Announcement: Big Changes Made to RebelMouse’s Creative Agency Team

On this gorgeous spring day in April 2019, I am very proud to announce the promotion of several key members on RebelMouse's team. They are all brilliant people who work closely with our most important clients, as well as our engineering, product, and design teams, to deliver the best sites on the internet. Please join me in congratulating them!


Sandra Orlic — Chief Creative Officer

I have never in my career met someone with the intellectual and creative capacity of Sandra. Since she began two years ago as an account manager at RebelMouse, literally every client she has worked with has sent me a personal love note about her help and involvement in bringing everything in a project together.

At RebelMouse, creativity is not just something we bring to the table as a service — we enable creativity in your own teams as well. Sandra has proven time and time again to have an inherent talent for bringing out the creative ideas in our clients and our own internal teams. Perhaps more importantly, she is incredibly talented at turning creative ideas into plans that get executed on time.

We believe deeply in continuously iterating based on data, new ideas, and opportunities. Sandra's personal passion and connection with the growth of our clients and our platform has brought happiness to them, to our team, and to me personally. Laughter comes quickly to Sandra and makes what we do fun. When Sandra is in a meeting, I will often hear a lot of giggling from her and others on the call. Nothing is a more wonderful North Star for creativity than happiness and laughter. These are only possible when everyone feels safe, comfortable, oriented, and enabled.

Soo Youn Lee — Director of Enterprise

Soo has been with RebelMouse for four years, and during her time she has focused most of her work on United Airlines, a flagship client of our company. Soo has a deep understanding of not just our platform, but also how to coordinate large-scale custom developments for the Fortune 500.

She is a strong communicator with exceptional organizational skills, which results in all of her projects being delivered on time. With a keen eye for design, she works closely with our clients and design team on translating ideas and visions into wonderful designs.

RebelMouse helps brands become new media companies, and there is nobody in the world better than Soo at getting on the ground to make it all come together to move the needle.

Amanda Alves — Director of Technical Account Management

Amanda joined RebelMouse one year ago. From the very first week on the job, we could tell Amanda was special. Not only was she taking projects live that very same week, but her passion for teaching and building community was clearly exceptional.

Amanda truly understands our platform and how it can be customized, and she understands the code and approaches it takes to get it done in a way that results in exceptional page speed scores and high-quality code.

She is a gifted and talented teacher, and under her leadership the technical account management team finds support and enablement, as well as a leader who can roll up her sleeves and help everyone meet deadlines. She won both my and all of her clients' respect immediately, and the whole team at RebelMouse thinks the world of her.

Adam Taylor — Director of Rebel Support

Adam has been an account manager at RebelMouse for two years. During his time here, he has worked with a wide variety of clients, ranging from the Fortune 1000 to large-scale media companies to non-profits making the world a better place.

He has a deep understanding of how our platform can be used strategically to accomplish goals, and how it can be customized to match the exact requirements of our clients.

RebelMouse as a platform has grown substantially since its nascent days. We now reach over 50 million people a month and have one of the largest site networks in the world. Having Adam lead the team that directly helps support our clients through their many years on our platform is a very exciting step for us as a company.

How to Categorize Your Post Order

Use the Order Property feature to set up your content's best flow

Creating content isn't just a simple process of writing, editing, and publishing. There's an important amount of strategy needed to ensure your articles get the visibility they deserve. Nailing down a solid plan for your content's structure and order is important to make sure every post has the opportunity to reach its maximum audience.

In Layout & Design Tool, there's an Order Property feature within a Posts element that allows you to order the posts on your page by several different categories, including title, recency, and primacy. Here's what the setup looks like:

Introducing the Paywall Element

Customize which content your users see for free

The rise of the subscription model has continued to climb over the past few years, and it took an even larger upward turn after the start of 2020's COVID-19 crisis. For publishers, a smart paywall strategy will not only improve user experience, but build sustainable revenue for your business to thrive. Subscriptions can also be a golden ticket to strong user loyalty. It's estimated that 80–90% of the people who are paying for digital subscriptions now are at least somewhat likely to still be paying for access next year.

Cater to New Users With Silent Login

Bypass the sign in process for special events, contests, and more

Since RebelMouse supports creating online communities, we make it easy for users to sign up for sites on our network using their email address and social profiles. Now, there's a Silent Login element for when you would like one of your users to silently log in to add a post.

The Silent Login element gives new users the ability to sign up for your site without needing to complete the typical email sign-up process. This is ideal for sponsored posts, contests, events, and job postings. For example, if you're running a contest for the best Halloween costume photos, you can use a Silent Login element to create a workflow that allows users to submit their photos for review via Entry Editor without first having to create an account for your site. The experience for non-logged-in users is completely customizable.

Inside RebelMouse’s Regression Testing

Even the smallest software update can change how entire systems function. Running tests after each update, called regression tests, ensures that every element of our platform is still working properly. RebelMouse runs regression tests continuously to increase efficiency as our functionalities expand and new features are introduced.

For each update of a production branch, we automatically begin regression tests. After tests are completed, we generate and review reports, and if there are any unexpected changes, we create tickets to revert changes and fix issues.

Here's a rundown of the different kinds of regression tests we perform:

How to Add a Link to User Names

Use code to link users to their profiles

RebelMouse makes it easy for content creators to build dynamic and engaging communities. Each user can have their own username, permissions, and profile. A user's profile can also be linked to via their username anytime it appears on your site.

There are two ways to add this link:

1. Add the Username as a Link to an <a> Tag

HTML:

<a href="#" id="my_username">PROFILE</a>

JavaScript:

<script type="text/lazy-javascript" priority="10">
var user_data_for_use;
setTimeout(function(){
{{require}}(['settings'], function (settings) {
user_data_for_use=settings;
document.getElementById("my_username").setAttribute("href","/u/"+settings.user_site.name);
});},1000);
</script>

Upon page load, the code above will change the value of the href attribute to href="/u/username_of_user" for any element that uses id="my_username.".

2. Insert the Username as Text Inside a <span> Tag

HTML:

<span id="my_username"></span>

JavaScript:

<script type="text/lazy-javascript" priority="10">
var user_data_for_use;
setTimeout(function(){
{{require}}(['settings'], function (settings) {
user_data_for_use=settings;
document.getElementById("my_username").innerHTML=settings.user_site.name
});},1000);
</script>

Upon page load, the code above will insert the username inside a <span> tag as text by referencing id="my_username."
