Learning to Love Blocks Again | Drupal GovCon

Tue, 05/24/2016 - 21:43 -- rprice

With the release of Drupal 8, the core blocks system is now a powerful publishing system for content in sidebars or landing pages. Blocks have types, fields, revisions and many other benefits now that they are full Entities. If you are a coder, you'll be happy to know that these block types can also be created and extended using OOP techniques.

If you still use Drupal 7, have no fear! The Drupal 8 Block improvements are largely a port of the Bean module (Block Entities Aren't Nodes). Many of the techniques outlined in this session will be applicable to Drupal 7 with Beans.

Bean: Flickr Integration | drupal.org

Thu, 05/03/2012 - 10:56 -- rprice

This module uses the amazing Flickr API module to provide Bean integration. With this module, users can easily create blocks that fetch Flickr images. Currently it provides two ways to search (per block):

Search on a given string
This can be used to show a blocks photos mentioning the client name, for instance.

Search on terms used in the given entity
This can be used to fetch related photos. Suppose you have vocabulary Section (eg: Football). When a node is tagged with Football, you can have a block in the sidebar showing Football photos.
