HubSpot CMS templates: Everything you need to know
Have you started building your site in HubSpot's CMS? Or are you planning to?
In both cases, HubSpot CMS templates are an essential part of your site.
The theme, but certainly also your templates, play a crucial role in the style and construction of your website.
In this article, you will first discover what the difference are between themes and templates. Then you will learn how to select the right HubSpot templates for your site.
What is the difference between HubSpot CMS themes and templates?
Have you noticed that the terms "themes" and "templates" are often used interchangeably? Let's zoom in below and clarify the difference between the two terms once and for all.
A website theme is the overall style you choose. You set your theme once and all your other pages will be displayed in this form as a result.
Step 1. Choose one of the HubSpot themes. You can do this through the following website: https://www.hubspot.com/products/cms/website-themes-templates.
Step 2. Create your account. Then you come to the page indicated on the left. Here you can choose from a variety of themes.
Step 3. Install the theme on your site.
Now you have installed the theme on your website and you can continue building your website. This is where HubSpot templates come into play.
How to choose the perfect template for your site?
As shown in the heading above, it is not only important to choose the right template. The theme of your website should be chosen first! Also, the theme you select determines what options you have in terms of CMS templates.
In the first theme from this article, you only had 7 templates at your disposal. In the "academia" theme (see image), you can choose from 15 (!) different templates. This nicely shows how much difference there is between the different themes.
So selecting the right template depends entirely on the theme you choose. Some tips to choose the right theme (and thus the corresponding templates):
- Carefully map out your wishes regarding your website.
- Choose a theme with a wide choice of templates (this way you avoid having to create templates manually!).
- Make a well-considered choice for your theme.
- Match your theme and templates with what you want to offer as an organization. A school will choose a different theme than a hairdresser, for example.
