IMPress for IDX Broker
New! Manage Your Leads
No more going between browser windows with the Lead Management interface. Now you can see and manage your leads right within the WordPress dashboard.
New! Form Integration
Until now the lead capture forms for IDX have been separate from the standard WordPress forms. With IMPress for IDX Broker you can create forms within WordPress and capture lead information straight into IDX Broker. At launch, the integration includes the popular form plugins of Ninja Forms, Contact Form 7, and Gravity Forms.
New! Selective Refresh
Selective refresh (WP 4.5 or later) is available for widgets in the customizer. When an edit is made to any widget, the change is made without having to reload the page.
Omnibar Search Widget
This widget allows you to add an Omnibar Search Widget to your home page. Visitors can then search by city, county, postal code, address, or listing ID. Custom Fields such as School or Subdivision can also be added. No other IDX solution offers this many options in a search widget for your home page.
Mobile Responsive and Mobile-Friendly
All of your templates and widgets will be responsive if you’re using a responsive theme. If you want to give visitors a more simplified, mobile app-like experience, simply activate mobile wrappers.
