Drupal Lite 8, 9: Modify Teaser Layout for Use in a View
Applies to Drupal Lite 8 and 9
Access to edit the display of a content type requires the following roles:
- Content Type Manager
If you do not have the appropriate role, please contact your site owner.
Content Types in Drupal Lite 8 and Drupal Lite 9 have multiple layouts. Content items can be displayed using different view modes: Teaser, Full content, Print, RSS, etc. Teaser is a short format that is typically used in lists of multiple content items. Full content is typically used when the content is displayed on its own page.
A view is basically a list of other content -- for example, a list of staff or a list of news articles. Generally, the list should contain a subset of the content that is displayed on the Full Page layout -- for example, the person's name and image, or the news article title and a snippet of the article.
The Teaser Layout is used in views. To create a view, please refer to Drupal Lite 8, 9: Create a New View to Display a List of Content on a Page.
Edit the Teaser Layout
The Teaser Layout should be a single column, since it is displayed on a page using a View.
Any content that is in the content type can be added to the teaser layout. Additional blocks can be added.

- Select the operations drop-down button for the content type.
- Select Manage Display.
- Near the top of the page, select Teaser.
- Select the Manage Layout button. The Teaser layout is displayed.
- Add, remove, and rearrange the default blocks.
Select Save Layout at the top of the page.
