Drag and Drop Blog Content

Dear Hubspot community,

 

I found this "product update" post about Hubspots upcoming features:
https://www.hubspot.com/product-updates/two-updates-to-give-marketers-more-control-over-content-crea...

 

Does this mean blog editors will be able to drag and drop modules into the post_body or a drag and drop area in a blog post?

Because thats what my customer would need.

 

I would just like to verify if that is what it means.

 

Thanks!

Hi @rdecker ,

 

I undertood that we will have the common modules how (image, gallery, form, rich text and other...) to insert in page more easily. I speak of "easier way", because today it is possible to assemble 1 template in HubSpot that allows you to do this.

 

We have the common modules and we can also create our own module library. Jeff teaches us how to do it in the HubSpot course. Follow the link if you are interested: https://academy.hubspot.com/courses/cms-for-developers

 

In Design Manager, you can edit an template and use flexible columns to enable the user to be able to play or remove modules from that session when editing content.

 

So I understand that this update will facilitate this work, which we can already create. Example if for edit the Global Content, that this post informed that it will be possible to edit without being through Design Manager.

 

Did this post help solve your problem? If so, please mark it as a solution.

Best regards!

Thanks for your infos Daniel,

 

what you describe seems to be only possible on "website pages" and "landing pages".
Flexible columns or drag and drop areas (which do seem to work in website pages and landingpages) are not available in blog post templates yet.


If you know that this is possible in "blog posts", can you please provide a more specific link to this information?

Everything I found and tried until now suggests that it is currently not possible in blog templates.

Hi @rdecker 

 

You are correct that the flexible column does not work on the blog template.

 

Just a detail: it is possible to customize a blog by creating modules and inserting them in Design Manager but you really can't have drag and drop today to be edited post by post individually. This can really be a big news if it comes.

 

Best! 🙂

Please, Please, Please add the drag and drop functionality to the blog_post page!! It's available on website pages and landing pages and is amazing! It's a big miss that this wasn't incorporated into the new themes from the beginning. 
The ability to create dynamic blog pages would be amazing!
