How to Set Custom Fields for Every User

When you publish to RebelMouse, you don't just get access to a traditional CMS. You're also tapping into an online engagement platform designed to support communities. Building a creators network means your editorial team's content workflow has to operate seamlessly. And this clear path to publish is why clients on our platform can easily set up custom fields they want to show at a profile level for users in their community.


There are four ways to customize these fields:

1. Add New Fields to Our Layout & Design Tool in Global Settings

Set the Name of your field, the Type, and the Control Defaults. This populates the information in the drop-down menu for that field, if that's the type of field you've chosen to set up. You can also select a Default Description that will display in the field.

Here's a video of what you can do in the Global Settings to create your custom fields per profile:

2. Edit Custom Fields in Our Users Dashboard

3. Style Fields in Our Layout & Design Tool

Using the variable {{site.specific_data.$name}}, you can call for the custom field you created for your users and then style it.

4. Double-Check Your Settings on Profile Pages

You can double-check your custom field selections on a user's profile page. This is how it will look, for example, on a profile page after we've created a custom Facebook field and then called for it:
