    Hi
    I want to ask that I want to make a grand forum site with word press; this means that it should neither be blog nor website; it should be only forum like digital point or warrior. Is there any forum theme instead of plugins? If not then how could it be done with plugin? Can plugin will be able to bear tons of traffic when the forum will be famous? Please let me know the best option. Because I only want to run forum with out any blog.

    There are several plugins:

    http://wordpress.org/plugins/vanilla-forums/

    http://wordpress.org/plugins/mingle/

    The rest depends on how you set up your site and the hosting you use. You may also want to look into stand-alone forum software - google can help you with that.

    Hi

    Thanks for answering, as far as buddy press is concerned it can be used to make a social networking kind of site. I struggled to use it for one of my sites but I simply hate it, I used Mingle instead.

    Okay so its done that I have to use plugin, but my real question still remains there. I asked that i don't want to give it a blog and website look I just want simple forum look at the home page or front end. How it could be achieved,

    and thanks WPyogi for the suggestion. I am going to Google stand-alone forum software. If I find something I will update.
