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.

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.

Keep Search a Priority With SEO-Friendly Image Filenames

There are a lot of factors that go into a successful search engine optimization (SEO) strategy, including performance, structured data, and, of course, choosing the right keyword(s). Our proprietary search technology helps content creators prep every article for success on search. This all-encompassing approach includes the use of SEO-friendly image filenames.

On RebelMouse, if you assign an alt tag to an image in Entry Editor, that alt tag will also become the image's file name. Briefly, alt tags describe images for search engines, and also allow people using screen readers to know what the image is without actually being able to see it. Adding your desired search phase to every alt text field, and in turn every image file name, will reinforce its relevance to Google's crawler, bringing you one step closer to the top of search returns.
