Adding Information with Blocks

Blocks are used to show extra information on pages, as is often seen in the left or right columns of a page.

1. From your admin panel, go to Administer -> Site building -> Blocks.

2. Next, select the Add block link at the top.

On this screen, set a description, title, and body of the new block.
You can also customize visibility settings, role blocks, and page
specific blocks. Click Save at the bottom when finished.

You will be returned to a listing of all the current blocks on your
site and have the option to make it active by selecting it's position.
Choose a position from the drop down and click the Save Blocks button at the bottom. The block will now be visible on your site.
