  // display something else
<?php endif;?>

Accessing the Listing Type title

If you need to get the listing type title for a particular listing use the code below in listing detail pages:

<?php echo $this->listing_type->title;?>

In list pages or modules where there's more than one listing you need to access the title directly from the ListingTypes service container like this:

<?php echo $this->listing_type->getById($listing['ListingType']['listing_type_id'])['ListingType']['title'];?>

The code above can also be written in a more readable way shown below:

$listingTypeId = $listing['ListingType']['listing_type_id'];
$listingType = $this->listing_type->getById($listingTypeId);
echo $listingType['ListingType']['title'];
