    Displaying your blog posts on your Homepage or About Us page is a crucial way of getting your content to your readers. 

    HubSpot offers a Blog Feed module but, in order to style it, you need access to a developer. The Blog Feed module is a highly customisable custom module for HubSpot that can be dropped into any template. You can update the number of posts, elements you would like to display and styling in minutes with absolutely no code.

    Set Featured Blog Posts on the HubSpot Blog Listings Page

    13 Aug, 2018

    Setting one or more featured posts on your blog listings page allows you to draw your reader's attention to posts that you want to highlight.

    On HubSpot, you can achieve this using post topics or tags and HubL. Your blog listings template will include a HubL expression that says "If the blog post has the featured tag, make it a featured post".

    You will need to get your hands dirty with some code to do this so, if you're uncertain, check in with your developer or enlist the help of a HubSpot Freelance Developer.
