    I'm looking for a CMS which will do these things


    1) Let me send emails to everyone who's signed up on the site
    2) If I install a forum as part of the site, it will authenticate from the same place as the forum, i.e. the usernames and passwords will (obviously need to be) the same for the CMS as well as the forums.
    3) It should let me do the whole site in multiple languages, eg. Spanish or French etc. If the same article or whatever is available in that lang, it'll show it, if not, it'll just show the English version.
    3) The URLs must be search engine friendly.
    4) Must be easy to migrate the data for the site from one server to another. I do know a little of my way around MySQL adminning, but I'd rather not fiddle with it if I don't have to.
    5) It must let the admin test the browser version on the home page, and if the browser version is lesser than required, print a "You need to upgrade message", and then show either fallback content if it's there, or stop.
    6) Must have chat rooms, or the ability to put up free chat software (eg. some PHP chat software) within the site.

    Can anyone suggest anything?

    Thanks so much.

    If you don't want to do any coding, Joomla might be the way to go.

    Wordpress with the appropriate plugins will do:

    1. Yes as a plug in
    2. Yes as a plug in
    3. Yes as a plug in
    3. (again) Yes; with a plug in, you can do full seo optimisation and automated proof-reading with readability scoring and suggestions; waay cool
    4. As long as you can back up a directory structure and database; and then restore them.
    5. If there isn't a plug-in for that you can write your own easily enough.
    6. If there isn't a plug-in for that you can write your own but probably not as easily as 5!

    One VERY important thing I forgot to mention is that it must have "wiki" type of functionality, i.e. if there's a section called "Articles", users must be able to submit their own articles (maybe they'll be actually published after I've validated them to see they're not spam etc etc.). What I'd really like is to be able to set topics eg. "Food", "Clothing" etc. and users will then be able to publish under any they see fit. Is this possible with either Wordpress or Joomla?

    By the way, what's a forum software where I can get WYSIWYG editing, where if I italicise something, it WON'T get [/i] type of crap around the word, but actually SHOW it in italics?


    Thanks.

    In Wordpress, set them up with author permission then they'll be able to submit articles but not publish them.

    Thanks.
    There are many forum plug-ins for Wordpress, I can't remember off hand if they use the Wordpress built in editor or not
