How can I put one block, for example the main navigation block, in two different regions. In Drupal 7 this was possible through the Menu Block module, but as this module won't be ported to Drupal 8, I guess there is an other method.


This functionality is present out of the box in Drupal 8. You can actually place the same block multiple times in different regions.

For adding a block multiple times:

  1. Go to Admin -> Structure -> Block layout (/admin/structure/block).
  2. Click on "Place block" button besides the region name.
  3. Select any block you wish to add to that region.

Follow the same steps to add block to a different region.

  • Great improvement! Don't know, why I didn't saw this! – user5950 Jan 20 '16 at 13:05
