How to configure and enable blocks in Drupal

Create some blocks first, the add block link at the top of the admin/build/block page

these blocks would be in different languages

then create a multilingual block, which will let you slot these blocks in. Again, I'm fairly certain you want something for each block even if you don't have a translation-- put another translation in.

from here on the steps are the same for any block

first, click configure next to the block

here you can tell it what pages to display on or not to display on (so you want to do this step before turning the block on)

you list pages as , mediacenter, node/2, user, user/* (for all user pages) etc.

then on the main admin/build/block page, you have the block show up in a region -- left sidebar, footer, above content, etc.

and give it a weight (negative floats highest, positive numbers sink lowest)

and save the block admin page
