The following is intended for people not familiar with PHP coding and illustrates how to apply styling to content inserted into a page using PHP.

Here is an example of a very simple PHP snippet that displays the Site slogan.

<?php
/**
* the following displays the site slogan
*
*/
print variable_get("site_slogan", "");
?>

Click for a simple example of how to add styling to the content displayed by the php snippet.

Using some simple HTML functions, such as creating a table or using DIVS, you can start creating much more sophisticated layouts using multiple snippets in the same page. For some guidance and tips it is worth looking at a more sophisticated php Snippet that inserts the site mission and a list of upcoming events in a 2 column table side by side, followed by a list of the recent weblog entries.
