How to Set up an Article Archive

Group your articles monthly in Layout & Design Tool

As a publisher, every article you create grows a wealthy library of content that should be preserved and organized. With RebelMouse, you can enable our Archives function in Layout & Design Tool to easily see articles within a specific time frame. The feature shows archived articles organized by year and month.

Here's what an archive page looks like:


Once in Layout & Design Tool, navigate to the Archives option using the hamburger menu (☰):

Once there, you will see the following three elements available to use within your Archives:

Archive Headline: This will be the header of your archives page.

Archive List: This is all of the properties you choose to assign to your archives list.

Post Element: This defines how the posts will be set up in your archives list.

Archive List Properties

Below are the different ways you can customize your archives:

Start Date: The date you want to start the list of articles. For example, articles published after January 2.

End Date: The date you want to end the list of articles. For example, articles published until May 3.

Here's an example of how to set up start and end dates in Layout & Design tool:

Source for Archive List: Choose from your current site or a section page.

Grouping: Currently, you can group your archive list by months. If your start and end dates are January 2019–March 2019, you'll see articles grouped by January, February, and March.

Post Count Checkbox: This will show how many posts are in each archive request. When grouped by month, this will show as March(26), for example.

Element Class for Show Menu Action: You can set the class for your archive list using this property.

Action on Menu Styles: Define set styles with this property.

Here's how the setup for Element Class and Action on Menu Styles appears in Layout & Design Tool:

Archive Styles

For Archive List, you can style the article, headline, colors, and other elements to match the rest of your site. The following styles are available:

Google Made Major Changes to Its Formula for Page Speed. Here’s What to Do About It in 2022.

Make sure your site is set up for success in 2022.

In the spring of 2020, Google let the world know that its Core Web Vitals would become the new benchmark for measuring a site's performance in its search results, known as the page experience update. Fast forward to more than a year later in August 2021 when, after much anticipation, Google's page experience update became official.

Since its rollout, developers have felt the impact of how their publishing platforms stack up against the new standard. Important decisions around the architecture of your site can now make or break your site's performance in the eyes of Google.

HTTP Archive, a tracking platform that crawls the web to identify trends and record historical patterns, has revealed how top content management systems (CMS) have weathered the page experience update through the creation of its Core Web Vitals Technology Report. RebelMouse consistently outperforms major CMS platforms on Google's most critical metrics since its rollout and into January 2022:

Luckily, performing well on Core Web Vitals is possible with thoughtful, strategic changes to your site’s codebase. Here's what you need to know and how we can help.

Why Affiliate Marketing Is the #1 E-commerce Choice for Media Companies

RebelMouse offers its intuitive e-commerce tech without a total site replatform

The COVID-19 pandemic solidified the prominence of e-commerce as the top way to shop instead of just a popular alternative to brick-and-mortar stores. In fact, it's estimated that 95% of purchases will be made online by 2040. But not every company is an e-commerce company. So how can publishers of all types capitalize on the hot online shopping market?

Luckily, the flexibility of the open web means that there are user-friendly paths to securing e-commerce revenue without actually selling products of your own. One of the best ways to achieve this is through affiliate marketing.

Here’s a brief breakdown of what will be covered in this article:
