I have a panel. I have my link to the panel. What I can't do is put that page as a block. Honestly, I'm not sure the purpose of a panel if you can't put it anywhere other than link to it.
I read you can use mini-panels to make a block. Is this accurate? If it is can I convert a Panel that I already have into a Mini-Panel so that when I go to the blocks, I will see that Mini-Panel and be able to assign it to a region?
Am I misunderstanding things?
