I have installed the a trial of the Forums product on a cloud trial of Confluence. The Community Forums documentation is shown below. The Community Forums section it shows, does not exist in our instance.
Hi Dan - I don't know this add-on well at all, but I think you are looking the product documentation for the Server version of the add-on rather than the Cloud version.
There are probably some differences between the versions.
This is the documentaion for the Cloud version of Community Forums for Confluence: https://www.adaptavist.com/doco/display/CFFCC/Community+Forums+for+Confluence+Cloud
I've added tags to your question so hopefully someone from Adaptavist will step and an explain.
