I've been running a community site for a while using mambo - it's about as 
easy as it gets for users to add new content & there are plenty of third 
party modules to add forums etc.  It's also php/MySQL based so you can set it 
up at most ISP hosts - check that they have the required extensions first 

It uses the usual admin hierarchy of user, author, publisher, administrator 

I've not used phpNuke or postNuke so maybe others could compare functionality 
between them & mambo.

Have a look here http://test.opensourcecms.com/ to try out a few different 
open source CMS
