    Community CMS

    Hello,

    Im looking to construct an community website with the following settings:

    Login
    Profile
    Groups with internal discussion
    And discussion for all members, like Q&A where people can post things and everybody can answer.

    I have been looking for Elgg but there is a better cms?

    Maybe you could try WordPress with BuddyPress.

    Well you probably realize this is going to take a little research before you actually get going on developing your site.

    Have you looked at Drupal Commons or Open Atrium? Both use Drupal as a foundation and Drupal Organic Groups for groups. I'd have a look and see if what you're doing can be achieved by setting up a site based on one or the other and then customized to suit your needs.

    Cheers,

    Sounds like a forum would suit your needs--IP.B is the best social forum system, with status updates and other social features. xenForo is a good alternative to IP.B. If you're looking for free software I suggest MyBB as your forum, as it is, in my opinion, the best open-source forum system.

    For private, group based discussions, you could have group-specific forums, which are only visible to group members, as well as a open forum so members of all groups can talk together. Any of the forum softwares mentioned above could do this.
