Context User Interface Block Placement

To place Blocks through the “Context” user interface, follow these steps:

  1. Make sure you have the correct permissions to enter the “Context” interface.
  2. Log in and click the “Structure” link in the admin menu.
  3. Click the “Context” link.
  4. Where the Blocks UI worked on individual blocks, a "context " is a more generalized set of “Conditions” and “Reactions”. Going back to the PLA example, you could make a similar "context" with the condition of the "path" being test, and a reaction of placing your block in a certain region of the ALA theme. Such a context would look like the image above.
  5. Use the condition "Path", and the reaction "Blocks".
  6. With the "Path" text box, you include multiple paths or exclude paths by prepending a line with a tilde (~).
  7. If necessary, specify lesser-used conditions available, such as the "role" (permission level) of the user, the taxonomy of the node, etc.
  8. To order blocks, select in both interfaces and assign numerical weight values. The weight values of one interface will respect the values of the other interface.
  9. Click “Save” at the bottom of the page.
