Create block in drupal 7

In Drupal, the boxes which can be made to appear in various regions of a Drupal website are called Blocks. They are an extensible core feature of Drupal with a simple API provided by the block module. Blocks are similar to "widgets" in content management systems, but are altogether generalized. Blocks can be used to present anything, so just about all content on Drupal sites other than main content, breadcrumbs, and primary/secondary menus is usually a block.

  • Block Title: The title of the block as shown to the user. If you do not want to show any Title, write <none>
  • Block Description: A brief description of your block.
  • Block Body: The content of the block as shown to the user.
