Using Multiblock you can collect all those blocks together and use 'one block's worth' of space and put all those blocks into the one space with one of several layouts, whether it's tabs or an accordion, or something else. Several preset layouts are bundled with Multiblock.

What is this?

This is a sort of magic metablock. Suppose you're using Boost and you have a whole bunch of blocks making a course page longer than it should be, or cluttering up your Dashboard.

Using Multiblock you can collect all those blocks together and use 'one block's worth' of space and put all those blocks into the one space with one of several layouts, whether it's tabs or an accordion, or something else. Several preset layouts are bundled with Multiblock.

What styles of presentation are there?

Show and tell time, I guess. Screenshots from 3.6 with Boost with the accent colour changed.

Tabbed layout:

There's also some 2-column layouts where the 'multiblock' container has no title so it integrates better into the look and feel. The styling is designed for Boost so mileage with other themes will absolutely vary.

2 column (equal width):
