[Resolved] HELP: Why are get_template_part and conditional tags breaking my code?

  • I have a block of HTML that shows up in several places across my theme…

    <header class="row">
    	<div class="headline"></div>
    	<hr>
    	<div class="subhead"></div>
    </header>

    Instead of repeating myself I decided to drop my code into a file called headline.php and use get_template_part( 'headline' ) to call my code where I need it without being redundant.

    Then I add a statement to update my values according to the page being display.
    Now headline.php looks like so:

    <?php if (is_home()) {
    	$the_post 	= get_post(2);
    	$headline 	= $headline->post_title;
    	$subhead 	= $headline->post_content;
    } elseif (is_single()) {
    	$headline 	= the_title();
    	$subhead 	= the_content();
    } elseif (is_search()) {
    	$headline 	= "here is the headline for search";
    	$subhead 	= "here is the subhead for search";
    }
    else {
    	$headline 	= "here is the default headline";
    	$subhead 	= "here is the default subhead";
    } ?>
    <header class="row">
    	<div class="headline"><?php echo $headline; ?></div>
    	<hr>
    	<div class="subhead"><?php echo $subhead; ?></div>
    </header>

    I assumed this would work. However, when I refresh my page, <div class="headline"></div> and <div class="subhead"></div> are empty.

    Am I missing something? Can someone tell me what I’m doing wrong?
