    I use Genesis Corporate theme and would like to start an open forum where anybody that is a member can post and comment on posts.

    How do I set this up?

    For forums, see bbPress or Simple:Press.

    Thank you! Used bbPress.

    How do I get someone to be able to log in?

    Is there a separate plug-in that I need?

    I haven’t used bbPress in a while, but I believe there is a login widget. You could either a) have your forum page include a sidebar (ie, not be full width) or b) create a page template and include a widget area in which you’d place the login widget. For plugin specific questions, you might have better luck with the bbPress forums. This site uses bbPress and there may be users here familiar with it, but there are likely more of those folks on the bbPress forum since that’s their focus.
