Add Custom Content

Custom content can be added to panel pages either by referencing an existing node (preferred method), or by creating content within a region on the page.

Step 1: Click the "Edit content" link next to the name of your panel page.

Step 2: You will be taken to a page that shows the regions of your panel page. Click on the gear icon in the upper left corner of a region.

Step 3: Then select "Add content" from the dropdown menu.

Step 4: This will take you to a page where you can add widgets and custom content.

New custom content:
Clicking the “New custom content” link will take you directly to an editor where you can type in the content you desire to shown in the widget.

Existing node (preferred method):
To reference an existing node, you will need to type the number of the node in the first text field. The number of the node can be found in the URL of the page you want to add. If a custom URL has been set, you can find the node number by clicking the "edit" button on the page (For more information see "Creating a Web Page"). There are options to override the title of the node, leave existing node title, link the node title to the full node, allow comments and 'read more' links and tell whether to show the entire node or just a teaser (build mode). 
Don’t forget to click the “Finish” button when you’re done typing.

Edit content that has already been created

Existing node: simply click the "edit node" link that shows when you hover over the content on the page.

Custom embedded content: navigate to "Panels" and edit the page where the content is placed. Click the gear icon and select "edit".
