Users Dashboard

We understand that every editorial team is structured differently. Whether you operate your web property with one editor, or have a network of 1,000+ contributors, it's easy to manage your team through our platform.


You can find the Users Dashboard in your site's hamburger menu (☰):


To easily add or remove users to or from the platform, click Users in the lefthand menu or go straight to /core/r_dashboard/users in your browser's URL bar.

Here, you can get a clear view of who has access to your dashboards and exactly what level of permissions. You can also check their bio and picture if you click on the edit pencil icon.

You'll be able to easily see the user's:

  • Username
  • Title (or actual name and last name)
  • Email
  • Role
  • Description
  • Rating
  • Status (if active or banned)
  • Last login

Adding New Users

It's very simple. All you have to do is click on the blue + icon on the bottom-right of your screen, and an empty user lightbox will appear. You can then fill it out. Every user will have its own profile following this URL structure:

Assign a User Dual Roles

If you are publishing on our community platform, you have the ability to assign two different roles to a user. Usually this means the user will have a role on your primary site, and then a different role on your community site.

For example, if a user has a Developer role on the main site and a Guest Writer role on the community site, the user will be able to see Layout & Design Tool to edit your site's design. Additionally, the same user will be able to create drafts for the community site. Click here to learn more about our roles and ratings structure.

Editing a User's Role

You can edit any user and update their roles at any given time by choosing the right permission level from the drop-down menu.

Changing a User's Password

You can reset their password as needed, all you have to do is click the CHANGE PASSWORD button.

Logging In As a Specific User

By going to the bottom of the user details card, you'll see a link that lets you log in as them. This is so you can see what they see and experience what they experience when using their account. This is especially helpful when troubleshooting technical issues.

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. 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 5.7 million digital subscriptions in 2020.

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.

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:

The Subscription Model Is Taking off and Competition Has Never Been Steeper

The post-pandemic user landscape is still ripe for subscription revenue

You can get a subscription for everything these days. Whether it’s a cheese-of-the-month club or annual access to read your favorite content, the subscription-based model has continued to gain steam in recent years. In fact, the market for digital subscriptions is valued at $650 billion according to a new report from Lineup, a subscription management solution.

The power of the subscription model has been growing since even before the COVID-19 crisis began, and isn’t showing any signs of slowing as we enter a post-pandemic landscape. According to What’s New in Publishing, Gannett reported a 46% year-over-year increase in digital subscriptions in November 2021, putting them at 1.5M total subscribers. Hearst grew its digital subscriptions by 50% in 2021.

But subscriptions aren’t just for big name publishers. Users in 2022 are ready to pay up for legacy names and new media companies alike, as long as it’s for an experience that’s beneficial to them, reliable, and free of the clutter that can come from third-party platforms. Speaking of platforms, even TikTok and Instagram have started to gauge their audiences’ temperature on subscription experiences. So, the competition has never been steeper for publishers looking to build a subscriber base. Unfortunately, launching a simple paywall may not be enough.
