Panels 3 Overview – Omar Bickell – DrupalCamp Montreal 2009

Panels 3 is an amazingly powerful tool for building websites. So much so, in fact, that I wonder if I’ll ever do another website without it. From creating complex layouts for viewing or editing content, to determining contexts and passing parameters around without any snippets, Panels has something for both beginners and experts alike.

Lullabot – Drupal Voices 116: Sam Boyer on the Panels module

Sam Boyer (aka sdboyer) talks about the state of the Panels 3 module, which is described as a “drag-and-drop content manager and layout tool which can be used build complex Drupal sites without any custom code.” He talks about how people usually use Panels, some of the new features, as well as looking forward to some of the talk about the future context for Drupal 8.

Context Module

Context allows you to manage contextual conditions and reactions for different portions of your site. You can think of each context as representing a “section” of your site. For each context, you can choose the conditions that trigger this context to be active and choose different aspects of Drupal that should react to this active context. Think of conditions as a set of rules that are checked during page load to see what context is active. Any reactions that are associated with active contexts are then fired.
