In the Beginner Level we studied the basics of creating and configuring block visibility. In this unit we expand our knowledge of the core block functionalities using the following additional modules:

  • Block Title Link, changes block titles into links.
  • Block Subtitle, adds a subtitle field to blocks.
  • Image Block, creates image blocks.
  • Block More Link, allows us to add an extra “see more” link to blocks.
  • Block Class, allows us to add CSS classes to blocks. We can then apply different styles to those that are in the theme style pages.
  • Block tab, groups all blocks from a region and displays them as tabs.
  • Block Visibility by Term, controls block visibility via the taxonomy terms of the displayed content.
  • Block Refresh, allows us to configure a block to update at regular, defined intervals, using jQuery/AJAX.
  • Multiblock, to create multiple copies of a block. We can then distribute these blocks in different regions and change their individual settings.
  • Block reference, adds a block reference field to entities.
