Block Module

The Block module is responsible for managing blocks, which are units of content provided by the various modules or added by the administrator. Blocks added by the administrator are called custom blocks, and they can contain HTML or PHP code.

Details on using blocks and configuring the Block module were presented in Chapter 2. There, you learned that blocks can appear in any of the default regions of the screen (left and right sidebars, the header, the footer, and the main content area) or in administrator-defined regions, which will be covered in Chapter 5. You can also configure blocks to appear on some pages but not others.

The Block module defines one permission, Administer Blocks, which allows a user role to create, position, and configure blocks.
