    You can certainly do this with WordPress - most CMSs should allow you to do this I'd think.

    sitepoint is a great site, there are so many people answer, thanks.
    I have further question.
    Is wordpress for a blog? Is it good for products catalog? My products catalog will have picture sand descriptions, it allows users to click and go to another detail description page of that particular product.
    Can it accomplish this?

    Certainly you could use WordPress for a catalogue - just use posts and categories to organise them.

    wordpress is my first choice.
    joomla and drupal are also recommendable.

    If you are looking for a full ecommerce solution you might like to consider Zen Cart. But both Wordpress and Joomla have excellent CMS -

    if you want a shopping cart program, Zencart is highly recommended
    while it comes to CMS, I think Joomla! with VM plugin is great enough

    If you are selling products, it sounds to me that an ecommerce solution would probably be the better option for you rather than something like wordpress. With most ecom packages, you can 'skin' the pages with your own design so that all the pages look the same.

    Agree most cms should cater for your needs it will come down to the ease of application. I personally think Joomla is one of the easiest to adapt but found the admin area a bit clunky, Wordpress wins on that front. Haven't used Joomla in a while so things may have changed.
