When creating a new blog post you will likely want to enter a unique title for that blog post. But what if the area that you normally would type in the blog post title is not available? The culprit is likely that your blog post html template is missing the hubL token: {{ }}

A default HubSpot blog template will already contain this hubL token, but if you are customizing the design and removed this token without realizing its purpose, you may want to reconsider adding it back in.

  • In your HubSpot Marketing account, navigate to Content > Blog.
  • From the left side menu, click More tools > Manage blog template.
  • Locate the Blog Content module > click Edit Post Template.
  • Look for the lines of code likely toward the very top of your blog post template html which should resemble something like this, but with some additional code here and there:

    <div class="blog-section">
    <div class="blog-post-wrapper cell-wrapper">
    <div class="section post-header">
    <h1>{{ }}</h1>

If your blog post html template code is missing {{ }} and you are not sure where to place it in, you may want to contact your designer for their assistance on the best location to place it in the code to accommodate your custom design.

Or, you could create a brand new blog template for the sake of seeing what a default template looks like for reference. Check out this article to see how.
