Introducing: Entry Editor Upgrades

RebelMouse is a community of content creators who know what it takes to create contagious media. That's why we are always improving on the creation process. We're constantly perfecting a workflow that sets up each piece of content for revenue-focused, social success.

Our Entry Editor is the ultimate toolset. It's the intersection where content, social, and distribution finally bleed together. We've made some innovative updates to our Entry Editor to make the content creation process even better. Here's the latest:


New Preview View

Now you can preview your post anytime within the same window of the Entry Editor to see your work transform in real time. And when you're ready to get back to work? Simply click "Edit" to return back to the Entry Editor interface at any time.

New Mobile Media Search with Infinite Scroll

Social curation on mobile has never been easier. With this updated feature, blend together social elements to make your content multidimensional (because only talking about yourself is boring).

When using our listicle tool, you can now insert multiple images and videos within the body of your post. For example, writing a story on rock climbing? Pull up the five best Facebook videos of rock climbing, embed Instagram posts from industry influencers, and even sprinkle in some GIFs from GIPHY if you want. The best part? The search results are infinite.

Click here to learn more about mobile social curation. This feature is also available on desktop.

Slideshows in Listicles

We love a good listicle. Always have, always will. But now we've taken listicles to the next level by allowing each list point to become a multimedia slideshow. Vice versa — you can also turn your slideshow into a listicle just as easily. Either way, this feature transforms your content into bite-sized pieces that are apt for social sharing across platforms.

Click here for step-by-step instructions on how to make your listicle the best it can be. The results are stunning.

Email Influencers on Every Post

Our Entry Editor is designed to reach influencers on a variety of outreach levels before, during, and after publish. Find potential sharing partners on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, and use our proprietary technology to email them a message. You can identify email search results via page tag, add news ones manually, and even edit the message template directly from the editor.

The power of name recognition is real, so make sure every page, profile, and influencer who would be interested in your content has a chance to see it. It's why a distribution strategy is so important and it's the backbone of our product.

Update to Social Scheduling

We're obsessed with bleeding together social + content. We believe the two are no longer separate strategies to be managed individually. That's why we are constantly updating our social scheduling tools.

Now, schedule your Facebook + Twitter posts via two different tabs within the Entry Editor. This allows you to never have social as an afterthought and to customize your copy for each platform easily.

Upgrade to Lead Media

Say goodbye to the pop-up that used to appear when you inserted lead media. Now, when you add an image or video to the lead media section, the cropping tool won't appear at all. It will be cropped with face detection automatically, freeing you from the unwanted previous steps. If you want to crop it manually, you can click the cropping icon.

Suggested Facebook Targets

We've taken social sharing one step further. Now, you can connect with influencers in a flash. When you add a Facebook video from a URL, you will automatically see that Facebook video's author as a suggested Facebook target to tag + interact with.

Automated Mentioning

Mentioning the author is fast and simple, thanks to our automated mentioning tool. @mentioning doesn't even have to be typed in. You can simply click to @mention one of the targets we suggested, as shown above.

Multiple Select

If you multiple select several Facebook videos in the Add Media bar, the authors of those videos will show up as suggested targets in the scheduling tool. See it all in action in the video above. 👆

Seamless Publishing

Hey there — FYI: The reason we have so many frequent updates is pretty special. RebelMouse is a centralized CMS, so we push out multiple product updates to our site network every day. This is different from decentralized CMS solutions like WordPress, which require updates to be employed to all sites — all 87+ million of them — one by one.

How to Include Interactive Elements in Posts

Enhance your articles with rich and creative media

Every article is a fresh chance to grab new readers and nurture loyal followers. This is why we give creators every opportunity to build content rich with media elements that enhance every reader's experience.

Add More Layers to Your Content

You can easily add interactive elements, like charts, to posts on our platform. For example, if you need to embed iframe code into a post, this can be done via our Add Media Bar. To do so, click the code icon (< >):

A text box will appear so you can insert your code:

Embedded Code Across Platforms

One important thing to keep in mind is that Google AMP, AppleNews, and Facebook Instant Articles will not always support embedded code. So if you use an iframe, it's best to turn off distribution to those channels for that particular post. If you have a lot of posts that require embedded code, this could be problematic for growth across those important platforms.

If you do want to use an iframe on a post destined for Google AMP distribution, it can be possible if the iframe is not at the top of the page or within the first 75% of the viewport when the page is scrolled to the top (whichever is smaller). AMP is a fast technology designed for mobile users and iframes are loaded using arbitrary timing that AMP's technology cannot ensure. For this reason, it's suggested that iframes be included in places that are not visible by users upon load.

If you have an article that needs to include an iframe at the top of the page, or within the first 75% of the viewport, AMP can be turned off for that individual article within Entry Editor.

If you don't need an interactive chart to be interactive in nature, can turn it into an image and upload it directly to your post. This way it will work on all platforms, including Google AMP, Apple News, and Facebook Instant Articles. This option, when possible, is ideal to ensure you're optimized for page speed.

Take Advantage of Shortcodes

Another great way to embed media is through our shortcodes functionality. Click here to learn more about shortcodes. Shortcodes can also inserted using the Add Media Bar. Click the brackets icon ([ ]) to choose the shortcode you want to use.

Here's an example of a chart on an article page that's been inserted using a shortcode:

Shortcodes Dashboard: Dynamic Media in Just a Few Clicks

Create multidimensional content with easy-to-find shortcodes

We believe static media is dead, and that every piece of content should be multidimensional and engaging. This is why our platform enables creators so they can add dynamic media to their content in easy and efficient ways.

One simple way to add interactive content to any post is through the use of shortcodes. Shortcodes are small snippets of code that are easier to remember than longer sequences. They typically will activate a feature or embed media into an article.
