In our last article we explained the differences between regions and blocks in Drupal 7. You should now understand that regions define the structure and layout of a theme, and blocks are pieces of content that are assigned to show up in specific regions of a theme.

When assigning a block to a region, you'll need to now where the various regions are defined in your Drupal 7 theme. In this tutorial, we'll show you how to view where the individual block regions are located in your theme.

  1. Log into Drupal 7 as an administrator
  2. In the top menu, click Structure
  3. Click Blocks
  4. Click the link towards the top that is similar to Demonstrate block regions (Bartik).

    You will then see a screen similar to the below appear. Each block region will be listed and highlighted in yellow.

    In our next tutorial, we'll create our first block.

It tells the menu entry but misses the concrete URL. Not helpful if the current theme doesn't show the menu link.
