Add and Remove Custom Text in Drupal

Posted December 7th, 2015 at 12:05 pm.

Custom text can be used to place text above or below other page elements when placing it in the usual “body” text area does not meet your needs.

To add custom text

Click “Customize this Page”

Click a plus sign to add a new pane


Click “new custom content”


Type your custom content in the body area.


Optionally, add a title. It will look like this:

Click “Finish” at the bottom of the box.


Use the arrows to drag your custom text to its desired location, and if necessary, move other page elements around.


Click “save” at the bottom of the screen.


To remove custom text

If you click “customize this page” and a pane of text has “Custom” in front of it as in the below screenshot, you will not be able to delete it by editing the page and must delete the custom text box itself.

Click the trashcan button on your custom pane to delete custom text.


Note: Under most other circumstances, please do not use the trashcan button. If you delete the pane for normal page content (as opposed to custom), you will delete the container for that content and thus it cannot appear on the page when you enter it. Please contact if content is not appearing correctly for this or any other reason– these panes can usually be restored.
