To choose the template layouts for blog articles and listing pages, you can use the blog template options. If you need to customize your blog template, you can create or modify your template in your design manager. Once you're ready to apply your template or templates to your blog, you will need to apply those templates in content settings.

Instructions

Follow the instructions below to your blog template and layout settings.

Navigate to blog settings

In your HubSpot Marketing Basic, Professional, or Enterprise account, navigate to Content > Content Settings. In the left sidebar menu, navigate to MarketingBlog.

Navigate to Content Settings

Choose the blog you want to update

If you have multiple blogs, select the blog you wish to edit the template for from the Select a blog to modify dropdown menu at the top of the Blog settings.

Customize blog template settings

Click the Templates tab to update your blog template settings.

Choose your template(s) and listing page options

  1. Use the Current template dropdown menu to select the blog template of your choice. Unchecking Use same template for blog listing pages adds a second dropdown menu to select a distinct template for listing pages.

  2. Set the number of posts that you would like to display on each page of your listing views. The default setting is 10 posts per listing page.

  3. This option toggles whether or not to show complete or abbreviated posts in the listing summary. With summaries enabled, HubSpot will show the first paragraph of content unless a read more separator is inserted into the post.
  4. With this option enabled, all images in each post are hidden in the listing view, with the exception of that post's featured image. Rendering a single featured image for each post helps create a consistent look for your post listing.

Be sure to click Save at the bottom to save any changes.

Customize HTML

Enter any custom HTML into the Header HTML for Blog Listing Pages text field. If the Use same footer HTML for blog posts box is checked, the HTML you've added to the Footer HTML for Blog Listing Pages field will apply to your individual blog posts as well.

If you'd like to add different custom HTML to your blog posts, uncheck the box and add your HTML to the Footer HTML for Blog Posts field. 

Once you've added your code, click Save.

Attach stylesheets

You can attach stylesheets to a particular blog. This stylesheet will be loaded in addition to your other global stylesheets. You can also attach stylesheets directly to your template.
