Is it possible to make a drag and drop section reusable?

In the example image above I have created a section by dragging an image and a rich text field on it. Is it possible to make this reusable by "saving" it somehow? So I wouldn't have to drag and drop everything again when I need to create a similar section on another page.

This is a very simplistic example, it's quick to drag and drop 2 modules, but let's say I have 6-10 modules in a section – that will take way longer to implement on multiple pages. This is where a saving option would get handy.

Hi @Jere,

 

At this stage, I believe that this is unfortunately only in the drag and drop email editor, not for landing page templates. (But maybe we'll get this sometime soon?)

Hi @Jere!

 

There's a small drop down for the Section. What options exist there?

You'd be looking to create a Section like this and then save it as a Module. A Module would become an entity in your Design Manager that you could store and use again and again. If the option is not in that drop down, check out this article for more information on creating modules: Create and edit modules

Hey @Crystal_Hopper, these options exist there:

So you're talking about developing a custom module that must be developed with code on Design Manager, correct? My question here is that can a section built with the drag and drop functionality be "saved" by a marketing person that does not know any HTML / CSS, and can they then repeat the section on another page by using the saved section.

Hi @Jere,

 

HubSpot recently introduced Saved sections in the drag and drop email editor. They are still a bit limited in functionality because they only let you save on block of layout (1 column, 2 columns etc). If you want so save multiple blocks of layout, they would be separate saved sections.

If you want more options, you would indeed have to create and edit custom coded modules in the design manager tool.

This is exactly what I was looking for, @karstenkoehler! But is this available for the website builder, or just for emails? I don't see any saved sections option on the drag and drop builder on website pages.

Hi @Jere ,

Yes, you can reuse sections, but make sure the module has its unique ID because otherwise it will affect other templates as well. 

Just drag and drop, and visit the edit section. Now click on the Add tab and add the find module. 

There you can edit the content.

Make sure you add the below code in each module in the stating and all the content that you want to save under this tag- 

<div class="{{name}}"></div>


Hope this helps!

Hey @webdew, I feel like you understood this question thread wrong. Or am I misunderstanding your answer? My question is about saving drag and drop made sections and reusing them on other pages, without touching any code (so that content editors can do this themselves).

Hi @Jere ,

According to your question, currently, there is no option to save DND section in editor for web pages and landing pages.
As per my suggestion, you can create separate custom module as per your needs and you can drag and drop that module in your web page any time.
You can refer this resource to create module or we can also help you with the same.

You can also visit hubspot marketplace to chexck outr some of the modules created by us.
