Extending the Display using OOP

In the list_item.php file, when I attempt to update the display with the code used in the tutorial, I am left with a blank screen.

I replaced echo '<div class="listing panel panel-default">' . PHP_EOL; with echo '<div class="listing panel '; switch ($listing->getStatus()) { case 'premium': echo 'panel-info'; default: echo 'panel-default'; } echo '">' . PHP_EOL; and updated the listing by adding a description like so: if (is_a($listing, 'ListingPremium') && !empty($listing->getDescription() { echo '<p>' . $listing->getDescription() . '</p>'; }

Any suggestions?
