Newbie here. I am using WordPress as a CMS and really don't need the blog features, however I would like to add a forum and was thinking about SMF or something similar. Many topics discuss integrating between the forum software and WordPress, however I'm unclear whether this refers to updating between the two or just using the forum software on a WP site.
I basically just want to have access to a forum from my site which is using WP, however I don't need any communication between the two systems. Does this matter?
My forum needs:
1. Secure and will only be used by less than 10 people
2. Ability to add attachments
3. Ability to set up rights for different users.
