Search Bar Widget Area

front-page-search-bar

Depending on which Starter Pack you used, the search bar widget area is set up using either the AgentPress Listings plugin or the IMPress for IDX Broker plugin.
You will need to set up each of these plugins before you can use the widgets for Search.
AgentPress – Listing plugin – Add Taxonomy, Terms, and Listings.
OR
IMPress for IDX Broker plugin – Connect API and create Wrapper page.

(This area can also use a search widget from other IDX services, but may require additional styling to look like the demo.)

IMPress for IDX Broker Search

You will want to connect your IDX Broker account to your WordPress website for the IDX Broker search widget to work.

In WordPress, go to Appearance > Widgets > Search Bar.
Then add the IMPress Omnibar Search widget to the Search Bar widget area, and use the following settings.
