Creating a Custom Panels Layout in Drupal 7 (Video Tutorial)

There are a lot of great tutorials on the web and, as Chris pointed out, Drupal is a pretty developer friendly platform. With some chutzpah and the power of Google, you can build just about anything in Drupal.

But for the beginner to intermediate Drupaler, even a well crafted text tutorial can be just a bit outside their knowledge and hard to follow. As someone who learns visually, sometimes I just wanted someone to show me how to do something. In that spirit, I offer up this lesson on creating your first custom Panels layout. I hope you find it useful and if you have questions or feedback, feel free to leave them in the comments.

Be sure to watch our other two Drupal tutorials:

Thank you for assembling this

Thank you for assembling this tutorial. I'm fairly new to the world of Drupal, and thus far, I've been able to build most pages with the block system. However, Panels - and specifically, constructing custom panels - was a complete mystery until now.

Thank You!

Just used this tutorial today, worked perfectly. Thanks so much! :)
