Reviews

Highly recommend! This plugin has been great find for our real estate project.

Not sure why all the bad online reviews for this plugin. My team recently took on a rather large real estate project and we typically program everything in Drupal, however we couldn’t find an adequate solution for this project under that platform so we headed over to WordPress. After finding multiple themes that would work we then needed to address adding the mls content onto the website and reached out to Diverse Solutions for a free trial. Soon after we connected with an individual named Sean Dolan (he still remains our primary contact with the company) Sean’s ability to clearly explain the mls approval process and no pressure sales approach was a great first impression for the whole team. Once our client agreed to move forward our experience with customer service has been great and now our client is extremely satisfied with the results. If you’re looking to add mls content to a real estate website this plugin is the way to go hands down!

DSIDXPRESS appears to have been abandoned by Diverse Solutions

nobody answers the forum threads anymore , multiple complaints about the plugin not delivering the listing as per the MLS IDX requirements 30% of listings give server internal errors and won’t show and nobody seems to care anymore, the plugin relies on Diverse Solutions server hosted listings, it seems the owner is not maintaining the plugin anymore, but keeps collecting high fees from Realtors for such extremely poor performance

Total Crap. Do not buy.

Broke with no warning and is not being compatible with SSL. I have used probably hundreds of plugins over the years and never had an experience this bad. I have never before left a bad review, because I believe people are generally doing the best job they can, but I would hate to see someone else waste their time.

Technical Support POOR

They took the live feed down for maintenance claiming that it would last about 12 hours. It has now been 3 days and nothing works. This is the second time this happened. They are totally unresponsive when they have this kind of problem. Will be looking for something better and more reliable

Nice in the surface only

IDX pages generated by this plugin produces literally thousands of errors when running SEO audits with SEranking.com and other services such as Semrush.com. Helps to slow down the speed of our websites. Many IDX pictures are not optimized. We have been struggling to make our sites better for over a year but we are learning this plugin is not friendly at all. Besides, it is not SSL friendly and we have been told for over a year they are working on it. They keep saying they must complete the spin off from Zillow to work on this important issue for several months now. We do not recommend.
