Learn how to use a flexible system to control what displays on your site and where through configuration. Learn how to configure per-page or per-section layouts; or set up custom layouts for anonymous or selected roles; and control where content is displayed.
Panels is a popular Drupal module used to create individual pages with complex layouts of your content (3 column vs 2 column layout, with or without a top header or footer, etc). We’ll show you how to use Panels to take over existing pages such as the node creation page, and cover how to use Panels in conjunction with Views to create context-specific displays of your data. We'll explain how to embed views within Panels, create custom block sections, create custom node displays, and create custom administration pages.
