    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.

    I'd use wp-ecommerce or wp-cart for that, there is no need in trying to re-do something someone has already built for you.

    But if you're wanting to go about it the hard way, just create a function like:

    function cartFrontEndDisplay()
       echo('Some HTML and Stuff');
    // then hook it
    wp_filter('[myshop]', 'cartFrontEndDisplay');
    Inside the function you created you can have any php code you want there, and make it do anything you want. On any page that you type "[myshop]" on it will display that function.
