The Siteimprove CMS plugin bridges the gap between the Cascade content management system (CMS) and the Siteimprove Intelligence Platform. Now you can scan your website for errors as soon as a page is published, allowing you to fix mistakes, optimize content, and manage your site more efficiently.

What does it do?

The integration between Siteimprove and Cascade streamlines workflow efficiencies for your web team. With the Plugin, your team can fix errors and optimize content directly in the editing environment. Once a page is published, any changes you make are re-checked instantly – reducing time your team spends on manual tasks.

The Siteimprove CMS Add-On provides insights into*:

  • Misspellings and broken links
  • Readability levels
  • Accessibility issues (A, AA, AAA conformance level)
  • High-priority policies
  • SEO: technical, content, UX, and mobile
  • Page visits and page views
  • Feedback rating and comments
  • Get insights into the impact of unpublishing a specific page.
  • URL Shortener data and its impact on your digital assets

Review impact before unpublishing

You can now use the plugin to check if unpublishing a page will have an impact on your site. For example, you'll be able to see if deleting a page will affect your SEO, or if users would lose access to important documents and links.
If the plugin identifies any potential issues, you'll be able to make informed changes if you decide to unpublish a page. Read more about our CMS plugin

Please note that we have changed our minimum requirements for secure communication in relations to our plugins and we will be upgrading our Transport Layer Security (TLS) to use version 1.2. All our customers using our plugin for CMS platforms based on the .NET technology are required to update the TLS version to TLS 1.2. To learn more, please read this security blog post from Siteimprove's Information Security Manager, Victor-Alexandru Truica.
