Blocks are Dead! Long Live Panels

They were a great idea at some point, but the block system in Drupal falls short as a layout system in most cases. That’s where Panels puts a smile back on that little Druplicon!

Come to this session to learn how Panels 3:

  • Gives you total control over your layouts
  • Replaces and surpasses Blocks by giving them context
  • Works with other modules to make them more powerful
  • Allows for editable dashboards
  • Lets you do things with Drupal you never thought possible without a heap of PHP/JS

In CTools we trust!



After all the sites I’ve built in Drupal, I’ve still never tried Panels. I’m interested to learn about them!
