I'm working on a site where much of the back-end is handled by a site-specific custom module.
I have a sidebar region and within
Within module-thing.php is a call to
<?php print render($page['sidebar']); ?> to print a region but it is not showing anything despite the region being set with content within the Blocks administration. I'm wondering if this is expected to work from within a module.. is there something i can do to show it?
I found this (right at the top) but doesn't seem to work in drupal 7 http://www.chrischen.me/content/drupal-how-access-regions-blocks-themes-or-modules..
