Need help setting up site using Wordpress


Thread Starter
May 11, 2020
I am trying to have my own web forum - general discussion - I have started the set-up, used Wordpress. I find at every turn I am asked to buy something. AS a non-expert I can not find simple direct help to set up my site. The language assumes you know every tech name or phrase.
Is there any help out there for people like me who want to be assisted properly and not just sold things with flash names??

Have you visited there are thousands of free plugins there. As to your specific requirement for a forum BBpress as previously suggested is from the Wordpress organisation it is robust but imho leaves a lot to be desired as it is not like most forum software. WPForo is pretty close to normal standalone forum software and I have heard good things about Discussion Board but have not used it myself.
