Grading a CMS:
We have based our CMS selection on the following requirements (please note that these requirements are tech-driven; in the future, we will add less tech-driven requirements);

1: A single item model for the main page with a repeater containing various components to construct this page, with one component for selecting featured products.

2: From the main page, you can use content links to link to products on the website.

3: A product category page that displays all products within a specific category, including content about this category with products that can be filtered based on different tags and prices, which can be sorted (?), searched and paginated.

4: A product page with information about the product (using a WYSIWYG editor, an optimised product image (upload), and a link to a Content Integration Field displaying some random data).

5: Ability to add question and answer repeaters to a product (list).

6: Ability to leave a review for a product, which will be placed as a draft in the CMS, which can then be manually approved and displayed under the product.

7: It is possible to manually sort the order of these reviews (similar to the WordPress plugin https://nl.wordpress.org/plugins/simple-page-ordering/).

8: The website must support three languages, which can be adjusted using a language switch.

9: The website must support a preview mode where the editor can view a draft version of the product/main page/category page.
