Have you ever wanted to control the way fields appear in your content in Drupal without having to deal with template files? Do you need specific layouts for certain content that are beyond what comes with standard Drupal view modes?

Display Suite might be your solution!

Whether you are new to Drupal or have built a number of sites with it already, you can learn something from this session. We will be looking at the many features of the Display Suite module.

Some of the functionality I will demonstrate includes:

  • changing the layout of node content to have fields in multiple columns
  • adding custom fields to content layouts
  • altering the HTML markup of fields when they are rendered
  • integrating Views and Display Suite

We’ll also go briefly go over some alternatives to Display Suite as well as modules that complement it well.
