Inside the Posts Dashboard
The Posts Dashboard is kind of like your "home page" on RebelMouse. The dashboard is where you can create, edit, and update all of your posts.
Filters in Posts Dashboard
We've implemented filters that allow users to easily find exactly what they need in their Posts Dashboard. You can now customize your search results by:
- Creators You Follow
- Post Status
- Post Type
Under the Creator column you can see the author of each post. Hover over their avatar to see when they joined your website and the total number of posts they have created.
Easy-to-Use Search Queries
In the same slick user interface, you can also create search queries and combine them with your filtered results:
- Post Search
- Creator Search With Ajax Autocomplete
- Community Search
Here's how the workflow looks in action:
