#3 Blocks

Blocks is a way to combine different types of overviews & articles into one page. It's a way to create more varying layouts on one page. The home page is an example of a blocks layout (unless you changed it to something else). In the example above there is a blocks page, with two overviews, that in turn contains 6 and 4 articles:

If you place an article directly under a blocks template page, it will only show the overview text, and perhaps a read more link in case there is more text in the body field
