Links to your IDX search pages can easily be added to your site as menu items in your main navigation. There are two methods you can use to add these links to your main site navigation: using the Menu tool in Wordpress, or by using a 3rd party plugin called Page Links To. Using the Menu tool in Wordpress to add IDX links will be the easiest option if you have already set up your main website navigation using this tool. If you are not using the Menu tool to manage your site navigation in Wordpress, then you’ll probably want to use Page Links To to add your IDX links.
