This feature helps you load a custom template for a particular section page.

  • An administrator first needs to create a section in the dashboard (Ex: Social Wall).
  • Inside engine/dynamic_content/ create a new section file named section_section-name-here.xml (Ex: section_social-wall.xml).
  • Copy the contents of subpage.xml inside your new template and hack away!
  • Your new custom template will be available on /social-wall url.

Advanced

When most of the template is the same as the original subpage.xml, you should consider making use of the <block> XML tag. This will allow you to make use of inheritance and keep your code cleaner and modular.

Start by creating a block inside your original subpage.xml file:

<block name="body">  <!-- Code placed here will be available on all subpages -->  <!-- Create a new placeholder block you want to use -->  <block name="custom_block_name">    <!-- Code placed here will be overwritten with code in section_section-name-here.xml -->  </block>  <!-- Code placed here will be available on all subpages --></block>

Then in your new template section_section-name-here.xml add this code:

<import_xml path="subpage.xml"> <!-- Inherit subpage.xml markup -->  <!-- This will override the same block in subpage.xml -->  <block name="custom_block_name">    <div> <!-- Code placed here will be available only on section_section-name-here.xml --> </div>  </block></import_xml>

Note: You can use any name for your blocks tag, just change name="custom_block_name" to your liking. Make sure you use the same block name across all your section templates.

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 January 2022:

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.

Why Affiliate Marketing Is the #1 E-commerce Choice for Media Companies

RebelMouse offers its intuitive e-commerce tech without a total site replatform

The COVID-19 pandemic solidified the prominence of e-commerce as the top way to shop instead of just a popular alternative to brick-and-mortar stores. In fact, it's estimated that 95% of purchases will be made online by 2040. But not every company is an e-commerce company. So how can publishers of all types capitalize on the hot online shopping market?

Luckily, the flexibility of the open web means that there are user-friendly paths to securing e-commerce revenue without actually selling products of your own. One of the best ways to achieve this is through affiliate marketing.

Here’s a brief breakdown of what will be covered in this article:
