I can't seem to get bypress or Mybb to work at all so I am wondering if there are any others that I can use.
kevin: Does your host use plugins? If so, install the Mybb plugin and it all should be set up for you on a basic level. If not, download the package from Mybb and upload it using your ftp account and ftp software. Make sure to create a folder on your server for the forums separate from your website.
I use PHPBB or SMF (simple machines) both are free and very well supported.
Damnlag is one
