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:


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 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 today.

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

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, frequently reports on how top content management systems (CMS) have weathered the page experience update through the creation of its Core Web Vitals Technology Report. RebelMouse has consistently outperformed major CMS platforms on Google's most critical metrics throughout the year:

The Ahrefs blog analyzed Core Web Vitals data from the Chrome User Experience Report (CrUX), which is data from actual Chrome users, to see how the web stacks up against Core Web Vitals.
