Creating pages with Panels involves a lot of configuration which can take a lot of time and effort. In order to avoid re-doing all that work on another instance of the site, we can export this configuration into code using Features and deploy it in the usual way (using git or FTP).

In this lesson, we will:

  • Export a custom panels page
  • Take inventory of all panes
  • Create a new Feature to export configuration

By the end of this lesson, you will be able to export a basic panel page configuration that contains a View using Features.

Demo site log in:

  • Navigate to /user
  • Login with admin/admin
