I have a students wordpress blog, I will like to add forum where students can discuss and share ideas.
Please can anyone here suggest a good plugin, and I like this ogbongblog planet own.
Check out wpForo. Let me know what you think.
Share me your blog url as well
How about BuddyPress?
Their description sounds pretty good for your mission
The best way to achieve this is by using BuddyPress and BBPress combines. it give you all the functionalities you will ever need. I use it and i tell you i have something close to Facebook with these two plugins combined. You may also need WPUM (Wordpress User Manager).
