New: Updates to Version History + Diffs Tool

New: Updates to Version History + Diffs Tool

RebelMouse is always on a mission to empower content teams big and small, because creating engaging communities takes organized collaboration. This is why we've recently made some upgrades to our Version History tool to give users a full snapshot of the path to publish.


Here's a breakdown of the new changes:

Version History in the Right Rail

We now show a live play-by-play version of your editing history in the right rail. You can view it by clicking "Timeline" in the top bar of our Layout & Design tool:

Each milestone represents an action taken. We display what the action was, where it occurred, the name of the element that was modified, and how long it ago happened.

You can also choose whether or not to display code to see what snippet of XML was modified:

You'll also notice a "Full Version History" button in the top-right area of the Timeline:

Clicking the button will take you to a full-screen page that has all your saved versions (in code mode) for the current page. In this example, we're looking at the Home page:

In the top-right corner, there's a "Revert" button in case you want to return to any of your previous versions. If you want to go back to the design view, you can simply click the back button on your browser.

Here's a video of the new features in action:

Diff Support: Know Every Code Change

When viewing your Full Version History, you'll see the diffs in a page's code whenever you click on a specific version. Each time a version is saved, a new entry will be shown in the list.

You can also see the previous line of code highlighted in red, and what was modified highlighted in green:

In 2023, Publishers Take Back Control With Subscription Success

Users are ready to pay for content that delivers

The Rise of the Mature User

It's been a long and winding path, but in 2023 the subscription model continues its upward trajectory as a top revenue strategy for publishers of all sizes. The tug of war between platforms and publishers reached its peak in the last few years of the previous decade, leaving users desperate for a modern user experience that's clear of any clutter from the duopoly that is Google and Facebook. This is why intelligent paywall models are a top choice for users looking to consume content right from the source. When done correctly, the strategy can work for any type of media. The New York Times, a frequent showpiece example of the power of paywalls, is constantly reporting record-busting subscription numbers, with 7.6 million digital subscriptions in 2021.

And it all makes perfect sense. The subscription model eliminates the middleman — such as the platforms — so readers get the experience and content they want, and publishers get the cash they need.
