BEWARE of plug-ins.  Just like WordPress and Joomla, incompetently written plugins from 3rd parties can leave vulnerabilities that will get your site hacked.

There are other forums, too.  A Google search for PHP forum software will turn up many options.

If you want free, then I endorse the two already posted.  However if you want to step up to a more professional level and goo support you should look at vbulletin.  It will cost you a couple of hundred dollars, but it is a well designed and easy to use product.
