The most famous ones would be wordpress, Joomla or drupal. All three of them can do all the things you mentioned. Wordpress is known for being simple so I would go for it.

The best CMS software can create custom sites using source code.WordPress, Joomla!, and Drupal are the best content management system.One of the most effective advantage of wordpress is Huge developer community with plenty of documentation and tutorials available.And it is very user friendly in nature.The attacting feature of joomla is User authentication can be done with OpenID, Google, and LDAP, among others and there is More than 7000 extensions available.I think you can select CMS from these .
