    9. In the Region drop-down, select the Content region

    11. This will add the Drupal content region to your Master template. This is required on your Master template as your Content templates and content render within the Content region. For more information see Adding Drupal regions to your master template

    Your master template must include the Region element, configured to render the Drupal content region.
