Description: In this classroom course you will learn to use modules designed to help you (as a builder) manipulate your Drupal interface without editing your theme. Create unique layouts that your theme does not support. Layout your node fields so they don't just appear one after the other. Make the node edit form less busy. Use multiple themes within your site. Reuse blocks in different regions without having to make a duplicate of the block. Many modules will be used in this course but the following modules are being highlighted.

* Panels
* Context
* Composite
* Vertical tabs
* One of the theme switching modules (Sections or Page theme)

Pre-requisites: The topics and modules covered in this course assume you are familiar with and have used the modules covered in Drupal Hands-On Intro for Builders.
