Module and Theme Field Types

Last updated:

Add fields to modules and themes to allow content creators to control various aspects of a page within the page editor. Below, learn about all of the fields available for modules and themes. For more information about implementing module and theme fields, including field groups and repeating fields, view the module and theme fields overview.

Properties used by all fields

Fields all have a few properties in common, these properties control the variable names you use to reference their values and their appearance for content creators.

// Boolean field { "name" : "is_teaser_img", "label" : "Enable Teaser Image", "required" : false, "locked" : false, "type" : "boolean", "inline_help_text" : "Shows Teaser image when toggled on", "help_text" : "Teaser images are used to help provide visual context to the post.", "default" : false }
Properties used by all fields
ParameterTypeDescription Default
help_text
String

Text that will appear in the editor via tooltip to assist the content creator.

Best used for information that is supplementary but not required to use the field.

none
id
String

Unique id for a field. This is generated by HubSpot. When building locally you do not need to specify this id.

inline_help_text
String

Help text that will be shown inline below the label of the field (limit 300 chars). 

Best used for information required to use the field.

null
label
String

The text the content creator sees describing the field. May contain spaces.

Rich text field, Date field, etc.
locked
Boolean

Determines if the field is editable in the content editor. If "true", the field will not appear in the content editor.

false
name
String

The variable name you will use to refer to this field's values, and is what the value of the field is stored against. Cannot contain spaces or special characters.

richtext_field, date_field, etc.
required
Boolean

Determines if the field can be left blank in the editor. If true, content will not be allowed to publish without filling out this field.

false
type
String

The type of field see field types below for documentation on all field types.

visibility
Array

Determines the display conditions for a field.

display_width
String

Allows for side by side module fields in content editors, rather than full-width fields, when set to "half_width". The field will appear side by side with the next field in the fields.json file, as long as that field is also set to "half_width".

Do not use inline_help_text and help_text interchangeably. 

Instead ask yourself "Is this information necessary for a user to complete a task?".

  • If the answer is yes, the information should be on the screen, and inline_help_text is best.
  • If no, then it's okay to put in a tooltip using help_text.

Keeping consistent to this helps users quickly understand the interface you provide them.

Alignment

This field provides content creators a way to position an element within a container. This should not be used for text alignment as there is a field type specifically for that.

Alignment fields are supported in modules.
Alignment fields can only be used as style fields.

Alignment field
// alignment field { "name": "img_position", "label": "Position Image", "help_text":"Position the image within it's container.", "required": false, "type": "alignment", "default": { "horizontal_align": "CENTER", "vertical_align": "TOP", } }
Blog field
ParameterTypeDescription Default
default
Object

Object containing horizontal_align and vertical_align.

alignment_direction
String

Determines if only horizontal, only vertical, or both alignment controls should be shown. Can be:

  • HORIZONTAL
  • VERTICAL
  • BOTH
BOTH

Background Image

This field provides a background image field which has subfields for background position and background size. Background image fields have a .css property that returns CSS based on the field's value. Learn more about the generated CSS property.

Background Image fields are supported in modules.
Background Image fields can only be used as style fields.

Background image field
// background image field { "name": "bg_image", "label": "Background image", "required": false, "type": "backgroundimage", "default": { "src": "https://example.com/img.png", "background_position": "MIDDLE_CENTER", "background_size": "cover" } }
Blog field
ParameterTypeDescription Default
default
Object

Object containing the image src, background position and background size.

null

Blog

This field provides a way for content editors to select a blog, providing you, the developer the blog's id. This is useful for situations like pulling teaser information for featured blogs in modules. You can use the blog id in blog-related HubL functions to get information like blog authors, recent blog posts, recent blog posts with a specific tag, and more.

Blog fields are supported in modules.

