Hi there,

 

we are redesigning our website and blog. What's the best workflow to publish old blog posts with new templates?

What happens if I change the blog templates with live blog posts?

 

Thanks,

Nik

Hi @Nik

 

Currently HubSpot doesn't have any blog staging tools (I think something is in the pipeline) so updating the design of an  existing blog is a bit of a game. 

 

The best way currently is something like:

  • Create a test blog and clone a few posts acorss to it
  • Hide the blog and posts from Google
  • Develop and test the new templates
  • When ready, apply the new templates to the main blog
  • Fix any formatting issues on live posts
  • Take down the test blog

Hope that helps.
