How to use the content editor

Last Updated: December 09, 2013

The content editor allows you to create, edit, store, and display your content the way you want to. The HubSpot content editor is designed to be easy to use, yet flexible and powerful enough to offer an endless set of possibilities to you as you create and edit your site.

The content editor is composed of four different tabs:

The Content Tab

The Content tab is where you add all of the content that goes into the finished page or email. The content editor will display different types of fields depending on the type of content you are working on -- whether it's a website page, landing page, blog post, or email --  and the type of content modules you've included in your template layout.

The Content Tab

The Options Tab

The Options tab is where you can set the options that are specific to the type of content you are creating. If you're working on a website page, you'll be able to edit things like your page's meta description, which domain the page is published on, and which campaign it's attached to. For a blog post, you can set information about the author and the topic of the post. For an email, you can edit the plain text version of the email and create a web version of the email.

The Options Tab

The Style Tab

The Style tab is where you can modify the style of your different content modules to match your brand's styling.

The Style Tab

The Publishing Tab

The Publishing tab (also known as the Sending tab in the Email tool) is where you can choose to publish your content immediately or schedule it to be published at a later date and time. The Sending tab replaces the Publishing tab for emails and controls when the email sends and whom the email is sent to.

Desktop, Tablet and Mobile Preview

You can toggle back and forth between a preview of your content on a desktop, tablet and mobile device. You might find that you need to tweak your layout or content to achieve the desired look across platforms.
