    Hi tradester,

    Yes, you may check out wordpress news magazine themes (i.e. thrive, magazine etc.) or ecommerce themes.

    Mag themes normally have integrated BB Forums plugin to manage active community, chatroom, db profiles etc. too.

    For example, Green Mag wordpress theme has the functions you required.

    Cheers,

    I think it is better to start from scratch. WP will be slower and limiting you on huge projects like this

    Well, I did use Wordpress to create an advertising portal. It is called Kuknus classifieds. Beautiful designs, powerful features, and the freedom to build anything you want. WordPress is both free and priceless at the same time.

    I hope, it will inspire you to pursue your own dream.

    Thank you,

    Wordpress cannot handle that kind of load. It will keep overloading your server
