Hi please i want to create forum in my website
is there a plugin?
I am not a big fan nor expert of WordPress. But I just googled this, and this page came in: https://www.wpbeginner.com/plugins/5-best-forum-plugins-for-wordpress/
Kindly check it, and let me know if it is a valid answer. If you ask me for the best, I can not give you an answer. Anyway you can wait for another answer because for sure there will be other people who actually knows the answer.
Best regards and good luck!
It depends on what kind of forum you want - if it's a wordpress plugin there's little choice and quite frankly they are not very good. If you go for a more versatile forum you can install it in a sub folder and create a menu link to it from wordpress. Depending on which forum you go for there may be a third party bridge between the two meaning only one login is needed for both. Your forum could be served from a different database freeing up space in your wordpress database; that's if your database allowance is limited (most shared hosts allocate 1GB for databases, though some offer more) but even so a separate database for wordpress and forum would be the best route to take.
More information would be needed about your forum preferences, your host etc to give a more detailed reply.
Having stretched Wordpress beyond limits... I'd say probably no unless it's really going to serve only as an occasional posting experience, e.g. a light support forum. IMHO, none of the plugins were worth it although some were better than others. And those aren't necessarily forums either, at least not in the traditional sense, more like Stack Exchange type QA. Figure out what you want to accomplish first and then determine which is the most appropriate tool.
here is a forum i built on wordpress
it can do the job, but you will find yourself havng to pay for features that are default in stand alone forum softwares
thanks for your answers

There are lots of great wpForo sites out there.
I don't host my own, but it seems to be very capable and modern looking.
bbPress is my personal favourite.
bbPress is good. And I've seen some nice CSS work make it LOOK really good too...
Do you have any examples of this?
What i do not like about wordpress forums is that it does not feel something special. If you take a look at paid forums you get much more.
I don't remember where they are. When I was doing research about starting a bbPress forum as an experiment, I found examples...
That's certainly true...
