Saved Link to Widget Tutorial

With the saved link to widget you can convert your saved links into a widget.

Widget Settings

You can configure most of the features, such as the number of listings, the sort by order and the styling.

How to set it up:

1. Choose the saved links you want to convert

Saved Link to Widget Setup Saved Links

The saved links options that the dropdown menu shows are the ones that you have created in your IDX Broker account.

You can find them here:

Saved Links in IDX Broker

2. Type in the number of listings you want the new widget to have

Number of Listings

3. Choose how you want the listings to be sorted

Default is the regular way that the system sorts the listings. You can leave this option or choose "Price Low to High" or "Price High to Low". Whichever option you choose is how the listings in the saved links will be ordered in your website.

4. You can toggle the "Open in a New Tab" on and off as you'd like

If you toggle this on, then the listings will open in a new tab if a user clicks on them.

5. Set a widget theme (optional)

You can add a theme to your widget. You can showcase some examples here

For this example, we will choose the "Houses 15" theme:

Houses 15 theme chosen

After selecting the theme, click on "Show color scheme" to display the available options. You can set the different colors, according to the selected theme. Notice that only some colors will be applied to certain elements, depending on the selected theme. Once you're happy with your selection, click on "Save Color Scheme".

Set a primary theme

If you want to use only one theme (recommended), just select the theme and click on "Set As Primary Theme".

Set Primary Theme

When you select the Primary Theme, you will see this message. You can always change the default theme later.

Note that changing the Default theme will not change the theme your website widgets are already using. This setting is used only for making it easy for you to find the theme you used before.

6. Select the widget type

You can display the listings in a showcase or in a carousel. The default option is showcase.
