I'm using the nifty Display Suite module to create a custom layout for an event page. I'm using the stacked fluid 2 column layout with the Body field on the left and the image and event fields in the left column.

I would like the body (left region) to wrap around the image and date fields (right region). I''ve been unable to figure out to to accomplish this.


How would I make that happen?

    it was hard to understand what you want, can you provide a picture for your desired look ?

  • This is essentially a HTML + CSS question, is it? The Display Suite does not really matter.

  • You first say "a custom layout", then you say "I'm using the stacked fluid 2 column layout". So in fact you are using a predefined layout, not a custom one.

  • You want to look for hook_ds_layout_info(). The benefit of a custom layout is you can reuse it in other places. Your CSS can be targeted at the layout, instead of being targeted at a special case.

To solve this issue you need to reorder your html by flipping columns in your custom layout

If you inspect your html you'll see that group-left renders first then group-right

<div class="group-left">content</div>

<section class="group-right">image and location </section>

So you need to have the following structure:

<div class="group-left">image and location </div>

<section class="group-right">content</section> 

Then add the following style to your css file

.ds-2col-stacked > .group-left {
  float: right;
  width: auto;

.ds-2col-stacked > .group-right {
  float: none;
  width: auto;

Try to change structure of template file of display suite module file named ds-2col.tpl.php in :

your project > sites > all > ds > layouts > ds_2col > ds-2col.tpl.php
