The Top Bar: How Users Find Your Content

We currently offer two types of predefined Top Bar elements that you can use.


Simple

Normal

And you can actually switch between these two versions quite easily.

1. Go to the Layout & Design tool in the left-hand navigation menu.

2. Choose the Top Bar page, and then select the Navbar element.

3. Using the Properties card, you can switch between Top Bar formats with just one click.

4. Don't forget to click Save!

Creating a Custom Top Bar

If you want to get super creative with the design of your Top Bar, you can use custom HTML to design it.

In the Top Bar page of the Layout & Design tool, click the + ADD ELEMENT button in the toolbar and choose the Custom HTML element.

Now you can start coding to design the Top Bar that works best for you. Here's a quick example of a custom Top Bar with an ad tag in it:

<style> /* * Rebelbar custom CSS */.menu-global .main-menu-item a{ color:#fff; }.menu-global .main-menu-item:not(.section):hover > a, .menu-global .main-menu-item:not(.section):hover > div > a { color: #f8873b; background-color: transparent; }.rebelbar__section-links { display: none !important; }.rebelbar .logo { margin-right: 20px; }@media screen and (min-width: 768px) {.rebelbar.skin-simple .rebelbar__inner { max-width: 1100px;}.rebelbar.skin-simple .logo__image { max-width: 350px; max-height:48px;} } @media screen and (min-width: 1024px) {.menu-opened .menu-global{ display:block;}.with-fixed-header .rebelbar .logo { display: block; overflow: hidden; width: 291px;}.rebelbar__section-links { display: block !important;}.rebelbar.skin-simple .rebelbar__section-links{ padding-left:0;}.with-fixed-header .rebelbar.skin-simple .rebelbar__section-links{ padding-left:40px;}.with-floating-shares .rebelbar__section-links { display: none !important;} }@media screen and (min-width: 1050px) {.rebelbar .logo { display: none;} } /* * Topnav Custom CSS */.topnav-custom { display: none; }.topnav-custom .topnav-custom__logo { background-image: url(<img src="https://assets.rbl.ms/8384194/2000x.png" />); background-repeat: no-repeat; background-size: contain; background-position: left; overflow: hidden; width: 290px; min-height: 50px; margin: 20px 0; vertical-align: top; display: none; }.topnav-custom .topnav-custom__ad { width: 728px; height: 90px; margin: 0 auto; }@media screen and (min-width: 1024px) {.topnav-custom { display: block; height: 160px; padding: 15px 0; box-sizing: border-box; overflow: auto; max-width: 1100px; margin: 0 auto;} }@media screen and (min-width: 1050px) {.topnav-custom .topnav-custom__logo { display: inline-block;}.topnav-custom .topnav-custom__ad {float: right;} } </style>
<div class="topnav-custom"><a href="/" class="topnav-custom__logo site-logo"></a><div class="ad-placeholder ad-placeholder--top"><div class="ad-placeholder-inner"><!-- /194487792/ADTAG_ATF_Desktop --> <div id='div-gpt-ad-1479093654204-0' style='height:90px; width:728px;'> <script> googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-1479093654204-0'); }); </script> </div></div></div></div>

And here's how it looks on the site:

Note: Please remember to remove the default Top Bar that your site template comes with before pushing your customized code live. Otherwise, you'll end up having two different Top Bars show up on your site.

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 2022:

Getting superior scores on Google's performance benchmarks isn't easy, either. The Ahrefs blog analyzed Core Web Vitals data from the Chrome User Experience Report (CrUX), which is data from actual Chrome users, to see how the web stacks up against Core Web Vitals. Their study found that only 33% of sites on the web are passing Core Web Vitals.

data from Ahrefs tracked on a line chart finds that shows only 33% of sites on the web pass Google's Core Web Vitals From Ahrefs.

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.
