Design Integration with IDX Broker (Static/Dynamic Wrapper)

Using the Dynamic Wrapper 
This will eliminate the need to regularly update your IDX wrapper whenever you make a change to your website. The Dynamic Wrapper always keeps your IDX pages up-to-date so that your they always match the rest of your website design. This is especially useful if you make frequent changes your site, or if you have a "Recent Posts" widget in the sidebar, or a date on the website that needs to always reflect today's date.

To setup your Dynamic Wrapper with IDX Broker, do the following:

  1. Log into your IDX account and go to Designs --> Wrappers.
  2. Select the radio button for Dynamic.
  3. Enter this URL into the Dynamic URL field (except use your domain name, with or without www):
    If using ZSERIES STUDIO/HYBRID:
    www.yourdomainname.com/website/idx_broker_wrapper.asp

    If using XE/Signature Series/Custom:
    www.yourdomainname.com/website/idx_broker_wrapper.asp?custom=1
  4. Make sure not to add the http:// in this field, or it will not work.
  5. Press Save Changes.
If you make changes to your design or menu and they are not changing on the wrapper, keep in mind it could take a few hours to update. You can try clearing the wrapper cache if you need the changes to apply instantly.
  1. Log into your IDX account and go to Designs --> Wrappers.
  2. Click Clear Wrapper Cache.
  3. Press Save Changes.
Using the Static Wrapper
Use the static wrapper when the dynamic wrapper does not work properly, or other reasons. However, keep in mind whenever you make a major change, or navigation menu change to your website, you will need to update your wrapper.

First, you can obtain the wrapper code, such as header and footer from your LinkURealty control panel.

  1. Login to the control panel.
  2. Click on IDX Setup.
  3. Click on Design Integration.
  4. Here will will find code for your design wrapper.
Next, you'll do the following:
  1. Login to your IDX Broker account in a different browser.
  2. Click on Designs.
  3. Click on Global.
  4. Click Static.
  5. Copy the code from the Design Header HTML box on LinkURealty.
  6. Paste that code into the Header HTML box on IDX Broker.
  7. Copy the code from the Design Footer HTML box on LinkURealty.
  8. Paste that code into the Footer HTML box on IDX Broker.
  9. We recommend using our custom style sheet for your IDX Broker integration, for a cleaner look (optional):
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="http://yourdomain.com/website/style/idxbroker.css" type="text/css" />  

  10. Click to the Save Changes button.
