With our AI headline generator tool, you can create enticing, click-worthy titles for your articles, product pages, social media captions, content tags, and more. You can also customize AI prompts to manage your content production in one location with our OpenAI integration.

RebelMouse’s AI-powered tools help you save time searching for what you need to support traffic-generating content. This article covers how to create AI prompts for your editorial pages and customize your own AI tabs for specialized content.

How to Customize Headline Prompts in Entry Editor

How to Create and Customize Site-Wide AI Prompts

You can manually modify the headline generator prompt for each article, or create a comprehensive AI prompt that will work across all of your desired content. This feature is helpful if you want to avoid typing requests into the AI, or have content that adheres to a particular format.

All users can benefit from AI-generated headlines tailored to your website or brand's unique tone and feel. You can customize Entry Editor's default prompts for your site or specific pages.

Follow these steps to customize your site-wide AI prompts:

1. Click the hamburger menu (☰) in the upper-left corner of your Posts Dashboard and select Layout & Design Tool.

All your filled-in fields, such as the headline, social headline, and teaser headline should be in the Headline AI Right Rail element and ready for editing. If any fields are missing, you can use an Optimizer Field to add and customize them.

4. To add an Optimizer Field, follow this visual tutorial:

You can add as many field sections as you like to the headline generator using the Optimizer Field. In the example below, we chose the Primary Tag as an additional field.

In Entry Editor, the Primary Tag field will appear as follows in the Headlines tab:

Best Practices for Creating an AI Prompt

The AI prompt is compatible with any field, but it specifically considers the {{postBody}}, which contains the text for the body and listicle sections. Other components such as {{headline}}, {{subheadline}}, and {{primary_tag}} should be specified inside brackets.

How to Create a Custom AI Tab for Entry Editor

Your custom AI button personalizes your content creation and can be added to Entry Editor as an independent tab from the headline generator. If you want everything in one location, you can also add these fields under the Headlines tab.

Follow these steps to create a custom AI tab:

1. Click the hamburger menu (☰) in the upper-left corner of your Posts Dashboard and select Layout & Design Tool.

2. Then, click the hamburger menu under Global Settings, select Pages, and click Entry Editor.

Here are some common questions and answers to help you customize your AI prompts in Layout & Design Tool.

1. How do I remove/disable a Headline element?

You can use the optimizer field to disable a Headline element if you want to hide or remove it. This will deactivate Entry Editor's ability to add this field name under the Headlines tab. In the example below, the Teaser Headline element is turned off.

2. How do I update an AI prompt?

Any AI prompt can be updated using the optimizer field. This change can be seen in Entry Editor under the Headlines tab. For example, in the screenshot below, we are changing a prompt that will generate different article titles.
