Blog Templates in HTML and Custom Modules

Hey all... I was curious if the following is possible. 


I want to create a custom "Accordion" module that queries a particular table within HubDB (based on a custom field variable in the module) and creates an accordion with said data. I am able to do this easily enough, however with one issue. 


Is there any way I can give this to my marketing team to include WITHIN a blog post's content, while also passing it a field variable telling it which HubDB table to query?


Currently - the only way I can figure is simply adding it to the "Post Page Template" - but this isnt exactly what I want. I want the ability to add this module IN THE ACTUAL CONTENT of the blog post, not in a section before or after it. Is this possible?

Blog Templates in HTML and Custom Modules

Hi @shullski 

if you have created a custom accordion module you'll find this part on the very bottom of the right sidebar(inside the module).

Simply copy the whole snippet, and add it inside the blog post where you want/need it. 

Sometimes you'll need to save and reopen the post, so keep this in mind 🙂

Beside this I've noticed that if you insert the (same) module multiple times you'll get the same content inside of them. This means: if you need multiple accordions inside a single blog post you'll need to clone/duplicate the module, rename it(accordion-module-1, accordion-module-2...) and paste their unique snippets.
