Panels: Adding content to a Panel page or Mini panel

When creating a Panel or Mini panel, you can choose to add content to any of the layout regions. This section assumes that you have already created your Panel (Creating a new page) or Mini panel (Creating a Mini panel).

To add content, we must first navigate to our Panel or Mini panel layout. To do so, click “Structure” in your admin toolbar.

You will be presented with a dropdown menu. In this menu, click Add content.

* decoration

You should now see the content listing. These are divided into categories as seen in the image below.

Selecting a category will present you with the available content of that type. For example, clicking “Content” will present us with the options for Content Snippet, Dynamic View, Dynamic Content list and Existing Node.

If we continued our example and clicked “Existing node “we would now be presented with a settings form for that content. Most of the items in this menu will have some type of settings form. Each varies from the other depending on the type of information needed to properly render the content.

Regardless of the settings form, each will have a Finish button. Once you are done changing the settings for any type of content, click “Finish”.

You should now be back at the Panel or Mini panel layout. Once you have added all your content, be sure to click “Update and save” for a Panel or click “Save” for a Mini panel.
