HubSpot's layout editor lets you drag and drop editable areas (known as 'modules') to create templates that serve as the foundation for your pages, emails, and blogs. While you can code HTML templates from scratch, using drag and drop templates will save you time and provide content creators with much greater flexibility when structuring their content.

Please note: if the HubSpot Technical Services team has set up your templates, you'll already have custom templates to accommodate the design requirements of your site. You can learn how to edit your existing templates here.
