I would suggest xoops, even though there is not WYSIWYG IIRC. However, 
WordPress 2.0 has WYSIWYG.

As for chat integration, xoops has a shoutbox that is very nice. 
Additionally, I remember having seen in Freshmeat a CGI IRC chat 
frontend... but that requires, obviously, an established IRC channel.
