Seems to be an issue with an adavanced search with IDX Broker integrated into my site. Tech support told me to add some code from this page http://www.idxbroker.com/support/kb/questions/249/Adding+jQuery+to+a+Global+or+Page+Wrapper
but I'm not sure where or how. Any ideas?March 24, 2014 at 8:48 pm #96503
Please share a link to your website and also to a page where the issue is located.

Can you be more specific about what your issue is on this page? You haven't describe what's wrong with the page or how it's functioning.

This is what IDX Broker e-mailed to me. Some of their fields are not showing up on the Advanced Search page so they directed me to insert code into the <head> tags, which I'm not sure where that would be (or be equivalent to) in a WordPress theme.

Go to your Dashboard. Then go to Genesis > Theme Settings. Scroll down and you will see two boxes - one marked Header the other Footer. Place your code in the Header box and Save.

@[email protected] For SEO purposes it's not good to use script for such pages. Have you installed the IDX Broker WordPress plugin? If you haven't do that first.
Then create a new page add a title and description for your advanced search on the SEO settings and add this code on the page:
<div id="idxStart"></div> <div id="idxStop"></div>
Go back to your IDX Broker Dashboard, select the advanced search page and use DYNAMIC wrapper instead of the static Global.
Your advanced search page now will be indexed by Google with its own title and description instead of a duplicate generic page... which is the case when using the Global static wrapper.
Repeat the above step of using DYNAMIC wrapper for all the pages that you want to create. (results, details, gallery, contact, city pages, etc.)
Another benefit of using dynamic wrappers is that you can also add any content above or below the code that I show you above and most important the pages automatically update if you make any changes to your sidebar, footer, etc.March 25, 2014 at 2:09 pm #96645
Sorry, forgot the mention that on the IDX Broker Dashboard when you are asked the site the DYNAMIC wrapper will use, you need to enter the new page's url that you created. For example:
www.mysite.com/advanced-searchMarch 25, 2014 at 2:25 pm #96647
Just noticed that you are not using the custom subdomain option to get the SEO credit for your site, Nothing of what I said above will work before you create a subdomain and redirect the default IDX Broker site to your own site.
Follow the instructions here to do that.March 26, 2014 at 5:06 am #96699
Thanks sdbroker. For this particular account, I'm using the standard IDX Broker option rather than Platinum so I have to use the Global HTML Wrapper (no options for Dynamic) but it does have a WordPress include which is what I'm using. Also, you are right about the sub-domain. That is in progress. Thanks for your help.
