To add an IDX Page to your website, simply insert the link you want into your site's menu, sidebar, or wherever else you want the link to display. Some content management systems provide you with tools that ask you for the URL only and don't require you to write any code, in this case you simply copy and paste. However, you can also use these URL's in code you write or modify yourself.
For example, if you want to add the Basic Search link to your website, take the URL provided to you on the Page Links page (e.g., http://www.mywebsite.idxco.com/idx/[unique client id]/basicSearch.php), and plug it into the HTML script below. This script will create an "href" or link to your new IDX search page:
<a href="PASTE URL HERE">Basic MLS Search</a>
The results looks like: Basic MLS Search
Note that the beginning of the example is where the link is located. The "a href" tag tells the browser to create a hyperlink to the URL in quotes. The "Basic MLS Search" text is the anchor, or text for the link. The tag tells the browser to end the link there.
Use this method to add standard or custom links to your navigation, sidebar, or footer. One exception is if you are hosting your site using WordPress. In that case, we recommend that you simply download our free WordPress plugin to add links and Widgets to your website.
If you are iframing your tools in, your iframe code would look something like this:
<iframe src="PASTE URL HERE" width="600" height="600"></iframe>
Example: <iframe src="http://demo.idxco.com/idx/1/basicSearch.php" width="600" height="600"></iframe>
