The Title Display module allows you to render the title of a node as part of the
content area. The title can then be placed between other fields instead of being
positioned at the top of the content.

Settings for how the title is displayed is done per content type and display
mode, with options for configuring the HTML tag (H2, H3, etc.) and extra classes
that might be desired.

Note that when enabled on a display mode, the normal title displayed by the
node template is suppressed to prevent the title from displaying twice.

Potential Conflicts

This module potentially conflicts with the "Title" module and the
"Display Suite" collection of modules. It should not be used at the same time
as those other modules.

This feature is also planned to be included in Backdrop core at some point in
the future. See these two issues:

This module is intended to work as a lightweight solution until core provides
the feature directly.
