I have the feeling that this feature doesn't work anymore, or I don't understand how it's working.

I have a content with 2 fields : body, and media field.
Media field is optional.

I put media field in left column and body in middle column.
I checked "hide empty regions"

If in the content page the media field hasn't been provided, the div of the left column is displayed anyway, apparently $left is not empty
<div class="field field-name-field-video-event field-type-media field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"></div></div>

i'm using the last dev version of 22th september

Works fine here with all other fields - looks like media formatters are rendering something although there isn't something in it. Try experimenting with another field, it that works fine, than it's media.

You're right, i just tested with a text field, and the region left is now empty. I have to look on the media module.

Project:Display Suite» Media

I have just tested this media field without the display suit, the behavior is the same. The media field is displayed even if not filled in the content edition process.

I can confirm this error: D7.9 + Media 7.x-1.0-rc2


  • For an image field that is uploaded/managed by a media "Media File Selector" widget,
  • With display (full or teaser) set to use a media style
  • If that image field is left empty on a specific node,
  • The wrapper DIV for the field is still displayed

Example of why this is a problem: I have an image that has a border placed on the wrapper div. Standard Drupal behavior is that if a field is empty, the wrapper DIV for the field is not displayed. With this bug, however, the DIV will be displayed-- this shows the border around an empty space.

I have a hacked solution that involves the template.php file and some CSS. If anyone is interested, let me know and I can post here.
