WE'VE GOT THE ANSWERS
Solid B2B Theme Documentation
Feeling lost? We've got you covered. Find out below everything you need to know about our theme's features, functionalities and how you can customize it to make your web pages really look as your own.
After your purchase, HubSpot will have migrated over the complete theme folder to your portal.
You will be able to start using the theme right away, but we recommend you create a child theme first. Basically, a child theme gives you the best of both worlds: customizability and theme updates.
By creating a child theme, you'll be able to:
- Customize a theme's source codes without missing out on future theme updates
- Set up a separate child theme (and branding) for different domains. Each domain now can have its own logo, menu, colors, header, footer, and everything else.
You can find your theme folder in the following path in Marketing > Design Tools > Files and Templates > Design Manager: /@marketplace/Stoica_Digital/Solid B2B Theme.
Here is a quick demonstration on how to create the child theme.
Customize your child theme
Go to the Design Manager section and click on the newly created child theme folder. At this point, it should look like this:
This is how the parent folder looks like when you download it:
In order to start customizing your child theme, follow these steps:1. Create a clone of the parent theme folder - right click on the Solid B2B Theme folder and select Clone theme. Rename the folder to something distinct (it can be deleted afterwards) - e.g. Solid B2B Theme_TRANSFER_ONLY
2. In order to customize some specific modules/templates you need to recreate the exact same path in the child folder as in the parent folder.
Let say you want to edit the Hero banner module and it has this path in the parent folder: /Solid B2B Theme/modules/Hero Banner.module
- Create a new folder named ‘modules’ in the child theme folder
- Go to the Solid B2B Theme_TRANSFER_ONLY folder, look up the Hero Banner module > right click > Move module > select the folder in the child theme (see example here)
Here’s an article from HubSpot on how to handle child themes:
Templates & modules
All included templates are 100% ready-to-use. You can create new pages with any of the pre-built modules to experience all the features.
The copy of Solid B2B Theme you have in your portal is fully yours, but there are some terms and conditions that govern what you can and can't do.
Each license (purchase) is valid only in the portal it's purchased from. If you need to use the theme on multiple portals, you'll need to purchase or download the theme from each portal.
Things you can do
- You are licensed to use the theme on all domains within the portal it's purchased/downloaded from.
- Create a child theme (extending the original theme's folder) to customize its source files.
- Use the theme as your website foundation and develop new elements/features/modules extending the theme.
Things you can't do
- Migrate/Clone theme into a different HubSpot portal.
- HubSpot disables the option/feature to migrate purchased themes to another portal.
- You can't redistribute or resell our themes in any form.
How to edit your theme settings
In your HubSpot account, go to Settings > Website > Themes > select the Solid B2B Theme and start editing.
While editing one of your website pages, in the left sidebar editor, go to Design, then select Edit Theme Settings.
Any changes you make to the theme settings will apply automatically to all existing modules & page templates. Use the reset button if you want to undo any of them.
You also have the ‘Custom Style’ option for each module, if the Theme Settings don’t fully apply to your situation. The ‘Custom Style’ will override the Theme Settings for that specific module.
Important: If you have the ‘Custom Style’ option active on the module of a page you are previewing your theme settings on, you will not be able to see the changes.
Tip: We recommend testing your theme settings on a page created using the Modules Overview template. This way, you’ll have a better general idea of how all the modules will look like. If not all modules look great, don’t worry, you can use the ‘Custom style’ option you have available at page edit level.
Theme settings options
In the theme settings, you will find options to customise:
- Global colors
- Global fonts
- Website header
- Website Footer
- System pages
Important: The first time you access the Theme settings make sure to hit the Apply Changes button even if you didn't make any changes, so the theme will load all of its resources.
1. Global Colors
Here you can set your 3 main colors of your website. About 90% of the elements will inherit these colors.
2. Global Fonts
This is where you set the Primary and Secondary font families and their colors. These changes will apply to all text fields (except for the header, footer and buttons). The settings will be partially* inherited by the body text, h1-h6 and link style fields you have in the Text tab below.
As mentioned above, the global fonts settings will be inherited by the body text, h1-h6 and link style fields you have in this section. Font families will apply to all, but the font color will apply partially, just because we wanted to avoid situations where you have body text on a similar colored background.
TIP 1: Use a color for the body text that will work on light backgrounds, then edit the modules that require customization using the ‘Custom style’ settings when editing each page.
TIP 2: Use a size for the body text that works well for most modules. For the hero banners, for example, you can use the ‘Custom style’ option if you need a larger font size.
Here you can set the style of the buttons. You basically have 4 button styles:
All button types have these settings: font style (type, size, color), hover settings, border radius, the option to remove the shadow* and the size & color of the icon. The icons will be added from the page editor, within each module with buttons.
The Outlined buttons, also have the extra settings for border: style, color & width.
Note 1: It’s better if you preview these settings on a page with a module that has all 4 types of buttons, so you can see how they fit together.
Note 2: The button shadow can also be deactivated from each module, at page edit level.
Note 3: The style of the form buttons can be changed from Theme Settings > Forms.
The form will inherit most of the global colors and fonts, but if you want any particular changes, here you can edit:
- Form styling (background color, border style, color, radius, spacing)
- Font style for Title, labels, help text, inputs, legal consent
- Inputs box border style and background color
- Submit button style
Note: In order to preview these changes you need to create first a page that contains one of your forms.
This is where you set the appearance of your tables. You can change: fonts, colors, border styles, fill colors, cell spacings.
7. Website header
Here you can customize the style of your header.
Info: In order to edit the items in your menu, go to Settings > Website > Navigation > select the menu you want to edit or create a new menu.

