Create custom region in Drupal

Drupal is a popular Content Management System.In this tutorial,I will cover how to create custom regions in Drupal 7 themes.Regions in the drupal is same like positions in other cms which is used to define the position of content or block in front.

Drupal provides own pre-defined regions in a theme but sometimes, as per your requirement you want to create new own regions in drupal

So, lets see how to do it.

Steps

1: Go to the theme front theme folder and open yourtheme.info file and put the below code into it.

You can change the above name of region to the any desired name you want which looks like below screen in admin.

Keep in Mind If newly created region will not display in block section of admin,go to the appearance,select theme and save configuration.

2. Open your theme’s page.tpl.php file and here you need to place the relevant template tags.The regions are rendered using the function render() of Drupal
