    Hey, I'm designing a website for a relative. They are wanting a webshop where you can buy prints. I think it is her intention to upload various diffrent prints and sell them online. Problem is, she isn't good enough with HTML to make new pages everytime she wants to sell a new product, and I do not know how to really build a sufficient admin control panel where she easily make new pages with new content.

    So, I was thinking a CMS. Although, that would be a little much... she would not need user registration, and news items would not really be posted. Let alone the loaded features a CMS comes with today, like RSS. But the code would be 100% correct, and it would be easy to install, design, and quicker to get her going.

    Is there anything like this for her, maybe with less features? Maybe someone does design a CMS specifically for webshops? Can I perhaps disable user registration, and just not post news?
