New Facebook App Design

iHomefinder Facebook apps now use the same new design we recently introduced with our Responsive IDX. The new Facebook app design will be applied automatically when your Optima Express, OmniPress, or Optima IDX account is set to use the Responsive design option. If you haven't set up your Facebook apps, visit our Knowledge Base for instructions >>. Facebook App Example fbook-responsive

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.
