This guide details what the Silktide CMS integration for Jadu does, how to configure it, and how it is used in practice.
This integration enables two main features:
Easily switch from the Silktide application to the appropriate page Jadu to make changes.
New or updated pages in Jadu will be automatically tested in Silktide when published.
