Adding Responsive IDX to a Page or Geofarm
Responsive IDX is our Home Junction plugin for adding MLS listings to your site. It is a core feature of our realtor sites and it allows users to browse, filter, and save their favorite MLS listings. You can add Responsive IDX to a page or to a Geofarm.
Adding Responsive IDX to a Page
