Search Bar

Home Page General

Go to Pages > All Pages > Homepage. Click to Edit it.

  • Look at the WordPress Settings – click the Gear icon – in the upper right.
  • Click Document (not Block) just below the Gear icon.
  • Near the bottom is Page Attributes and Template. The template selected should already be “No Sidebar Wide.”
    • This template is best to use when you want to use a full-width cover block at the top of a page.
    • You can choose a different template, but then you would want to change the Genesis Settings to:
      Hide Title and Hide Featured Image and Layout: Full Width Content.

Note that if you lose the Cover Block and Search Bar, you can add it from the Block Patterns:

  • Cover Image – Text – IDX Broker Search

Before Adding the Search Bar Section

  1. You will want to get an IDX Broker account before connecting your Search Bar.
  2. You will also want to set up the IMPress for IDX Broker plugin before connecting your Search Bar.

To Edit the Search Bar

The IDX Broker Search Bar is inside a Group Block. (Review WordPress Blocks, but there is no tutorial on Group Block yet.)

Group Block Settings:

  • At the top:
    • Alignment is Wide Width
  • In the sidebar:
    • In Advanced > Additional CSS class(es) 
    • Add search-bar
