I am trying to organize my content as follows, but I am not certain if it is proper to use variants (if there are variants for mini panels) this way. Suppose I have a page A. I would like to easily re-use A as a block in other pages, say as a block with a portion of the content of A and a read more link and placed in a sidebar of the front page. Note that I want to do this for a few hand-selected pages, and I hope these blocks can be moved around easily like panes. So I was thinking if I can do the content of A in a mini-panel A', and use A' in both A and the front page. But that way I must have two ways to render the mini-panel A'. So how do I add variants to A'?

  • How are you create the page in the first place? Is it a panel page a view page or simply a node? Jan 21, 2013 at 4:59
  • They will be panel pages, and the site uses panels a lot, so I tend to look for a panels-solution.

Minipanels don't support variants, however, you can achieve a similar result by adding visibility rules to show/hide minipanel panes on certain pages, according to specified conditions.

Though more simple options are possible, an example using PHP for a visibility check is here
