Sections Dashboard

In the Sections dashboard, you can create and manage sections for specific topics and content within your site.


To access it, click Sections in the lefthand administration panel or type "YourDomain/core/dashboard/sections" in the URL bar:

Once you open the Sections dashboard, you can:

Add new sections:

Remove sections:

Update the section's status to either Public, Private, or Unlisted:

  • Public: The section is open to everyone who visits your site and shows up in your site's navigation menu.
  • Private: The section is only visible to administrators and will not show up in your site's navigation menu.
  • Unlisted: The section is only accessible by URL and will not show up in your site's navigation menu.


Reorder the sections:

As they would appear on your site using the drag-and-drop functionality.

Access Advanced Settings where you have the option to adjust the following in each section:

  • The section's meta title and description:

  • The section's URL slug, while keeping the section's name the same.

  • A link-out URL if you want a section to go to, for example, an online shop.

  • Content tags to automatically pull in any post with the same tag.

After making all of your changes, be sure to click Save.


Select a Primary Section:

When creating a post in the Entry Editor, you have the option to allocate a primary section to that post.

Depending on what URL setup and site design / styling you have, that primary section:

  • Will be displayed in your posts URL or not.

  • Will be displayed in your site's design as the main section label.

How to Thrive in a World Without Ads

Mike Mallazzo, Director of Marketing at Narrativ, recently wrote a post on Medium: "Life After Ads: The recent purchase of TIME should remind publishers of the power a strong brand can wield."

He discusses how some media companies are starting to question their total reliance on digital advertising. With Facebook and Google capturing the majority of revenue in the online advertising space, Mallazzo talks about how some companies are diversifying their revenue streams with models that depend on building loyalty and trust through subscriptions and commerce content in addition to just advertising. He writes:

"Media conglomerates have rediscovered the power of brand equity, offering the most plausible hope for sustainability since the proliferation of the internet."

At RebelMouse, however, we are still seeing digital advertising work. Our clients — such as Dance Magazine — are seeing huge success with digital advertising. But what if you were a media company in a world where traditional digital advertising didn't work at all? What would you do? How would you make money and continue to grow as a company?
