Adding a Searchable page

A Rover full page is created using one simple shortcode - [rover_idx_full_page]. This shortcode automatically builds:

  • a search panel
  • a results area to display listings matching your search selections
  • a sidebar to display types of listings, for instance, New and Updated listings.

A Rover IDX full page can be customized any way you want, but we do provide a few templates to get you started.
