Getting Started with Omnipress

Getting Started

After you've signed up for a trial or paid account, your confirmation page will provide a link to your site as well as a link to your WordPress Admin.

If you have a paid account, you'll receive an email with instructions on how to proceed with IDX approval. Until you receive approval, your site will be live with demo listings while you get your site ready.
 

If your site uses a non-Divi theme (Fresh, Graphite, Streamline, Sleek, Modern, Panorama, or Luxe), please follow the instructions here.

Changing OmniPress Styles

Change your site's navigation, colors, look and feel -- or simply reset it to the defaults -- by changing your OmniPress style. This allows you to switch between the Marin, Portside, Impact, Horizon and Elegance options easily. In the WordPress Dashboard, navigate to Divi > OmniPress Styles and select your color and style. Your logo and site information will be retained. If you should wish to keep your existing homepage, you can access it in the Pages menu and revert to the previous saved version.


Building Custom Pages & Content

Create entire new pages, or add content to existing pages using the Divi Builder. For details on how to use it, refer to the Getting Started With Divi Builder Guide.

 

Pre-defined Layouts

Your OmniPress site comes with pre-defined layouts for common pages used on a real estate site. Access them through the Divi Builder by clicking Load From Library. There you can load templates like Communities, Testimonials or Service Providers into the page. You should then use your own content to customize the modules that have been added to the page. 


Custom Domain Name

Once your site is active, you can use your pre-existing domain, or sign up for a free domain (e.g. www.yourdomain.com). For more information about using a custom domain with with OmniPress, view our Custom Domain Setup article.
