Configuring Blocks

Drupal uses blocks to position elements in different regions of your web page. For example, if you have any menus, calendars or login items on your front page, those are blocks. What makes Drupal so powerful is its flexibility. Any of these items can be rearranged and moved in a multitude of ways.

If you would like to “turn on” a block that currently isn't displaying, you need to go to the blocks page. To do this, click on the Blocks menu under the Site Building menu in the Admin Menu at the top of the screen. It should look similar to the picture here on the right. If you don't see the Admin Menu, make sure you are logged into the website. If you still don't see it, then you don't have the correct permissions. This will bring you to the blocks page. Here you will find a list of regions that your website has, and which blocks are in each region.

Each block can be dragged to another region (or you can select a region from the dropdown menu). You can remove a block from showing up by setting the region to. All blocks that are set tocan be found at the bottom of the page. Don't forget to save your changes before leaving the page.
