How To Setup A Global Header Or Footer For Your Template

Global modules are composed of either a group of content modules or a single content module that makes up an essential element of your website pages. This is content that you want to create once and then add across various locations on your site. When edited, changes to a global module or group will be updated across every site page that uses the global content in its template.   

When you purchase a template off the HubSpot Marketplace, your new template's header and footer will not be set up as global groups. Follow the instructions below to learn how to set these up.
