It's ok. The learning curve to customize is too time consuming. The platinum version has limitations. The out put is not appealing, even with lotsa customizing. It's not a bad plugin, but I was expecting more. I do not like the wrappers on every page. I would prefer to use shortcodes on my own pages.
I have used idxBroker for about a year and love the look and functions of the plugin. It looks great on my site, however I am still waiting for leads. I have only had a handful over the last year with over 200 widgets and over 550 saved links built. I have paid for idxBroker developers to make everything look amazing, just wish there would be some leads. Also we do not rank very well even after doing much work on the website. I am at a loss to try and figure this out.
This plugin is a MUST for real estate brokers/agents. I installed, activated, filled in activation key and I was up and running. THANKS for a great plugin.
** Site owner needs approval by MLS. The plugin developers have no control over MLS access.
Unchecking the "no thank you, I don't want to submit a review" 1,000 times is just bad form. I literally had to go out of my way to create an account, check an email, confirm my account and log in just to be FORCED to write a review so I'd stop seeing the banner asking about it.
I wish this plugin would stop asking me to review it.
Wish the Advanced Search page as tidier looking. Having the search button in the middle confuses people. Maybe you should just have some features visible and then have the rest "appear" from an "more options" click. Then put the search button at the bottom.
Also, the control for how many listings to show via a widget shortcode seems to be ignored, causing many, many listings to appear when used.
Otherwise, pretty happy with it.
I was told this plugin would transfer all my Idxbroker content on their subdomain to my main website.
This doesn't happen. Still on Subdomain and worthless for seo.
What is the most important factor when adding IDX to your website? That it is accurate and stable. I have tried all the IDX Plugins and this one just works.
This last year they have been adding a ton of cool new toys. There are almost to many.
James says it well and since then IDXBroker has really stepped up what they offer. If someone says they haven't been innovating they haven't been looking. The new IMPress version of what is now their flagship has a lot of features that make it easier for the do it yourself types to have a great looking site but a smart site. The Omnisearch is incredible and gives users a better way to search. At the same time it gives content creators a flash quick way to get more enticing content. There HAS been some growing pains along the way the past few months but they have a ton of tutorials to help. The biggest thing is that they have a private group that you can join and get help from people like you, IDXBroker developer partners and sometimes staff. With more things coming out it's an exciting time to be using this IDX Solution.
We have been using IDX Broker integrated with WordPress for several years now. It is excellent! Great support. It is not simple by any means, but doesn't require in-depth coding knowledge. I manage our site and did all the integration myself a few years ago. We keep it updated and this latest plugin is fantastic and much easier than integrating in the past. Our web site is one of the busiest in our market and we get dozens of very qualified leads from it per month, and always show up fairly high in search rankings, especially long-tail searches. Having a domain and subdomain doesn't seem to affect our rankings at all and I have confirmed that with Google support. We have been tracking analytics on our site for several years and the more integration work I do with IDX broker, the more our traffic stats grow and the more leads we get.
Don't expect to build your web site once, integrate it with IDX broker, then sit back and watch the leads roll in. You have to constantly update, tweak, and improve the site over time, but if you do that, then IDX Broker and WordPress will for sure bring in the leads and send you to the top of the search rankings.
WordPress + IDX Broker = A fantastic combination. We are very, very pleased.
