Attaching Panels to Any Content or Entity using Panelizer

Loading...

Panelizer is a powerful module that allows you to attach panels to any entity and view mode in Drupal. You can create default templates for all content in a content type, for example, or you can create one-off pages with unique layouts and content panes.

In this lesson...

  • Walk through Panelizer admin UI
  • Panelize Article content
  • Set up default Panelizer template
  • Override versus Update Default Template

By the end of this lesson, you should be able to configure Panelizer settings, enable Panelizer for a content type, and understand the benefits and limitations of creating one-off pages that override the default template versus updating the default template.

Enabling the Panels In-Place Editor is recommended for this lesson.
