Drupal, the script that runs the site, displays all of its content in functional items called boxes. The main area of the page usually displays a single box containing items being viewed: news stories, forum threads, or FAQ questions and answers.

However, depending on your display preferences, the columns to the left and/or right of the main area may also display multiple boxes for different functions or kinds of content, like newsfeeds.

Future versions of Drupal will allow a user to completely customize what boxes they see and where; until then that is controlled primarily with the use of Themes.

This section will list each of the specialized boxes and what they do.
