Im trying to figure out how to show the title of the parent post wither on the parent or child of parent.

Ie: Page parent About > child Contact > child 2 "Staff"

The nav will say:

 - Contact
 - Staff

No matter if on "about" or "contact" or "Staff"

I have:

post_parent) {
$parent_title = get_the_title($post_parent);
echo $parent_title;

Works great when in child, but does not show when in parent.

Any suggestions?
post_parent) {
$parent_title = get_the_title($post_parent);
echo $parent_title;
