Website Redesign

Hello all,

We are in the process of wanting to redo our website from the ground up.  I am looking for some recommendations on what platform to use.  We are looking for a platform that will give us good content management, shopping cart, easily searchable for customers, mobile and MAC compatible, etc..

Joomla has been suggested to us.  Any others you like better.

Any help and thoughts would be great.

Thank you!!
Tom

Magento is the Prima Donna among shopping carts.
Maybe not the best for you if you are wanting a blog/article style site though there is a wordpress plugin for Magento

Hi there:

Try a few of these CMS/eCommerce software:
ZenCart - http://www.zen-cart.com/
SugarCRM - http://www.sugarcrm.com/
liveSite - http://www.camelback.net
Nucleus - http://nucleuscms.org/
Trendy Site Builder - http://www.trendyflash.com/

Generally each site has a demo so you can see what it looks like, but if you find a really good CMS and you don't initially see a shopping cart feature, do a google search for that CMS to see if there are Shopping Cart addons/plugins/modules that you can add.

Also Telerik's sitefinity is pretty awesome... http://www.sitefinity.com/
If you told us what you're good at, we might have even better recommendations.  It's almost trivial to setup a Linux server (I have a couple of Ubuntu machines) and prototype a new site on it to see what you like and don't like.  And for desktop browsers, the only compatibility issue for Macs is usually fonts.  Safari and Firefox (and Chrome?) are very much the same on Windows and OSX.
