Looking for installation guides for other Drupal versions?

This module enables two main features:

  • Easily switch from Silktide to the appropriate editor page inside Drupal to make quick content updates.

  • New or updated pages on your site will be automatically checked in Silktide when published, so that your scores are always up-to-date.

Installing/activating the module

You will need Drupal administrator access to install our Drupal module. This guide should be read in conjunction with the Installing Drupal modules guide on the Drupal site.

Import module via URL

Go to the module’s project page at and copy the URL for the version of the module you want to use.

In your Drupal site:

  1. Log in as Admin

  2. Open the Extend screen

  3. Select Install new module and paste in the URL of the .tar.gz file

Using Composer to install module

If you maintain your Drupal site using composer, just add composer require 'drupal/silktide:^9.0' to your composer.json file and perform ‘composer update’.

Activating the module

After importing the module:

  1. Select the Enable newly added modules link shown or go to the Extend screen

  2. Tick the box next to Silktide

  3. Select either Install or Enable

Configuring the module

In your Silktide account:

  1. Open your website report

  2. Select Settings > Integrations

  3. If there are no existing integrations configured, select New CMS to create a new Drupal integration

  4. Copy the API key displayed:

In your Drupal admin:

  1. Open the Configuration screen

  2. Select Silktide under the Web Services listing

  3. In the API key field on the Silktide Configuration page, paste the key you copied from Silktide

  4. Select Save Configuration

Retesting your site

You will need to retest your site in Silktide for these changes to take effect.

Page updates or new page publications in Drupal should trigger a test for that page in Silktide.

Navigating from Silktide to Drupal

If everything has been configured correctly and once the report has finished running, you should find a CMS button when viewing a single page inside the Inspector and beside your pages listed in the Inventory.

Selecting the CMS buttons will open the page editor in your CMS for the relevant page.
