How to Use the Display Suite Module in Drupal

Rod Martin · May 27, 2012

Display Suite module allows you to take full control over your content display. You can use a drag-and-drop interface to arrange your nodes, views, comments and user data.

Display Suite provides a predefined list of layouts for easy drag-and-drop designing!

By defining custom view modes, you can define how one piece of content should be displayed in different places such as teaser lists, search results, the full node, views etc.

While Panels is a very popular module for controlling the layout of your Drupal content,it can be complicated and it’s often overkill for many tasks.

Display Suite is a lighter, easier option that allows you to easily create custom layouts for your content.

  • You’ll control the layout full nodes
  • You’ll see how to add Views into your node layout
