I want to implement something where users can log in and review products and search for products to see reviews. I want to store multiple attributes to allow for really refined searches. I need things to be very sortable. Ideally, I would connect custom MYSQL databases on my server to Wordpress. I also want to load pictures, etc for the products. I expect there would be thousands of products added. I'm stuck on how I would get the products/ reviews to display.
Is there currently a plugin that handles this type of thing? Is this even feasible through Wordpress and should I spend time trying to create a plugin to do this for me? Is it possible with a new page type? Or would I run into trouble trying to create thousands of pages.
