I need to change the content of a block on the landing page based on user input.
Basically, I have a few links and a search form; if the user clicks on a link, I want the block to display some text, based on which link was clicked, and if the user uses the search form then to display information from an external database.

Edit I left this site for a while & now am coming back to it. I thought about it and if it's too hard to do in a module, then I could just make different pages for the texts & link them. And displaying data from the database is trivial.

  • How is your block created? Is it through code/views/standard etc? – Chapabu Nov 8 '11 at 23:30
  • can you code PHP? – Mawg Dec 19 '11 at 5:29
  • @Chapabu - standard. – elssar Dec 19 '11 at 10:58
  • @Mawg a little, though I won't have a problem learning as I already know a couple of languages. – elssar Dec 19 '11 at 10:59

You should try the Context module.