Screenshot of Blog field
// blog field { "name" : "blog", "label" : "Blog", "required" : false, "locked" : false, "type" : "blog", "default" : 1234567890 }
Blog field
ParameterTypeDescription Default
default
"default" / blog id

Specifies which blog is selected by default. This parameter accepts arguments of either 'default' or a blog ID (available in the URL of the Blog dashboard).

null

Boolean

This field provides a way for content editors to enable/disable functionality. Booleans can only be true or false. Often it makes sense to make groups or fields conditional based on boolean fields. If you think you might need to provide more than two states down the road, a Choice field may be a better option as you can grow into that with less effort should needs change later.

Boolean fields are supported in both themes and modules.
Boolean fields can be used as style fields.

Screenshot of Boolean field
// Boolean field { "name" : "is_teaser_img", "label" : "Enable Teaser Image", "required" : false, "locked" : false, "type" : "boolean", "display":"checkbox", "inline_help_text" : "Shows Teaser image when toggled on", "help_text" : "Teaser images are used to help provide visual context to the post.", "default" : false }
Blog field
ParameterTypeDescription Default
default
Boolean

Set's whether the default state of this field is true or false.

false
display
String

Choose the visual display style for the field. Can appear as either a toggle or a checkbox.

checkbox

Maintain consistency when using toggle or checkbox. If you're not careful you can create a confusing UI for content creators.

A toggle switch can make sense when the value of the field enables/disables other fields conditionally being shown. Another time a toggle may be useful is when the field represents a major design change for the module. Checkboxes make sense for smaller changes that may not have as drastic of an effect on the module's display, such as hiding or showing individual small elements.

Border

This field provides content creators a user interface for creating a border around an element. Border fields have a .css property that returns CSS based on the field's value. Learn more about the generated CSS property.

Border fields are supported in modules.
Border fields can only be used as style fields.

Screenshot of border module field in page editor
// Border field { "id" : "styles.border", "name" : "border", "label" : "border", "required" : false, "locked" : false, "allow_custom_border_sides" : false, "type" : "border", "default" : { "top": { "width": { "value": 1, "units": "px" }, "opacity": 100, "style": "solid", "color": "#ffffff" }, "bottom": { "width": { "value": 1, "units": "px" }, "opacity": 100, "style": "solid", "color": "#ffffff" }, "left": null, "right": null } }

default
Boolean

object with keys for border radius, top, bottom, left, and right sides.

{}

Choice

Choice fields allow a content creator to select one or more items from a list of options, either within a dropdown menu, radio select, or checkboxes.

The options for a choice field can have separate labels for their values. After a module's been used in a page, the option labels can be modified without impacting sites, since the value is still the same. Changing the value, however, and any modules that previously had that value will become disassociated.

Choice fields are supported in both themes and modules. Choice fields can be used as style fields.

choice-field-dropdown
// Choice field { "name" : "img_position", "label" : "Image Position", "required" : false, "locked" : false, "multiple":"true", "display" : "select", "choices" : [ [ "img--left", "Image Left - Text Right" ], [ "img--right", "Text Left - Image Right" ] ], "type" : "choice", "default" : "img--left" }

Image

Image fields provide an easy interface for content creators to add images to a module or theme. Image fields provide a file picker interface that lists images from the File Manager. Since images can be used and displayed in different ways, developers can limit the sizing options available to the content creator in the UI as well as allow for lazy-loading of images.

Image Field

Image fields are supported in modules.
Images can be used as style fields
You should only use Image fields as style fields, if the image will be purely presentational, not convey meaning and not a background image. This is to follow best practices for accessibility.

true
show_loading
Boolean

Determines if the controls for choosing to lazy load the image are shown in the page editor.

false

Link fields provide an easy interface for content creators to provide links to URLs and email addresses. For external links, content creators choose "external". For email links "email address". Finally for content hosted on the HubSpot CMS they can use "content" which shows a list of all pages and blog posts in the account, file showing file assets, and blog, showing all of the blog listings in the account. Link fields are very similar to URL fields except for the key difference that they provide a UI for "open in new window" and "tell search engines not to follow". If you do not want content creators to have that control use the URL field.

