How do I show the same block twice? I have a multiple blog site that is created using views. One half is the mens other is the womens. I created specific regions to be shown on only on specific gender--page.tpl files. I just realized I cannot show the same block twice. How will I get this to work. I am also finding that the block may have to be another view as well.

  • quick and dirty if the block is a view is to create a second block display identical to the first which will create two blocks that do the same thing. – Jimajamma Dec 29 '11 at 2:16
  • Yea I am creating a view and will clone it when it is ready. I actually already cloned it but have a feeling that I will need to update the clone. How do I do this or can I delete the old clone and re-clone when ready. – KenAesthetic Dec 29 '11 at 3:06
  • each clone is a view to itself so you can do whatever you want with it – Jimajamma Dec 29 '11 at 3:09
  • It doesn't even need to be a clone. Just add another block display to the current view and change its filter. – Malks Dec 29 '11 at 6:49

One solution is to use MultiBlock. Another would be to use Panels which would also have value if you wanted to have different layouts for the gender specific pages.
