I need to create a blog + forum

  1. Responsive Blog should be very similar to this :
    http://blog.taplytics.com/
    I dunno what framework they have used here, Can I do something similar. Please advice.

    Also I need to create a community forum Please advice.

    I know question is basic and generica, bear with me, I am a newbie in wordpress

    The blog I need help with is hackmabrain.wordpress.com.

  2. As for your forum question, you'll need to create a forum offsite and link to it with a custom menu. As for your theme question, I'm not the best to answer that, but I do know that you can use the custom menu wiget to place the menu at the bottom like they've got.

  3. Hi there,

    There is no FTP access and no blogger installed plugin capability on free hosted WordPress.com blogs.
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/ftp-access/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/plugins/
    That only exists on WordPress.ORG installs.

    There is no upgrade you can purchase here that provides FTP access and the ability to install plugins.

    You have three free workaround forum options: http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2012/04/23/wordpress-com-forum-options/
    One approach is to register a forum on the internet and then create a custom menu in your blog and include a custom link to the forum in it.
    a custom link to the forum in it.
