Note: You should work with a qualified web designer to help you integrate the IDX pages into your website. Knowledge of HTML/CSS and access to your website’s source code is required.

2. Add Your Website Branding

NOTE: If you will be using frameset/iframe integration, skip this step (do not apply HTML branding) and refer to our iframe integration guide for Optima IDX. 

 

Optima IDX pages are hosted separately from your website. Add your branding in order for these pages to display your website’s navigation and design.

Go to Setup > Design & Branding > Branding, paste your Header & Footer HTML in the fields provided, and then click Submit Changes. Your branding will then appear on all of your IDX pages.
