Prime Location is designed to be used with or without IDX. This guide will cover setting it up with Equity IDX widgets, but can be replaced with alternative widgets. Where applicable we have noted alternatives. If using IDX, make sure you have activated IDX features in the theme.

Home Lead

You will need to create a custom Map Search widget in the IDX Broker Dashboard with your search parameters. * This requires an IDX Broker Platinum account or a Turn Key site. For more info on how to create a map search widget refer to the Widget – Map Search IDX Broker knowledge base article.
Alternatively, we’ve included the Soliloquy Slider in the child theme plugins folder to use in place of a map search widget.
