How to Set up Our Share-to-Slack Integration

Our one-click button allows users to easily share articles to Slack

RebelMouse has the ability to integrate a Share-to-Slack option. Like other social buttons that allow users to quickly share posts to Twitter or Facebook, this feature will work the same way with direct shares to Slack. Here's how it works.

In order to integrate Slack into your site, you first need to create a Slack app. To do this, follow the directions for creating a Slack app in the first video of this article. Please disregard the steps related to webhooks.

Once you've created a Slack app, head over to the navigation bar to add the required permissions.


Then, add the following permissions which are required for our Share-to-Slack feature to work properly.

The next step is to configure the OAuth redirect URL. Click OAuth & Permissions in the left-hand menu under Features, and locate the Redirect URLs section:

Then, add the following URL, substituting "<domain>" with your site's URL:

https://<domain>/core/3partyapi/post_to_slack/share

Click Save URLs.

The next step is to make your newly created app public so that other Slack workspaces have the ability to use it. Click Basic Information in the left-hand menu under Settings, and then select Manage distribution.

Then, select Distribute App.

Be sure all of the options below have a green check mark next to them.

Then, click the Activate Public Distribution button:

You're almost done. Now, click Basic Information in the left-hand menu under Settings again.

Copy two values from the App Credentials section: Client ID and Client Secret.

Once you have these two values, please reach out to your account manager or send a note to support@rebelmouse.com. We will need to plug these values into the back end of RebelMouse. Once completed, you will be able to add a Slack button as one of the social-sharing buttons in Layout & Design Tool.

And now you're good to go! Happy Slacking! If you have any questions, please reach out to your account manager or support@rebelmouse.com today.

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.

An Important Note on Site Quality From Google’s Search Expert

Do you ever wonder if a few typos can impact your site’s search performance? According to Google’s Search Advocate John Mueller, it takes more than just a few grammatical missteps for Google’s crawler to determine your site’s quality.

During a New Year’s Eve Office Hours hangout, Mueller said that if certain portions of a website are deemed low quality, it can negatively impact the site’s search ranking overall. A good example of this is a site that has different language versions within the same domain. If the site has a French-language version that is made up of quality content, but the English translation isn’t up to the same standard, the ranking of the French version of the site could be negatively impacted.
