Pseudo Title

New Drupal Modules - 3 October 2017 - 7:41am

Pseudo Title creates a pseudo field that can be used to move up and down the content of the title in the same administration page where the display of other fields are managed.

The problem that this module addresses is that Drupal 8 doesn't show the Title field in the /admin/structure/types/manage/[CONTENT_TYPE]/display page. Therefore; if your page layout requires that the title of a node in full-view be placed after the output of other fields, then you have to do it by other means.
