Using Display Suite in Drupal 8: How to Use Display Suite Fields

I continue my series on using Display Suite over at WebWash by writing about how to use Display Suite fields.

Think of a Display Suite field as just a fancy formatter which can only be used when you’ve enabled Display Suite on a layout.

A block field, for example, can be implemented through the UI and they’re useful for embedding a view into a layout.

Fields can also be implemented in code if you require something custom.

Using Display Suite in Drupal 8: How to Customize Content Pages

In my latest Drupal 8 tutorial over at WebWash, I write about how to customize content pages or, put another way, entity bundles.

Instead of just moving fields up or down, you can add them to multiple regions, if the layout supports it.
