    Search in the plugin directory for "forum". You should find a decent amount of plugins that provide a forum. Pick which one suits you best.

    Try Vbulletin as well. I've seen people integrating it with WP somewhere...I am not very sure about the security aspect of vb.

    ok, so i decided to install simple-press forum plugin. although its the forum is free, but the additional plugins requires a paid membership,

    anybody knows where to get additional plugins for free?
