What you need to build a forum on WordPress

The things you need are;

  1. Reliable hosting account that can handle running a forum (at least 20GB disk space)
  2. Domain name (can be any extension)
  3. Forum plugin (I recommend bbpress because it’s an open source)
  4. A page builder (I use and recommend Elementor)
  5. At least the basics of HTML, CSS, Javascript and PHP

I can’t build it myself how much should I budget?

If you are not a website developer and still want to have a forum like Nairaland on WordPress, you can hire a web developer to do it for you (Alpha Web Consult is always at your service). Budget at least $150.

If you are WordPress designer, I can sell the forum template for you (you must know how to use Elementor VERY well). It will cost you just $50. Installation is $25 extra.

Using these tools gives you the flexibility to modify and make the forum look anyhow you want.

There are also some awesome forum plugins but are paid.
