I see that here on the main magento commerce site you have this simple yet lovely forum, and also a blog.

Can the vanilla install of magento also do this ?

If not, then can it be installed as a plugin and can you let me know what software this forum and blog use ?

Thanks,

Stew

Magento does not include a blog or forum functionality. On this community site we use a customized version of Expression Engine that is fully integrated with the Magento store.

Thanks Adi,

Are there any instructions lying around about how to integrate expression engine and magento?

Are there any plans to build a plugin / incorporate as core any blog or forum functionality?

Unfortunately there is no available documentation for this integration at this time.

Members of the community have started a group regarding this matter that can be found here.

I should also mention that although we were pleased with working with EE the forum was greatly customized for look and feel as well as functionality.

Building a bridge to EE is not currently on the roadmap but could be in the future like many other features.
