    Hi, I've heard of many open source e-commerce CMS's, but dunno which is the best one. Basically i'm looking for one where I can design the pages in WYSIWYG mode, and one that has pretty good addons.

    Can anyone recommend a good one?

    Joomla with Virtuemart. Free with tons of add ons. I've set up many. I found learning Joomla the hardest part as it is very involved. The good news is there is a large community out there you can turn to for help.

    I've read good things about Magento, but I hate to recommend it considering I haven't worked with it.

    Joomla and ZenCart is best in my opinion. And if you would like to have some assistance with the installation of the scripts. Fantastico Deluxe is a great cPanel / Php support program that you can easily install multiple scripts and open source programs.
