Property Search City Selector

ctyslct

The city selector within your property search page allows users to quickly add and remove cities from their searches. This list is accessed by selecting "View All" next to the location field on the property search page (the city list is not included in search widgets). Here are some ways you can customize the city selector:

 

  • City List Format

    The "City" option will display city names. The "City, State" option will display city names followed by the state abbreviation. The "City, County Sorter" option will display city names organized by county.

  • Custom City List

    By default, all cities in your MLS will appear in the city selector on the search form. In order to have only certain cities display, you can switch the "Custom City List" setting to "ON" and select the cities to appear within the city selector.

To make any of these customizations, login to your IDX Control Panel and select SETUP > Search Settings > Search Cities.

Property Type Search Options

The property types within your property search form can be customized for your market or area of expertise. Here are the customizations you can make:

 

  • Exclude Property Types

    Choose what property types are available in your search form. For example, you might choose to include just the Commercial property search option if that is your specialization.

  • Change Property Type Names

    Change the names used for different property types within the search form.

    Example: "Townhouse" might be more suitable than "Condo" in your area.

  • Set Default Price Ranges

    Set default min/max price ranges for different property types.

To make any of these customizations, login to your IDX Control Panel and select SETUP > Search Settings > Property Types & Prices.

Shortcode Option for Adding Valuation Request Forms

The Responsive versions of Optima Express & OmniPress now offer a shortcode option for easily adding Valuation Request forms to any page or post:

[optima_express_valuation_form]

Optima Express clients will need to update the Optima Express plugin to version 2.5.0 or higher.

Shortcodes are available for adding the complete content of other IDX pages as well. These are listed in the WP Shortcode Selector or visit our Knowledge Base for the complete list >>.

Search Engine Friendly "Listing Not Found" Pages

When a listing is removed from your MLS® System, a "Listing Not Found" page will now return a 404 error. This error is beneficial for your SEO as search engine crawlers will no longer attempt to index the page where the listing information was once found on your site. This happens automatically when using the Responsive versions of Optima Express, OmniPress, and Optima IDX.
