Calendar View in RebelMouse Dashboard

The RebelMouse Posts Dashboard is your one-stop shop for details about and accessing your posts, both as drafts or published content. This includes the date of publication (or scheduled publication date) and various details surrounding search and social optimizations, among other data.

We also offer a calendar view version of the dashboard. You can easily access a variety of calendar views by adding certain additions to your base URL:

  • Weekly Calendar: /r/dashboard/posts/calendar/week
  • Monthly Calendar: /r/dashboard/posts/calendar/month
  • List Calendar: /r/dashboard/posts/calendar/list

So, for instance, if your base URL is:

Then to access the weekly calendar view, you would update your URL to the following:

Each of the views have similar core features as well as view-specific features. Let’s explore. We’ll start with the weekly calendar.

Weekly Calendar

The weekly calendar view shows your content in a weekly viewer, as seen below:

If we start from the top and move our way down, we’ll be able to see all that this powerful tool offers.

First off, you will see in the upper left, a mechanism for scrolling through the calendar weeks. Clicking on the arrows left or right will move you a week earlier or a week later, respectively. This gives you a clear view into what content was published, created, or scheduled during that week. You can also click on the TODAY button to jump back to the current week.

In the far right of the top bar, you’ll see various selectors and filter options. The first button you see allows you to switch from the expanded view to a stacked view, as seen below:

Stacked view of the calendar

The drop-down menu next to it allows you to easily switch between the weekly, monthly, and list views.

Finally, we have robust filtering that allows you to see only the content, or users, or layouts, etc., that matter to you at any moment. Filtering works the same here as in our standard dashboard filters.

Now that we’ve selected the view that we want, let’s take a look at what displays in the calendar itself. On the far left, you’ll see the time (broken down by UTC on the left, and local time on the right — hover to see your time zone!). Moving into the actual calendar, you’ll see your posts that have either been created but not published yet (gray dot) or published (green dot).

If you click on any entry from the hourly view, you’ll expand the entry and see some additional details (these details are always visible from the stacked view).

Close up of article details

You’ll see the time of publication (or time of creation in the case of a draft), as well as the title, author, and sections that the post is in. Finally, you can visit either the live post or Entry Editor by clicking on the arrow or pencil icon, respectively.

Monthly Calendar

The monthly calendar has many of the same features as the weekly calendar, but gives you a more zoomed-out view of your content workflow. You can simply click on the drop-down menu in the top right and select Month.

You’ll notice that the content that displays in the daily view for the monthly calendar is the same as in the weekly. If you have more posts for a single day than can fit in the individual box, you can click on MORE to see the remaining posts. If you click on a single entry, it’ll open up a pop-up window that gives you detailed information about that post:

Beyond that, all the features that we learned about for the weekly calendar also work here.

List View

The list view is the simplest glimpse into your content schedule. As the name implies, it’s simply a daily list of content that either was published, created, or scheduled for publication:

In 2022, Publishers Take Back Control With Subscription Success

Users are ready to pay for content that delivers

The Rise of the Mature User

It's been a long and winding path, but in 2022 the subscription model continues its upward trajectory as a top revenue strategy for publishers of all sizes. The tug of war between platforms and publishers reached its peak in the last few years of the previous decade, leaving users desperate for a modern user experience that's clear of any clutter from the duopoly that is Google and Facebook. This is why intelligent paywall models are a top choice for users looking to consume content right from the source. When done correctly, the strategy can work for any type of media. The New York Times, a frequent showpiece example of the power of paywalls, is constantly reporting record-busting subscription numbers, with 7.6 million digital subscriptions in 2021.

And it all makes perfect sense. The subscription model eliminates the middleman — such as the platforms — so readers get the experience and content they want, and publishers get the cash they need.

RebelMouse Q1 2021 Platform Updates

Speed, performance, and Core Web Vitals enhancements

Click here to read our Q2 2021 platform performance updates!

At RebelMouse, we pour our souls into making sure that our platform is always the most modern, high-performance CMS on the market. In fact, we invested over $100,000 worth of hours into our platform in Q1 2021 alone. This has resulted in updates and performance enhancements that publishers would have to pay for on their own to make happen on any other platform, such as WordPress. We're proud to be at a level of scale where we can invest this way into our platform, and we will continue to invest at this rate every quarter moving forward just as we have in the past.

Here are the major updates that we've added to the platform in Q1.

The Subscription Model Is Taking off and Competition Has Never Been Steeper

The post-pandemic user landscape is still ripe for subscription revenue

You can get a subscription for everything these days. Whether it’s a cheese-of-the-month club or annual access to read your favorite content, the subscription-based model has continued to gain steam in recent years. In fact, the market for digital subscriptions is valued at $650 billion according to a new report from Lineup, a subscription management solution.

The power of the subscription model has been growing since even before the COVID-19 crisis began, and isn’t showing any signs of slowing as we enter a post-pandemic landscape. According to What’s New in Publishing, Gannett reported a 46% year-over-year increase in digital subscriptions in November 2021, putting them at 1.5M total subscribers. Hearst grew its digital subscriptions by 50% in 2021.

But subscriptions aren’t just for big name publishers. Users in 2022 are ready to pay up for legacy names and new media companies alike, as long as it’s for an experience that’s beneficial to them, reliable, and free of the clutter that can come from third-party platforms. Speaking of platforms, even TikTok and Instagram have started to gauge their audiences’ temperature on subscription experiences. So, the competition has never been steeper for publishers looking to build a subscriber base. Unfortunately, launching a simple paywall may not be enough.

Engagement on the Rise: Why It’s Your Ticket to Loyalty

New data from Chartbeat shows engagement time is increasing despite traffic dips

Getting users to your site is only half the battle. For publishers, it’s now become more critical to focus on how long those users stay on your site — and if they ever come back. Q1 2022 data analyzed by Chartbeat found that engagement is on the rise, even though metrics like pageviews and mobile traffic experienced a decline.

Chartbeat measures engaged time by the “amount of time that readers spend actively engaging with a page — scrolling, clicking, or moving their mouse.” With this in mind, their data showed that most regions in the world registered an average of 30 seconds of engaged time on site in Q1. Readers in Latin America led the results with an average of 34.7 seconds of engaged time.
