drooopal / xoops / mambo all have above features builtin or by modules ( not sure abt chat but xoops has a module for it ) Last time i gave a trial to all cms's , i liked xoops it was pretty quick in configuration and loads of modules available on their huge community site . I didnt like mambo but droopal was also good . It was about a year before and all cms's have loads of changes now so you will have to try and see which suits ur needs . btw stay away from phpnuke/postnuke family ..

Joomla / Mambo doesn't have a built in forum and its tough integrating a forum like SMF with it.Any suggesstions except for Drupal? I want a CMS with forum built in and not with a bridge.
