I am very new to Drupal. I want to add multiple content to my homepage,very simple,like this structure,I need to add two contents ,Main Content 1 and Main Content 2. I am able to add Main content 1 easily, but how can i add the main content 2 below the main content 1?. Will I be able to do it from the admin panel or I will need to change the theme structure?
You can easily customize your theme depend upon your requirement
Open up your theme's .info file and you should see some regions like this:
regions[featured] = Featured
regions[content] = Content
regions[sidebar_first] = Sidebar first
regions[sidebar_second] = Sidebar second
to add a new region just type in a new one in that .info file. I'd be careful of replacing any though as there are several regions in D7 that are required.
Then you'll need to print out your new region in your page.tpl.php file which goes something like this now:
<?php if ($page['sidebar_first']): ?> <div id="sidebar-first" class="column sidebar"><div class="section"> <?php print render($page['sidebar_first']); ?> </div></div> <!-- /.section, /#sidebar-first --> <?php endif; ?>
Don't forget to clear your cache or you won't see the new region. It really helps to poke around in some other D7 themes and see how they've done things also.
