Display Suite module allows you to take full control over your content display. You can use a drag-and-drop interface to arrange your nodes, views, comments and user data.

Display Suite provides a predefined list of layouts for easy drag-and-drop designing!

By defining custom view modes, you can define how one piece of content should be displayed in different places such as teaser lists, search results, the full node, views etc.
