A Visual Approach to Drupal's Lego Blocks: Page Manager and Panels
The process of building Drupal websites has been compared to playing with Legos building blocks and it's no wonder. Drupal's core architecture uses a building block approach, with each part locked tightly to the other.
There are a set of contributed modules, though, that take this analogy further. Page Manager, a part of Chaos Tools Suite, and Panels, which provides numerous options for content and form presentation, allow a Drupal site builder to assemble complex layouts and content configurations without needing any custom code or advanced theming experience.
This session is designed to help beginner and intermediate developers explore the many options Page Manager and Panels provide, especially when used with Views.
We'll dig deep into these modules to find a wide variety of building blocks to add to your set of Legos.
