Hello! I’m very new to this. I want to create a forum for a hyper-local community with elements of e-commerce by integrating some classifieds style features. I’ve decided that WooCommerce would be the best platform for getting the job done.
Once I install the Discourse WP plugin, will I have Discourse running at full functionality since it’s opensource, or will I have to pay the $100/mo package on the website for this; that would seem odd since I’d be paying for hosting somewhere else with the WooCommerce setup? If it is in fact free and fully functioning at this point, how exactly do I go about managing it? Would it all be through the WooCommerce/Wordpress platform? With so many features, it’s hard for me to imagine how managing the forum would work through Wordpress.
