I'm trying to customize my search results template and am having trouble with one detail. For all of the results I have it set to display the category and other misc details. This is great for posts, but I don't want to display that info for pages (i'm using a plugin to search both pages & posts).
In the loop I need some kind of if/else statement to detect whether that item is a post or page. I've tried is_page() but that doesn't work. What is the correct syntax to use to detect whether the post_type is page or post?
I've also tried this but it doesn't work:
<?php if ($post_type = 'page') : ?> display this <?php else : ?> display something else <?php endif; ?>
