Drupal Context Module

The default block system in Drupal is adequate for simple sites, but if you need more control, then the Context module is a great solution.

The Context module sets up conditions and reactions for blocks, allowing you to place them anywhere, for any reason.

In this class, Robert gives us a great tour through the module, providing a number of examples. He also offers his thoughts on the differences between Context and Panels for managing blocks.
