New project, new thoughts. We have been discussing the ways of displaying material to the end user in Drupal 7. The options that we had were Panels and Display Suite.
I’ve just been playing with Display Suite which I have heard really good things about but never got around to using. Ivan Zugec’s tutorial (part 2 here) helped me get a start but Jyve’s post on Display Suite vs Panels and his Introduction to Display Suite is a useful intro into the ins and outs of both. I have to say that even without these, I found DisplaySuite remarkably intuitive and fairly easy to set up. It has its place as does Panels.
I’m sure that I’ll be posting more on DisplaySuite in the future.
