece of CSS.

.lms-topic-sidebar-wrapper {
	order: 1;
.lms-topic-sidebar-progress .course-progress-wrap {
	z-index: 0;

And that’s it. One simple piece of CSS to move the BuddyBoss focus mode sidebar to the right side of the screen.

When on mobile, it will still open up from the left.

All CSS code should either be placed in a child theme’s main CSS file (typically style.css), or the Additional CSS area of the WordPress Customizer.
