Create Saved Search or Saved Link

You can create a Saved Search (also called Saved Link) to use in your IMPress Property Showcase widget in Home Listings widget area.

Create Saved Link in IDX Broker

You can create Saved Links in your IDX Broker account.
Go to Design > Website > Saved Links, and follow this tutorial to learn about all the different types of Saved Links, or look below for using 3 listing IDs from your MLS. There is also a helpful video at the bottom of the page.
You can create a Saved Search using a variety of criteria.

Create Saved Link with Three Listing IDs from your MLS

This is how to create a Saved Link using three listing IDs for properties in your MLS.

  1. In IDX Broker, go to Design > Website > Saved Links
  2. Choose Create New button.
  3. In the drop down, choose Listing ID and add 3 Listing IDs separated by commas.
  4. Give the Saved Link a name and Save.

Add Properties to Your Home Page - Under Home Listings - Use a Widget

Then in WordPress, go to Appearance > Widgets > Home Listings.
Add the IMPress Property Showcase widget.
Use these settings:

  1. Add a Title
  2. Choose the Properties to Display from the drop down: Use Saved Link
  3. Choose a Saved Link (if selected above): from the drop down: Your Saved Link
  4. Check Show image?
  5. Check Use rows?
  6. Listings per row: 3
  7. Max number of listings to show: 3
  8. UNCHECK Default Styling?

Add Saved Link to a Page, Post, or Community - Use IMPress Showcase Block

In WordPress, go to the Page, Page, Post, or Community that you want to add the IMPress Showcase Block

Click to add a New Block and search for IMPress. Choose IMPress Showcase.

These are the settings that you want to use:

  1. Choose the Properties to Display from the drop down: Use Saved Link
  2. Choose a Saved Link (if selected above): from the drop down: Your Saved Link
  3. Check Show image?
  4. Check Use rows?
  5. Listings per row: 3
  6. Max number of listings to show:  Any number
  7. CHECK Default Styling? <-- Especially note this setting.

Then you will need to add this CSS to Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS, as the Widget and Block styles are different.

/*CSS for IMPress Showcase Block - CHECK Default Styling */
.entry-content .shortcode .impress-showcase-property a {
border-bottom: none !important;
}

.shortcode .impress-showcase-property {
    background-color: inherit;
    display: inherit;
    height: auto;
    margin: auto;
    width: auto;
}

.shortcode .impress-showcase-property img {
    border: none;
	max-width: 100%;
	position: inherit;
   opacity: 1;
 }

.shortcode .impress-showcase-property .impress-price, .shortcode .impress-showcase-property .impress-address, .shortcode .impress-showcase-property .impress-beds-baths-sqft {
    color: inherit;
    top: 0;
    z-index: 1;
}
.entry-content .shortcode .impress-showcase-property a:focus > .impress-price,
.entry-content .shortcode .impress-showcase-property a:focus > .impress-address,
.entry-content .shortcode .impress-showcase-property a:focus + .impress-beds-baths-sqft,
.entry-content .shortcode .impress-showcase-property a:hover > .impress-price,
.entry-content .shortcode .impress-showcase-property a:hover > .impress-address,
.entry-content .shortcode .impress-showcase-property a:hover + .impress-beds-baths-sqft {
	color: #333 !important;
	opacity: 1;
}

 

Create Saved Link in WordPress

You can also create Saved Links directly in WordPress, although you won't have as many search options.

  1. In WordPress, go to IMPress > Add Search.
  2. You can complete the page with search criteria, similar to what you would do in IDX Broker.
  3. Once you choose your link criteria, provide a Link Display Name.
  4. Then click the green Save Search button.
