Looking for a Forum software for BuddyPress. bbpress?

hello experts. i am looking for a forum add on for a wordpress site with buddypress plugin. i am hearing bbPress everywhere. is this the only and right option?

right now when i click on the forum section of my buddypress it says ‘page not found’ so i am assuming out of the box buddypress doesnt come with a forum software.

any help will be appreciated please. i also checked out the bbpress site map creator plugin here on wpmu but the example link they gave at the end says page not found also :slight_frown:

thanks for your help in advance
