Add IDX search to website

You can easily frame the MLS listings into your Point2 Agent website. This will allow your website visitors to browse the MLS while still within your Point2 website. In order to frame the MLS listings, please follow these simple steps: 

Note: You will first need to contact your local MLS board to obtain an IDX frameable link. Please be advised that some websites do not allow for framing. You may want to check with your local MLS to make sure that their site does support framing.

The MLS Search page has already been added to your website and is currently set to a hidden status. The following steps will allow you to activate the IDX display as well as make the page visible.

  • Sign in to your Point2 Account at www.point2.com
  • Click Websites from the top menu
  • Click Agent Site
  • Click Edit next to the site you want to edit
  • Use the Pages drop down menu to locate the Search MLS page 
  • Click Edit IDX Listing display
  • You will now be prompted to enter the URL address for your IDX link (which you have obtained from your local MLS)
  • You have the option of 2 display types:
    1) IDX Panel which opens your listings within the same screen
    2) Link to New IDX Window which displays your MLS Listings in a different window 
  • Select or unselect the Registration required box (If you check the Registration box, your website visitors will need to fill out a brief registration form the first time they access the section) 
  • Click OK

Now you will need to go back and make the page visible:

  • While you're in the Edit area of your website click Manage Website at the top
  • Click Edit Menu
  • Locate the MLS listings page that you've been working 
  • Click on the page and drag it up to the menu you want it in
