Delta and Context allows you to create multiple layouts without physically touching a .tpl file in your Omega theme. For example, each of the YaleSites Templates has a home page without a Sidebar First region. This was done by rearranging the regions and creating a Delta without the SideBar First region. Then a Context module was used to assign the Delta to only be used on the Home page.
Omega 3 Theme Regions
YaleSites templates only take advantage of a few of the regions available in the Omega 3 Theme. Prior to creating additional layouts, it is important to understand all of the regions available so you can determine how best to create a new layout. The image below provides a grid with all the regions. You can find this grid on your YaleSite in the following way:
- Click on Structure > Blocks in the main Toolbar (black across the top).
- Click on the Omega tab (upper right).
- Click on Demonstrate Block Regions.
