Do you currently have a HubSpot site or blog, and you want to rebrand? Or is this a new site?
If you are rebranding, you will need to make updates without impacting your current site. Read guide
If this is a new site, you can move on to step 2.
Are you a developer and planning on customizing the theme code? Create a child theme
Are you new to using HubSpot themes? If so, I highly recommend reviewing these educational resources before going further, customizing the theme.
Create a new blog and use the templates from the theme. Read guide
Plan your site architecture. How should your top navigation menu look? What about the footer navigation? Once you have this ready, update your default or create a new navigation menu. Read guide.
Once you have this ready, begin building your pages using the templates included in the theme.
You can also use the blank template to build a custom layout. Here is a video showing how to add reusable sections.
Go to the theme settings panel and click on the header to open the global partial editor screen. Select your new menu from the dropdown list: update colors and fonts and anything else you would like to update to the theme.
This theme is built for a blog that uses two tags (portfolio, article) to filter the content. Create these two tags for your blog.
Now add your first portfolio project by creating a blog post and set the tag to “portfolio”.
You should now see the module called “portfolio images”. Click “+ Add” to add a portfolio image
For a blog post just use the tag “article” and it will be filtered properly on the main site index.
