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.
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.
