Is it possible to render node fields as blocks with the omega theme and delta module? If I build a complex layout with zones and regions there can be situations where I need just the node title for example to be rendered in a block and then I can place it in the correct region.

Display Suite has just this feature available in Extras -> Other -> "Region to block." It doesn't work with the default view mode though so you will need to create/use a new view. I used "Full content." Then at the bottom of the Manage Display screen there will be a new vertical tab called "Block Regions." From here you create new regions which will be exposed as blocks. You can move any field into a block with this technique.

Delta Blocks (sub module included with delta) makes that available as a block, as well as things like the author, terms, and post date. Combine with the context module and you can place the blocks in whatever order you like for particular content types.

  • Thanks. So here I can see the list I can expose as blocks admin/config/user-interface/delta-blocks However, there's title and some other things but there's not custom fields I have added to my content type. I can't find post date neither. – jjei Jun 17 '12 at 18:44

You could try the CCK Blocks module:

This module allows you to create blocks from fields of the currently displayed node. It is very handy as a simple way to get fields appearing in a block, instead of in the main content region.
