Database driven products within wordpress (6 posts)

    When I create a site without a CMS I can quite easily store products in a database and have those products display on a certain page and when clicked bring up a new page with info and pricing which is also pulled from the database bla bla you get the idea.

    I can also do this within wordpress but the problem is this... how the heck do I build it so my clients can add new products and also add new profiles for each product. I wouldn't know where to start.

    If it was just for myself I would just add each new product to the database and store the image somewhere... how do I make this all pretty and easy for the client. Is there some kind of template I can set up and if so, how do I achieve this without creating hundreds of different pages for different products?

    If anyone out there can explain the most efficient method to achieve this I will be thankful.

    Try looking at some of the ecommerce plugins.

    The thing is I dont want a shopping cart etc... I just want a profile for each item... it is more of an information viewing system with a profile for each item.

    So why not just make a post for each item? You might also want to take a look at Using WordPress taxonomies to create a product directory.
