How to Use 1Password to Protect Your Site

1Password is RebelMouse's preferred method to securely store and transfer login credentials. Fundamental to understanding 1Password is the concept of "vaults." RebelMouse will create a new vault for your company. In this vault, you will not only find the passwords we want you to have access to, but you'll also use your vault to add credentials you want to share with/transfer to RebelMouse. This way, anytime you need to share a password with us, you can add it to your company vault and vice versa.


To begin, you'll receive an email from your account manager inviting you into our 1Password system. You can ask for invitations for several users on your side if you wish. Follow the instructions provided by your account manager to set up your account. It's important to note that you should write down your master password in a secure location as this will be important to have for future logins.

How to Set up 1Password

You can use 1Password entirely in your browser if you wish. The directions will be the same. If you don't want to use your browser to access 1Password, here's how to download and install 1Password's app:

  1. Click on your name in the upper right-hand corner of your 1Password account.
  2. Select Get the Apps.
  3. Choose the appropriate download for your system.
  4. Install the downloaded file, and follow the instruction prompts to complete the setup process.

Adding Details and Passwords to 1Password

Click on [Your Company Vault] to access the system. This is where you'll see all of the project's relevant credentials stored. This is also where you'll add your own credentials if necessary.

To add a new entry, click the + button on the bottom (or top) of the screen.

A pop-up window will appear with many different options for the types of things you can store, including logins, passwords, and secure notes.

Typically, you will select Login. You can now enter the relevant information into 1Password. The most relevant will be username, password, website (URL of where you log in), and, if applicable, notes.

You can now view, add, edit, or delete credentials in your company vault. Please keep in mind that we only give temporary access to vaults during the time frame in which we need to share credentials with each other.

How to Give RebelMouse Access to Your Google Analytics Account

Sign in to your Google Analytics account. Click the gear icon in the bottom left-hand corner, and then make sure you're in the ADMIN tab. In the account, property, or view column (depending upon whether you want to add users at the account, property, or view level), click User Management.

In the list of users, click +, and then click Add users.

Next, enter the email address for the user's Google account. (RebelMouse will inform you of which email addresses need to be added.) Select Notify new users by email to send a message to the user(s) when you're done. Finally, select the permissions you want the user(s) to have and then click Add.

How to Give RebelMouse Access to Your Google Search Console Account

Owners have full control over properties in Google Search Console. They can add and remove other users, configure settings, view all data, and use all tools. If you want to give someone limited access, add them as a user instead.

How to Add an Owner

To add another user as an owner, or upgrade someone's status from user to owner, open your Webmaster Central page. Then choose a property, scroll down to the Verified owners section, and click Add an owner.

Next, add in the new owner's user information and click Continue. Finally, ask the new owner to add the property to their property list.

How to Add a New User

Choose a property in your Google Search Console account. Next, click Settings (gear icon) and then select Users and permissions. From there, click ADD USER and type in the email address of the user you want to add — RebelMouse will inform you of which email addresses need to be added — and select the permission the user should have:

  • Full: Has view rights to all data and can take some actions.
  • Restricted: Has simple view rights on most data.

Finally, click ADD. The property will be added to the new user's Google Search Console account automatically.

How to Give RebelMouse Access to Your Mailchimp Account

Follow these instructions to add a user to your Mailchimp account. The various permissions and what they can do are described on Mailchimp's "Invite A User" page. The available permissions are Viewer, Author, Manager, and Admin.

First, log in to Mailchimp. Click your name in the upper right-hand corner of the screen. Then, click Account. Next, click Settings, and then Users.

Next, click Invite a User.

Add in the email address of the person to be added to your account, and then choose their permission type. Finally, click Send Invite.

How to Use Variables to Set Colors Across Your Site

Why This Is Important

You can easily set colors for every element of your site on RebelMouse, including the color of your text, links, and headlines. Usually there's a set of 2–3 colors used across a site. But instead of hardcoding the color on every element, you can use variables to make it so that if a color needs to change, you can update it in one place instead of everywhere — making future maintenance easy.

Learn More About RebelMouse’s High-Performing Infrastructure

To ensure every site powered by RebelMouse is high performing, secure, and optimized for user experience, we only use the best and most reliable methods to host our infrastructure. Here's a detailed look at some of the services and security measures we use every day to secure maximum stability and security for each of our sites.

Click here to learn more about what makes RebelMouse secure, stable, redundant, and high performing.

Services

Stateless services, such as application services for front end and back end tasks, are deployed within an Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) into multiple availability zones using Amazon Auto Scaling groups. Every service deployment is automated and can be done without an operator. Auto Scaling groups eliminate the need for manual recovery procedures in the event of hardware-related incidents. Additionally, Auto Scaling groups for stateless services provide the ability to balance resources according to current load.

Stateless services include:

  • Front end and back end applications
  • Background workers
  • Dedicated services for paid content and statistics

All interactions with our internal services are done via Amazon Elastic Load Balancing (ELB). Load balancing allow us to control the flow of all incoming traffic and reroute it to the group of instances that are available as necessary, which covers any networking and hardware issues. Every load balancer controls the health of the listener instance by regularly performing health checks and removing failed instances from production environments.

Load balancing and Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instances provide monitoring services with resource consumption data. Stateful services such as MongoDB, Redis, and Memcached are deployed within a VPC into multiple availability zones using Auto Scaling groups. Every data service has backup, recovery, and automatic failover procedures. Backup and recovery procedures are integrated into Auto Scaling groups and tested regularly.

Services performance is monitored by internal and external tools:

  • Sentry is used to track errors.
  • New Relic is used for application performance monitoring.
  • Amazon CloudWatch is used to monitor performance extremes.
  • Monit, Nagios, and Cacti are used to monitor metrics per instance.

Security

Defense in Depth (DiD) standards are adhered to and applied at all levels:

  • Amazon Web Services (AWS), such as Identity and Access Management (IAM), and CloudTrail
  • VPC and subnets
  • Load balancers (security groups)
  • EC2 instances
  • Operating systems use permissions-based controls

Access Monitoring:

  • AWS CloudTrail monitors all activities in our production data centers and grants us the ability to perform audits

Data Protection:

  • Secured storage
  • Encrypted transition protocols
If you have any questions about RebelMouse's technical infrastructure, email support@rebelmouse.com.

When to Use the Post Content Element’s Lead Media Properties

RebelMouse's Layout & Design tool makes designing your site easy and intuitive. But there are certain design factors you need to take into account when building out your site.

When creating a post page (i.e., the landing page for any article that a user is directed or navigates to), styling it is slightly different from other pages because it requires you to use the Lead Media property of a Post Content element. Within the context of our Layout & Design tool, "Lead Media" is defined as the main post tied to a post page's URL, which includes all of its images, media, and text.

By contrast, the Posts element displays all other articles (or posts) that aren't the main post you land on. These are the subsequent posts on a page that appear afterward as you scroll — such as in an infinite scroll setup, for example.

Cross-Site Shareable Elements on RebelMouse

We now have a new feature that will be very helpful for clients that have multiple sites and/or a site network powered by RebelMouse: Cross-Site Shareable Elements. This new feature makes styling work much easier since users are able to update several site layouts at once by editing a single element. This should also prevent duplicating code in similar site layouts, as well as saving users some coding time.
