Community members can easily create and submit content to be reviewed and published on any site. To make it easy for members to learn how to use RebelMouse, our Stepped Entry Editor walks them through the process of creating an article. It also provides site editors and administrators with the ability to limit access to the features available to community users.

Customizations and Available Options

RebelMouse clients can choose which information they want a community user to fill out and which fields they would like to make required when creating a new article. Our support team (or your dedicated account manager) will ask you what information you would like to expose so we can configure it on our back end.

In the example above, there are three pages that a community user would need to fill out to send the article on to an editor for review: Main Post Editor, Channels Tab, and SEO Tab.

Below are all of the current options supported in our Stepped Entry Editor. Remember, these are the features you can enable or disable for your community members:

  • Main Post Editor: The main body of your article.
  • Channels Tab: This gives you the ability to categorize your article on your site by adding tags and sections to it.
  • Comments Tab: These are internal comments on the article that the editorial team uses to communicate with one another.
  • SEO Tab: This lets you configure your article for search engine optimization.
  • Facebook Tab: This lets you set up social scheduling to Facebook.
  • Twitter Tab: This lets you set up social scheduling to Twitter.
  • Preview Tab: This lets you preview your article before sending it for review or final publish.

If you have any questions about our Stepped Entry Editor, email support@rebelmouse.com.

In 2022, 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 2022 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.

RebelMouse Q1 2021 Platform Updates

Speed, performance, and Core Web Vitals enhancements

Click here to read our Q2 2021 platform performance updates!

At RebelMouse, we pour our souls into making sure that our platform is always the most modern, high-performance CMS on the market. In fact, we invested over $100,000 worth of hours into our platform in Q1 2021 alone. This has resulted in updates and performance enhancements that publishers would have to pay for on their own to make happen on any other platform, such as WordPress. We're proud to be at a level of scale where we can invest this way into our platform, and we will continue to invest at this rate every quarter moving forward just as we have in the past.

Here are the major updates that we've added to the platform in Q1.

It’s been more than two years since Google let the world know that its Core Web Vitals metrics are the new benchmark for measuring a site's performance in its search results. Developers have since 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.

Now, the definition of what makes up Core Web Vitals could change. A new responsiveness metric called Interaction to Next Paint (INP) may replace First Input Delay (FID). During Google’s I/O conference in May 2022, it was announced that the INP metric was still in its experimental phase. You can watch the announcement here:

Most publishers are bogged down with day-to-day content strategy and creation, which usually means their technology suffers. That translates into poor search rankings, traffic dips, and loss of revenue.

Even so, the idea of replatforming to a new CMS, migrating your data, and overhauling your site’s architecture can sometimes feel more daunting than simply fixing the issues your website currently faces. But the stumbling block here is that most publishers aren’t even sure what the exact problems are with their current site.

That’s why RebelMouse offers a free website health check. This comprehensive audit will help you make a data-backed decision on what the best and most cost-effective next steps are to brighten your site’s future. Here’s what our health check includes:
