We do not currently offer IDX products that can be integrated with Joomla or Drupal websites. We are interested in supporting platforms that are in demand and may offer products for these platforms in the future if we determine the demand warrants the required development investment.
Our Optima IDX accounts are easily integrated using an "HTML wrapper" method or using framesets (iframes). We recommend the HTML wrapper method wherever possible but frameset integration may be necessary in some cases. Signing up for a free trial account is an easy way for web developers to get hands-on experience with the website integration process.
