In order to have a comments section on your blog, the blog template must contain a Blog Comments module.

  • In your HubSpot Marketing BasicProfessional, or Enterprise account, navigate to Content > Content Settings.
  • In the left sidebar menu, navigate to Marketing Blog.
  • Click the Templates tab, then check the name of the blog template in the Current template field.

  • Next, navigate to Content > Design Manager to locate the blog template. It should be within a subfolder under Templates > Custom > Blog

  • If your template does not contain a Blog Comments module, add the module by clicking the arrow located on the left of the page, then locating and dragging the Blog Comments module into the template. Click Publish changes at the top right to save your changes to the template.
