Drupal Enterprise 7: Move the Display of a Field for an Existing Content Type (with Panelizer)

The following instructions are for websites using the default UMN Drupal Enterprise 7 (DE7) configuration.

Drupal uses panes to display content within a layout. Panes can be moved around within a layout. Panes can move from one region to another or from one position within a region to another.

This is the seventh of ten tasks in Creating a New Content Type.

  7. Click Content in the upper right-hand corner.
    Options menu for Full page override include Settings, Context, Layout Content and Breadcrumbs. The Content button is highlighted.
