is there a free plugin that allows forum functionality in confluence 5?
If you using a third party forum in confluence 5 - can you share your experience on setup and maintenance?
I believe the Community Bubbles Plugin might suit your needs since it is still free.
The above add on is from adaptavist, they also created the community forums plugin, so I can't confirm for sure is the forum functionality is still in there, however I still believe it worth a shot installing community bubbles to check it out.
Thanks for referring to our Community Bubbles add-on.
Though Forums features has been removed from Community Bubbles since Confluence 5.x compatibility release and now Forums are available in the Community Forums add-on, which is our commercial and fully supported plugin.

Take a look at our Community Forums add-on, it's no longer free, so we can invest in its development and provide a great support for users - but check it out, you get 30-days free evaluation in the Marketplace to make sure whether it meets your needs.
