I spent the last day or so thinking about this and I think I've decided it's time for me to ditch phpbb as HSO

This seems to do most of what I need... minus the ability to add new fields for every post (beyond a body and subject)

I have used <a href="http://www.ellislab.com">ExpressionEngine</a> with huge succes. It has a lot of features in there that can push your site even higher in page rank. I'm pretty sure that it has everything you are talking about, if not, extensions, plugins, and modules for the application are not hard to write.

There is no hacking involved as this is a separate PHP file that can be called from within the admin panel when setting up your content.

I have to admit it does look impressive. I love how it can include my own custom fields.

I am going to test it out and see how I like it. If I can categorize things, etc like I need... I may very well consider this.

I would suggest you to go for JOOMLA.

link: http://www.joomla.org/

They have got a lot of widgets that can be used as addons and the site can be extended to unbelievable levels.

Joomla was one of the top picks.

Right now, after playing with Expression Engine, I have to admit of all the systems - it's the most impressive so far.
