We are constantly looking to improve the way we display listing information at IDX Broker, and the latest template for our search results pages is an exciting new take on how to make your pages stand out. Expanding on our Mobile First template, Home Atlas is a mobile responsive results page template that will clearly display listings alongside a map with pins for each listing displayed in the results. This page layout will clearly display listings in a stylish way on desktop computers as well as mobile devices.
With Home Atlas, clicking on a map pin will automatically scroll the property into view and highlight it for the user, making it easy to find the property they are looking for. In addition, when a user clicks the heart icon on the listing panel, it will save the listing in their My Listing Manager account if they are already signed in as a lead. If they do not have a lead account with you, they will be asked to create an account with using the sign-up form in the IDX Broker system. For more information on how to adjust the signup form, please click here.
To change your pages to the Home Atlas template, log into the IDX control panel and go to Designs -> Pages, then click the Edit link in the Layout column for your Results pages to adjust the page layout. On that page, click Activate underneath the Home Atlas template and your Results pages will update immediately.
