XF 1.5 Customizing Category and Parent Forum Layout

#1
I'm not sure if this is the right place for this so if it needs to be moved, that's fine.

Basically all I want is for my Category pages and Parent Forum pages to look pretty much exactly like the Main index page, including having a sidebar. The only difference I want is that Category and Parent forums need a Title and have breadcrumbs.

Is there an easy (or easyish) way to do this?

Thanks

It requires an add-on to add the sidebar with the same content to other pages.

I believe the Widget Framework add-on can do that.

I'm currently having issues with Widget Framework and cannot re-install it due to an inability to access my phpmyadmin or whatever it's called.

This is the main forum page... which should actually be community, but that's beside the point:
https://community.toulaboula.com/index.php
As you can see, the main content area has no background and all of the nodes are in nice little boxes.

These are a category page and a child forum list page:
https://community.toulaboula.com/index.php?categories/modus-operandi.6/
https://community.toulaboula.com/index.php?forums/drawing.17/

The main content area has a background, which leaves the previously nice little node boxes very unattractive.
I either need to figure out how to copy the layout of the index page or... I have no idea what as this is a completely new design environment for me.
