Content Feeds: Choosing a Section and How to Display Your Content
As you're setting up your site, you'll want to import your content from the various feeds where it already exists. The best way to do this is to connect those accounts to RebelMouse — this way your site will be populated with all of your original content, directly from your social media outlets.
You'll be able to adjust the settings of how this content is displayed, published, and distributed. A seamless way to integrate and curate your articles and social posts in one place!
Let's get started.
Step 1: Click on the hamburger menu (☰) on the top-left part of your screen to open up the navigation menu and select "Content Feeds."
Step 2: Add the accounts you want to pull content from.
You'll be asked to authorize each account as you add them. You can see below that I've successfully added my Instagram account.
Step 3: Adjust the settings for your Content Feeds.
In RebelMouse, you have several options for how content is published to your site. This means that as you continue to post via the accounts you've added to the system in step two, that content will appear on the platform according to your preferences. To view these settings, click the pull-down menu next to "Publish" on the accounts you wish to edit.
If you select the "Drafts" option, incoming posts will be stored in the drafts section of RebelMouse. You will then be able to review them individually and publish them to your site when they're ready to go.
If you select the "Publish" option, incoming posts will automatically be published to your site as you post them on your linked accounts.
Under the "Publish" option you'll find a list of sections. In this example, mine say "Home" and "Popular." In order to give your content a place to go, you must choose at least one section for the posts to appear under if you want to use the "Publish" setting. If you don't, your linked content will not show up on your site.
Step 4: Wait for your content to load.
Once you've linked your accounts and updated your preferences, content will automatically begin to pull from your linked accounts.
Please Note: It may take up to 48 hours for all content to load into the platform. Please be patient!
