Working with Blocks

  • John K. VanDyk


Blocks are snippets of text or functionality that usually live outside the main content area of a web site, such as in the left or right sidebars, in the header, in the footer, and so on. If you’ve ever logged in to a Drupal site or navigated to a Drupal administrative interface, then you’ve used a block. Block permissions and placement are controlled within the administrative interface, simplifying the work of developers when creating blocks. The block configuration page is located at Administer ➤ Site building ➤ Blocks ( build/block).