Link fields are supported in modules.

link field
// Link field { "name" : "link", "label" : "Link", "required" : false, "locked" : false, "supported_types" : [ "EXTERNAL", "CONTENT", "FILE", "EMAIL_ADDRESS", "BLOG" ], "type" : "link", "show_advanced_rel_options" : false, "default" : { "url" : { "content_id" : null, "type" : "EXTERNAL", "href" : "" }, "open_in_new_tab" : false, "no_follow" : false, "sponsored" : false, "user_generated_content" : false } }

Menu fields provide an easy interface for content creators to create, edit and select a navigation menu that is re-usable on other pages. This field is great for use in menus that are used across multiple pages like main navigation and footer navigation and other global content.  Use this field in tandem with the menu tag or menu() function, to render a menu inside of your module.

For menus that don't make sense to re-use on other pages, like a table of contents menu, use the simple menu field.

Menu fields are supported in modules.

Page fields provide an interface for content creators to select site pages and landing pages.

Simple menu

Simple menu fields provide an easy interface for content creators to create a navigation menu that is not re-usable on other pages. For menus that should be reusable, use the menu field. A time you may want this is for a table of contents menu that links to headings on very long pages, or a list of links to content that only makes sense to have on the current page.

Simple menu fields are supported in modules.

Simple menu field
// Simple menu field { "name" : "toc_menu", "label" : "Table of Contents", "required" : false, "locked" : false, "type" : "simplemenu", "default" : [ { "isPublished" : false, "pageLinkId" : null, "pageLinkName" : null, "isDeleted" : null, "categoryId" : null, "subCategory" : null, "contentType" : null, "state" : null, "linkLabel" : "Why is product marketing important?", "linkUrl" : null, "linkParams" : null, "linkTarget" : null, "type" : "NO_LINK", "children" : [ { "isPublished" : false, "pageLinkId" : null, "pageLinkName" : null, "isDeleted" : null, "categoryId" : null, "subCategory" : null, "contentType" : null, "state" : null, "linkLabel" : "Product Marketing Responsibilities", "linkUrl" : "#product-marketing-responsibilities", "linkParams" : null, "linkTarget" : null, "type" : "URL_LINK", "children" : [ ] }, { "isPublished" : false, "pageLinkId" : null, "pageLinkName" : null, "isDeleted" : null, "categoryId" : null, "subCategory" : null, "contentType" : null, "state" : null, "linkLabel" : "1.

  • The units property supports the following unit types: %, ch, em, ex, in, lh, pc, pt, px, Q, rem, vh, vmax, vmin, and vw.
  • When a content creator edits all padding together, HubSpot will use the highest min value and the lowest max value. In addition, only the units shared by all sides will be available to the content creator.

Tag

Tag fields provide  a blog tag picker for content creators. This tag picker returns a blog tag id which can then be used in blog tag related functions such as Blog Tag URL and Blog Recent Tag Posts.

Tag fields are supported in modules.

Text

Text fields provide content creators a simple text editing experience with no rich text functionality. Text fields initially show as a single line, but can actually expand to be textareas, supporting multiple lines. Use these when you do not want content creators to have control over formatting. If you do want to provide formatting controls use rich text fields.

Text fields are supported in modules.

// Text field { "name" : "product_name", "label" : "Product Name", "required" : false, "locked" : false, "validation_regex" : "", "allow_new_line" : false, "show_emoji_picker" : false, "type" : "text", "default" : "" }

URL

URL fields provide a similar experience to link fields. Providing a UI for content creators to add links. URL fields, however, do not show a UI for open in a new window, nor tell search engines not to follow. Use this field when you as a developer want to dictate the values for that. If you want the user to have control, use link fields instead.

URL fields are supported in modules.

URL field
// URL field { "name" : "url", "label" : "URL", "required" : false, "locked" : false, "supported_types" : [ "EXTERNAL", "CONTENT", "FILE", "EMAIL_ADDRESS", "BLOG" ], "type" : "url", "default" : { "content_id" : null, "href" : "http://example.com", "type" : "EXTERNAL" } }
