I am using Display Suite and have followed the instructions below exactly:

  • Enable the sub module Display Suite Extras at Administration > Modules (admin/modules) Go to Administration > Structure > Display Suite and click the secondary tab "Extras" (admin/structure/ds/extras)
  • Select the vertical tab "Others"
  • Check "Region to block"
  • Click "Save configuration"
  • Go to Administration > Structure > Display Suite (admin/structure/ds/layout) and choose "manage display” for the desired content type (e.g., "Article").
  • Select a custom view mode (e.g., "Compact teaser")
  • Ensure a layout is selected in the vertical tab "Layout for … in ..."
  • Click "Save"
  • Choose the vertical tab "Block regions"
  • Enter a name for the region that will be rendered as a block
  • Click "Save"
  • The region is now available in the manage display screen and you can assign fields to it.
  • The block is now available via Administration > Structure > Blocks (admin/structure/ds/blocks) where you can enable it.

I am able to enable the block, however, I can only enter the title and none of the fields I placed in the new region I created can be configured. Has anyone else tried this approach to adding fields to a block?
