1The panels module is the ideological son, successor to and almost complete \r
2replacement for the dashboard module. This module allows you to create pages \r
3that are divided into areas of the page. Where the dashboard module only gave \r
4four areas--top, bottom, left and right--this one is a completely flexible \r
5system that includes a couple of 2 column and 3 column layouts by default, but \r
6is also highly extensible and other layouts can be plugged in with a little HTML \r
7and CSS knowledge, with just enough PHP knowledge to be able to edit an include \r
8file without breaking it.\r
9\r
10Perhaps most importantly, unlike the dashboard module it requires no fiddling \r
11with PHP code to include the things you want; the interface lets you add blocks, \r

12nodes and custom content just by selecting and clicking. \r

14If you want to override the CSS of a panel, the easiest way is to just copy\r
15the CSS into your theme directory and tweak; panels will look there before\r
16including the CSS from the module, and if it exists, will not include the\r
17module's CSS. If you want to just change a tiny bit but keep the basic\r

18structure, just add your changes to your style.css instead.\r

20If you're having problems with IE and your panels falling below your sidebars,\r
21try setting the width of the main panel area (example, .panel-2col-stacked) to\r
2298%.\r
