Get the content from a given content type.


$type: The content type. May be the name or an already loaded content type plugin.

$subtype: The name of the subtype being rendered.

$conf: The configuration for the content type.

$keywords: An array of replacement keywords that come from outside contexts.

$args: The arguments provided to the owner of the content type. Some content may wish to configure itself based on the arguments the panel or dashboard received.

$context: An array of context objects available for use.

$incoming_content: Any incoming content, if this display is a wrapper.

Return value

The content as rendered by the plugin. This content should be an array with the following possible keys:

  • title: The safe to render title of the content.
  • content: The safe to render HTML content.
  • links: An array of links associated with the content suitable for theme('links').
  • more: An optional 'more' link (destination only)
  • admin_links: Administrative links associated with the content, suitable for theme('links').
  • feeds: An array of feed icons or links associated with the content. Each member of the array is rendered HTML.
  • type: The content type.
  • subtype: The content subtype. These two may be used together as module-delta for block style rendering.
