This module provides an easy way to import previously exported Panels definitions from corresponding subfolders.



  1. Create 'sites/all/imports' folder.
  2. Create all necessary subfolders for panels:
    • sites/all/imports/page_manager/handlers
    • sites/all/imports/page_manager/pages
    • sites/all/imports/page_manager/pm_existing_page
    • sites/all/imports/panels/mini
    • sites/all/imports/ctools/ctools_contents
  3. Export the panels you wish to import and paste the export code into separate text files with .inc' extension.
  4. Do not forget to add '<?php' line to the top of the files.
  5. Move files to corresponding subfolders.
  6. Install this module.

Main idea

The idea is that you could have a collection of commonly used panels in a folder. Then, when you start a project, copy the required panels definitions into this module and install. This will add all the panels in one go, saving you from using the Panels import form.

Recommended modules



If you've found the module particularly useful and want to say thank you, there's a wide range of stuff I'd welcome on my wish list (UK) (US).
