  • You’ll want to use the Element Template feature of the plugin.
  • You would create a template file that looks something like this:
    <?php
    $post =  $entity->post();
    if ($post->post_content !== ”) {
    echo apply_filters(‘the_content’, $post->post_content);
    } else {
    echo ‘no description’;
    }
  • Save the file as directory__listing-element_listing_description.html.php in the wp-content/drts/assets/ directory.
  • Go to Directories –> [Your Directory] –> Content Types –> Listing –> Manage Displays –> Detailed and then click the green + icon to add a display element.
  • In the popup window click “Field Template” and select your template file saved previously.
  • Click “Add Element” and place the element where you wish the listing description/no description text to appear. (You can also delete the default Listing Description element)