- Logo + Menu + CTA - this header layout consists of the logo + chosen menu + CTA (the last item is set as CTA - adds secondary button styling). If you don’t want the last item to look like a button, you have the option to turn the last item into a regular menu link.
→ Fixed header
- If this is active, the header will remain fixed at the top while scrolling along the page
- If this is active, there will also appear an additional setting for the header's background color when sticky
→ Header background color
→ Scrolled Header background color - this works if you are using the fixed header option
→ Hamburger Menu responsive breakpoint - here you can select the minimum viewport width the hamburger menu will appear.
- First level items

→ Rounded Corners
- sets the search input border radius

- Input shadow on top - if checked, a box shadow will be added on the search input while the header is on top (not scrolled)
- Input shadow on scroll - if checked, a box shadow will be added on the search input when user scrolls and the header becomes fixed
8. Website footer
Here you can customize the style of your footer. You will find separate settings for:
- Background color
- Padding (top & bottom)
- Social icons colors
→ Images - here you can customize the border of your images (if you want any, and the radius of the corners). You can also choose if you want to drop any shadows on your images
→ Shadow - this shadow applies to images (if selected) and some of the boxed elements (e.g. pricing cards)
10. System pages
System templates are used for certain types of pages generated automatically by HubSpot. In the theme settings you can customize the style of each of them, but if you need to make any content changes you have to edit the templates. Make sure to preview your changes on the System pages templates: https://share.vidyard.com/watch/sVELVNsJbi6RztKw1aiHmW
This is what each system page represents:
Error page: 404 and 500 error pages to let your users know that they have reached a page that does not exist or a technical issue has occurred.
Password prompt page: a password prompt page for any content you've locked with a password.
Subscription page: the subscription preferences page where your email recipients can manage the email types they are subscribed to and unsubscribe from all emails. Update this template to engage with your contacts during the subscription process (e.g., explain how your contacts can opt back into particular email types so they can resubscribe if they change their mind).
Backup unsubscribe page: a page that will appear for email recipients who are trying to unsubscribe, if HubSpot is unable to determine their email address.
Subscriptions update page: the confirmation page that appears when an email recipient updates their subscription preferences.
Search results page: the page that displays search results when visitors use the site search.
