    Need CMS where dynamic select/sort can be implemented

    I'm trying to build a site that showcases products, similar in style/layout to many CSS galleries, and from what I've seen, many of those types of sites use WordPress. Going that route seems pretty straightforward, but I don't think WordPress is able to (at least without a custom plug-in) do something I have planned.

    What I'm looking to do is allow users to filter products by a number of criteria without doing an advanced search. For example, a user could select a category, color, or price, then have the posts/products sorted either upon a page reload or via javascript.

    I found one site that has a close approximation of my goal - foliostars.net. Sorry, I can't post links yet. (It's the horizontal navigation bar above the image thumbnails.)

    Does anybody know if something like this can be implemented in WordPress, or do I have to go with another CMS?

    Could you not do this via tags in Wordpress?
    To do it via ajax may take some javascript work, but in theory it should be quite straight forward.
