A Seamless Transition: Introducing RebelMouse to New Team Members

Behind every site powered by RebelMouse, there's a team of dedicated content creators, storytellers, developers, and leaders who are working to make sure their site is growing and flourishing. Sometimes, these teams fluctuate as new members join and others leave.

When these changes occur, we endeavor to make sure these transitions are as seamless as possible from our side. RebelMouse's platform is made up of a robust suite of intuitive tools, but we want to make sure that the new key leaders within every organization we work with are able to quickly understand the capabilities and benefits of our CMS.

This is why we offer a services package that addresses the onboarding of any new key hires, whether it's a new Chief Technology Officer, Chief Executive Officer, or Editor in Chief. During this engagement, new team members can get to know the ins and outs of RebelMouse, including current strategies, initiatives, and continuing opportunities.

Here's our recommended plan that focuses on three main areas:

Strategy (5 hours): Understand how RebelMouse's platform can shape the entire company's roadmap, including content, monetization, growth, and social strategies.

Training (15 hours): Get customized and personal training on how to get the most out of our CMS. This can be catered to any specific feature or part of the platform.

Technical Reviews (20 hours): It's common for new leadership to want to make changes to the organization's site. We can use these services hours to review any new code, give our recommendations on new strategies, and point to best practices within our platform.

These services hours can be distributed in any way you think is best for your organization. Also, be sure to check out these customized guides on how our powerful publishing platform revolutionizes specific areas of your business:

How to Include Interactive Elements in Posts

Enhance your articles with rich and creative media

Every article is a fresh chance to grab new readers and nurture loyal followers. This is why we give creators every opportunity to build content rich with media elements that enhance every reader's experience.

Add More Layers to Your Content

You can easily add interactive elements, like charts, to posts on our platform. For example, if you need to embed iframe code into a post, this can be done via our Add Media Bar. To do so, click the code icon (< >):

A text box will appear so you can insert your code:

Embedded Code Across Platforms

One important thing to keep in mind is that Google AMP, AppleNews, and Facebook Instant Articles will not always support embedded code. So if you use an iframe, it's best to turn off distribution to those channels for that particular post. If you have a lot of posts that require embedded code, this could be problematic for growth across those important platforms.

If you do want to use an iframe on a post destined for Google AMP distribution, it can be possible if the iframe is not at the top of the page or within the first 75% of the viewport when the page is scrolled to the top (whichever is smaller). AMP is a fast technology designed for mobile users and iframes are loaded using arbitrary timing that AMP's technology cannot ensure. For this reason, it's suggested that iframes be included in places that are not visible by users upon load.

If you have an article that needs to include an iframe at the top of the page, or within the first 75% of the viewport, AMP can be turned off for that individual article within Entry Editor.

If you don't need an interactive chart to be interactive in nature, can turn it into an image and upload it directly to your post. This way it will work on all platforms, including Google AMP, Apple News, and Facebook Instant Articles. This option, when possible, is ideal to ensure you're optimized for page speed.

Take Advantage of Shortcodes

Another great way to embed media is through our shortcodes functionality. Click here to learn more about shortcodes. Shortcodes can also inserted using the Add Media Bar. Click the brackets icon ([ ]) to choose the shortcode you want to use.

Here's an example of a chart on an article page that's been inserted using a shortcode:

Shortcodes Dashboard: Dynamic Media in Just a Few Clicks

Create multidimensional content with easy-to-find shortcodes

We believe static media is dead, and that every piece of content should be multidimensional and engaging. This is why our platform enables creators so they can add dynamic media to their content in easy and efficient ways.

One simple way to add interactive content to any post is through the use of shortcodes. Shortcodes are small snippets of code that are easier to remember than longer sequences. They typically will activate a feature or embed media into an article.
