Not sure if i am going about this the right way but my intended goal is this:

Create a sticky footer that displays:

  1. In Section 1(Left section) a Link to Latest magazine issue.
  2. In Section 2 (Right Section) A. Either show the latest Archived Articles. B. Allow a user to input or select their own desired archived article.

Can I use a view to display this, or should I use a block? If I can accomplish this with a view, what should my approach be?

enter image description here

if you number of archive and data in this block all always this (not need generate dynamic) you can create them with 2 static block that their link redirect user to a page that data was generated by views,(views page ).

and if you block data is not static and you want they generate dynamically I suggest you use views block(this mean a view with block display).

I think this link can help you it describe how to create a block that show month name and when click on each month related data according to the that month fetch by view.

  • Looks like a workable solution.... After reviewing the link i forgot to mention that i am using the panels module. Will this work if i add the the view block to the region with the panels module enabled?
