    and learned about making things sitewide,
  • 0:13
    let's build a few more contexts so we can start understanding when
  • 0:16
    and where we would want to use it on our websites.

    Our current demo website was built with two different home
  • 0:22
    pages using the Front Page module.
  • 0:24
    Along with the Front Page module, we use multiple contexts

In this lesson we will discuss different use cases for when one would use Context module. We will demo a site that has a home page and a user dashboard that acts as an authenticated users home page. We will demonstrate one of the advantages of Context by placing blocks in different locations depending on which page we're looking at.
