I have two customized content types, both having a title field. Yet this field does not appear in the Manage Display panel. Moreover, they are not displayed when the content is displayed.

Is this normal? How can I access those title fields? How can I have them displayed?

    It is an odd quirk of Drupal CMS that on the manage display screen you are not able to manage the display of the title; I often want to have an image display first, but the only way to do this is to change the display on the template level.

It is not normal but may be the theme you use does not display page title or you hide it with css anyway you can go to node.tpl and write echo $node->title to check that


In Drupal 9.4 I had to select a layout first before the title field appeared in "manage display".
