OPTIMA EXPRESS & OMNIPRESS
When you install the Optima Express plugin, several links are generated than you can use to display IDX content on your site. These look like regular WordPress pages, but are dynamically generated. Visitors to your website can access these pages if you link to them on your site.
The IDX pages that are currently available are:
Map Search (If included in your package)
Property Organizer Login
Email Alerts Sign Up
List of Saved Searches (toppicks)
Home Valuation Form
Sold Featured Listings
You can access your IDX pages within your wordpress dashboard.
Dashboard > Optima Express > IDX Pages
How do I use my IDX Pages
The most common way to used your IDX Pages is add links to your WordPress Menu.
You can add navigation links to your IDX pages by accessing Appearance > Customize within your WordPress dashboard. From there, access the Navigation section and under the Primary Menu option, choose Optima Express and save.
You can also copy/paste individual IDX page URL's into your existing menu. To locate the IDX page URL's for copying, navigate to Optima Express > IDX Pages in your WordPress dashboard.

Editing the content of IDX Pages
Since the IDX pages are dynamically generated, you can not edit them like other WordPress pages. There are several options for adding search and listings to WordPress pages using shortcode. See more about shortcode here
The Optima Express IDX Pages are dynamically generated on the fly using the WordPress rewrite API, and therefore do not exist in the WordPress database. With the IDX pages being dynamically generated in this way, your WordPress site will not need to contain a page for each of the tens of thousands of listing provided by your board.
Even though the IDX pages do not actually exist in WordPress like a traditional page or post, they are full indexable on your domain, and are styled by the theme template assigned to the IDX page.
It is important to note that the IDX Pages are preconfigured in this way to stay compliant with your board’s IDX display policy. By using these pages, you can be assured that your website will always stay compliant with your board’s policies.
