"Why isn't my main content block the full width of the page?"

January 25, 2018
There you are, building your site, and you come across a page where there's a noticeable space either before or after your main content in the First or Second Sidebar region.  What's going on here? And, more importantly; how do you fix it?

Reusing your blocks

One of the powerful benefits of using a content management system like Drupal is the ability to reuse the blocks available in the service, but reusing your blocks can mean a couple different possibilities:

Featured People

The featured people block is a system block (View) that will pull in information from an already-created Person page in your site. If you don't already have the profile completed,  learn how to create a person page now. Note: you can create a person profile and hide it from your regular people directory using Additional Options (on the right side of your admin page) > Promotion options > Hide from Directory checkbox.

Trumba blocks

UC Davis utilizes the Trumba system for its central calendaring and event listing needs, which can also be used in your SiteFarm site. 

Calendars displayed can use your own department's Trumba account ID or an account ID of another department on campus, such as Academic Dates,  Athletics, or Arts and Entertainment.

RSS Feed block

The RSS Feed block is a system block (View) that will pull in information from an external source of your choosing and display the RSS content within the block container in the page on which it has been placed.
