I am trying to override or alter Layout Builder's default help text. Is is possible to do this? If so, how?

I have added some help text in a hook_help() function in a custom module but I can only get it to add to Layout Builder's help text. I can't find a way to override the default text.

I don't recall doing exactly this, but I think you can use a hook_module_implements_alter() for this:

function MYMODULE_module_implements_alter(&$implementations, $hook) {
  if ($hook === 'help') {

This should disable layout_builder_help(), and then just yours will run. A hook_help_alter() would be nice, but I don't recall ever seeing an issue for it.

  • Thank you! I had the hook_module_implements_alter part working but I couldn't figure out how to remove the existing layout builder help. This works!
