I am trying to use panels to implement something that in the past I had done with blocks. My theme has a region called "content top", this displays content above the secondary menu (the tabbed menu that every node has with view edit etc). When I switch over to panels, I can't figure out how to place content in any other region except for the main area ... any ideas

Panels are page nodes and can not be put into regions as we do with blocks. Try mini panels to create panels for regions or itself panels.

  • Is there any way to move the menu into the panel then? The menu seems to appear above the panel even when you override blocks and regions

  • For every menu there is an associated menu block created by menu module that can be put into any region or panel. Jun 14, 2011 at 13:34
  • Sorry I wasn't clear, I was referring to MENU_LOCAL_TASK (the tabbed menu) not the primary or secondary.

You can disable all standard Drupal blocks in the panel page settings and add menu directly to panel.
