Contextual links


The Contextual links module displays links related to regions of pages on your site to users with access contextual links permission. For more information, see the online handbook entry for Contextual links module.


Displaying contextual links
Contextual links are supplied by modules, to give you quick access to tasks associated with regions of pages on your site. For instance, if you have a custom menu block displayed in a sidebar of your site, the Blocks and Menus modules will supply links to configure the block and edit the menu. The Contextual links module collects these links into a list for display by your theme, and also adds JavaScript code to the page to hide the links initially, and display them when your mouse hovers over the block.
