On this episode of 'Inbound & Down,' co-hosts Jon Sasala and Danielle Esposito are joined by the Morey Publishing designers to discuss custom modules. Learn what they are, why they're a valuable HubSpot tool, and how the Morey team has used them.
"Custom Modules are reusable modules that can be added to HubSpot drag-and-drop templates and customized with simple fields at the page level."
Morey Publishing Senior Web Designer Jeff Main breaks it down a bit more, describing custom modules as "snippets that a developer can create using the HubL (pronounced Hubble) code, HubSpot's programming language, which allows the user to make a creative layout or page changes without ever having to use code."
Custom modules can be used for anything from custom forms to call-to-actions, he adds.
Why are custom modules so amazing? They allow for a ton of flexibility, which enables those who don't understand how to code to easily customize and make changes. Since they're reusable, they serve as a quick and easy way to turn a repetitive process into a systematic one. For example, actions developers would normally have to code out, such as placing a div on a blog post, can be automated via a custom module.
KEY TAKEAWAY FROM THIS EPISODE:
