Drupal Lite 7: Edit the Layout for an Existing Content Type (with Panelizer)

Displaying content using panels requires three things: fields, a layout, and the mapping of those fields to the layout. These instructions are for selecting and applying a layout.

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

Additionally, your role in Drupal may not have access to this tool. Contact your site administrator for additional information.

  8. Click Layout in the upper right-hand corner.

  11. Click Continue. You will see a preview of the new layout with the display panes assigned to the regions associated with the new layout.
  12. Click Save. You will see the new layout with display panes in one or more regions. You will also be in the Content tab instead of the Layout tab.
