Display suite extra fields are shown in the manage display. Fields such as author, user, AND submitted by, are enabled in the custom regions I have defined using a custom ds layout. When I go to the full content page it does not show any of the extra ds fields that i enabled. Does anybody know what the issue can be?

I'm using a custom ds layout

  label: article
  category: My Layouts
  template: templates/custom_article
  css: css/custom-article.css
      label: header
      label: author
      label: body
  • You need to select your custom layout in full view content Dec 6, 2016 at 9:02
  • It is already selected for the full view content @ShreyaShetty

  • Is your custom layout getting rendered ?? Dec 7, 2016 at 8:26
  • Thats the weird thing I'm not too sure. Like the regions from the layout are shown in manage display and when I put fields into regions they go on the page where they belong but when i inspect it using twig debug I don't see any of the custom html that wrote in the twig file for the layout. @ShreyaShetty

I would try adding a class key, for example:

class: '\Drupal\ds\Plugin\DsLayout'

Also, I think you should update the template line, replace the underscore with a hyphen (and do the same for the actual twig file), for example:

template: templates/custom-article
