In an existing magento store - I have been asked to integrate the ability for the stores trade clients to create products, categories and images themselves. In effect it would become a kind of portfolio or showcase needing the ability to:
- add new products and delete
- add new categories and delete
- add new images and delete
I know i can do all these things programmatically at times but my question is whether magento is built or can be adapted for this purpose safely?
By the sounds of it eventually the majority of the site would become this meaning everything for products, categories and images would all be controlled by the clients themselves not an admin
Is magento and the database structure built to handle all these actions being done on the front end? I worry that giving this amount of control could cause issues for the rest of the site and database tables?
