I want to build a website for a project with the following requirements:

  1. Any user can register
  2. They can post product by selecting a category, tags and uploading pictures
  3. Users can comment on the products
  4. Users can rate a product
  5. Users can view all products they posted, edit or remove the product

Do you have an idea of a plugin or a set of plugins which I can use to achieve this?

These four requirments comes right of the box with wordpress. You don't need any extra plugin for that.

  1. Any user can register - Go to General settings page and enable Anyone can register option by checking checkbox available next to it.

  2. They can post product - Assign them a role of author so that they can publish posts, do comments, upload media etc.

  3. Users can comments - By default anyone can comment on posts (products), From 'Discussion Settings' menu you can configure it such a way that only registered users can do comments.

  4. Users can view all products - post author can edit their posts, comment on their post etc.

For Ratings - Take a look at Wordpress Plugin Directory, You'll find plenty of good rating plugins there.

You can start with the followings:

  1. By default any user can register. Enable it in General-> Settings
  2. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-user-frontend/
  3. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/gd-star-rating/

Do you have any coding experiencie with wordpress? Im not sure if with just plugins you can achieve all your requirements

GD star rating is an awful plugin. Please look at the source and try it - it's defiantly nothin' I'd recommend. – kaiser Aug 9 '12 at 21:22
Any good alternative to recommend?. I haven`t use many rating plugins – chifliiiii Aug 9 '12 at 21:36
