What is the benefit of Panels Everywhere


Besides the layout creation and management tools, there is another advantage to Panels: performance. Although not that apparent on smaller sites, it can have a major impact on larger installations. If a site is created using the standard Drupal block system, all blocks must load, and then not displayed (if set as so), instead of only pulling appropriate content for the given visitor.

My experience with PE (panels everywhere) was great. I been working for 1 year with PE on a big project and i can say:

  • The first advantage of PE is the entire layout control. while panels only affect the "content" region, PE get full control of all page including header and footer (which is no possible only with panels).

  • Second big advantage its the possibility to select variants as layouts letting you decide wich layout (variant) to show on every page taking that decision with the access arguments like a normal panel.

as you can see there are similarities with Omega theme, and in the fact both modules resolves the same issue.

One of the main advantages of Panels Everywhere is that it lets you override pages that regular Panels does not allow (such as node/add, user, etc).
