How to Enable PHP in Blocks in Drupal

Save

PHP is a web development language that uses a series of scripts and hooks to produce effects; the Drupal CMS, along with many other content management systems, are built with PHP. If you want to extend the function of your Drupal site, you can do so by adding PHP codes within content blocks. By default, the option for enabling PHP coding is disabled; once you enable it in Drupal you can easily add PHP code to a content block.

  • Access your website's Drupal admin panel and log in to the website.

  • Click on "Modules." Scroll down until you find "PHP Filter." Check the box next to the appropriate module, then scroll down and click "Save Configuration."

  • Click on "Structure" then click "Blocks." Click "Add New Block" or click "Edit" next to the block with which you want to use PHP code.

  • Scroll down beneath the "Block Body" section. Click on "Text Input." Select "PHP Code." This allows you to use PHP in the block's body.

  • Enter your PHP code, then scroll down and click "Save Block."
