How to Use the Save Article Feature

Access your favorite articles in one place

The Save Article feature on RebelMouse allows users that are signed in to easily bookmark articles they like so they can quickly access them in one place.

How It Works

When a signed-in user clicks on the Save Article button, the icon will change color to denote that the article has been saved. The articles are then accessible on the user's profile page.

If a user clicks the Save Article button when they're logged out, or if they're not a member of the site, they will be redirected to a sign-in page.


Icon Options

The default icon we use for the Save Article feature is a little red heart icon. You can find it in the top left-hand corner of articles.

The Saved Ribbon icon is the most popular version of our Save Article icon options. It takes a few CSS additions to change the default heart icon to the ribbon icon:

How to Set It Up

First, enter the Layout & Design Tool and navigate to the page layout that displays your posts. Locate the element where the posts are displayed and then open the section for Element Order on the right-hand side of the editor.

Find the option for Like Button and enable it by clicking on it, ensuring that the text turns from gray to black:

If you prefer to use the ribbon icon over the heart, add the following CSS to a Custom CSS element.

<style>
  .like-button .like-label {
    display:none;
  }
  .widget .like-button {
    padding: 0 0 10px;
    left: 30px;
    right: auto;
    top: 20px;
    text-align: center;
    position: absolute;
    z-index: 1;
  }
  .like-btn {
    position:relative;
  }
  .like-button .heart {
    color: #000;
    background: #fff;
    padding: 1px 0 4px;
    border-radius: 5px;
    width: 72px;
    text-align: center;
  }
  .like-button .fa-heart:after {
    content: "saved";
    padding: 0 0 0 6px;
    font-size: 12px;
    text-transform: uppercase;
    display: inline-block;
    vertical-align: middle;
    font-weight: bold;
    font-family: tahoma;
  }
  .like-button .fa-heart-o:before {color: #696969;}
  .like-button .fa-heart-o:after {
    content: "save";
    color: #696969;
    padding: 0 0 0 6px;
    font-size: 12px;
    text-transform: uppercase;
    display: inline-block;
    vertical-align: middle;
    font-family: tahoma;
    font-weight: bold;
  }
  .like-button .heart:before {
    content: "\f02e";
    font-size: 17px;
    vertical-align: middle;
  }
  @media (max-width:767px){
    .like-button .heart:before {
      font-size: 13px;
    }
    .like-button .fa-heart-o:after {
      font-size: 11px;
    }
    .like-button .heart {
      padding: 0 6px 4px;
      width: 58px;
    }
    .widget .like-button {
      top: 0;
      left: 10px;
    }
  }
</style>

Once the custom CSS is added, click Save. Then, double-check the icon you chose to make sure it appears on your site's articles.

If the buttons do not appear after completing these steps, please let your account manager know or email support@rebelmouse.com. Happy saving!

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 2022:

Getting superior scores on Google's performance benchmarks isn't easy, either. 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. Their study found that only 33% of sites on the web are passing Core Web Vitals.

data from Ahrefs tracked on a line chart finds that shows only 33% of sites on the web pass Google's Core Web Vitals From Ahrefs.

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.
