• I have a custom block type, which uses its own theme template.
  • I have a display suite token field link_card_edit_block
  • It just uses HTML and tokens to create a link.
  • I want to use that field in my block type template.

  • Without the custom template, the field shows up.

  • If I add {{ content }} in the custom block template, the field shows.
  • But I can't figure out how show that field individually.

Here is what I have tried:

{{ content['#block_content'].field_link_card_edit_block.value }}
{{ content['#block_content'].field_link_card_edit_block[0] }}
{{ content['#block_content'].field_link_card_edit_block }}
{{ content.field_link_card_edit_block.value }}
{{ content.field_link_card_edit_block[0] }}
{{ content.field_link_card_edit_block }}

All of them produce nothing.

  • You probably copy-and-pasted these snippets from examples without Display Suites, but now you have additional regions in the display mode and you need a longer path to find the field inside of {{ content }}.

  • I did not copy and paste these. I was experimenting. What might those longer paths be?

  • This depends on how you've configured the Display Suite options for this display mode. As far as I can remember enabling the module adds already a default layer. Use kint() or Xdebug.

  • It would help to have an example of what a path would look like. Where would I use kint()? What would I be trying to find with it? What would it look like?

My teammate figured this out:

{{ content['dynamic_token_field:block_content-link_card_edit_block'] }}
