We have had a lot of people over the years ask about how to make their IDX Broker pages look like the Houzez WordPress theme. In the past it required several hours of billable customizations, but now you can get a layout that matches your theme for free!
Introducing the Houses IDX Broker details page for Houzez theme
One of the challenges of buying a WordPress theme from Themeforest like Houzez, is that the custom layouts are hard to replicate with your IDX listings.
This is because the theme authors spent a lot of time styling and designing what in the WordPress-world is known as a "Custom Post Type" or CPT. These CPT layouts are really nice, but they have one HUGE drawback..... they have to be updated manually.
Now you can use our Houses design on your IDX Broker details pages to make your IDX pages match the layout on your Houzez template website.
How does the Houses IDX details page work?
Unlike the WordPress Custom Post Type we mentioned above, this is an actual IDX Broker Details page template. It will work on any WordPress site, or any WIX, SquareSpace, Weebly, PureIDX or other platform.
We use the templating engine that IDX Broker shares with their developer partners to build a truly custom details page in IDX Broker that has a nice layout to match your Houzez theme pages.
One tricky part of this is that Houzez actually has a handful of different page layouts, so this design is really made to be generic in the sense that it will work in a variety of websites. Here is an example on a PureIDX website:
What if I don't use the Houzez theme on WordPress? Can I still use the Houses details page?
You can use the Houses IDX details page on any WordPress theme. The layout will stay pretty similar to the layout shown above.
