I originally wrote this blog post on January 25th, 2012 when I was the Lead Trainer & Themer at Chapter Three. I’m reposting it here (potentially with minor edits) for posterity, but you can read the original article there.
Dear Chapter Three,
I recently had a project where I was tasked with selecting the “Tabs” style for a particular Panels region. I clicked the cog wheel for a particular region, but all I see is “Add content”. What am I doing wrong? Is there a place to enable Panels styles? Do I need another module?
Great questions, Jayson! At first glance, you’d expect that particular functionality to come with the Stylizer module (which comes with the Chaos Tools module). It seems, however, that Panels styles come directly from the Panels module: there’s no additional module to download or enable. If all that you see is “Add content”, you’d better check your permissions to make sure that you have the privileges to “Administer Panels styles”.
