What is the best solution for developing an online community site in PHP?

I have tried Elgg and BuddyPress, but those solutions just don't seem to work very well, mostly because of issues with the templates. I want to develop an online community that is based around my online radio station. The community should have forums, chat, galleries, user search, comments, walls, and all the other basic stuff that comes with an online community. It needs to be completely graphically customisable I'm looking for the best solution that is under $600, but preferable free.

PHP predefined variables and URLs

I'm developing a custom 404 page using .htaccess to redirect to the 404.html. I'm trying to use PHP (via an include in the 404.html) to show the referring page (using $_SERVER['HTTP_REFERER']). This works fine. I'd also like to return the bad URL that originates the 404. Is this possible using PHP? [more inside]

I am building a web based service. I am about 1/3 done with the project.

MoveableType

As a self-imposed php refresher, I've recently been toying around with writing custom movable type submission frontends for a few less web-literate family members (Basically just simplified forms that throw the user input into the MT mysql database). I've got everything ticking along nicely, but none of the submitted entries will show up until I log in and rebuild the site from within movable type. My question: Is there some way to either force a rebuild from a custom form, or automate a rebuild? I've searched the MT forums with no success. I'm using MT 2.64 with minimal knowledge of its inner workings. Any suggestions / pointers / links are appreciated!
