Rover IDX for Wordpress

Up and running in minutes

Activate Rover IDX, choose the MLS region, and add the [rover_idx_full_page] shortcode to a page. Boom - your site is displaying searchable real estate listings. You can then customize what cities are offered for search, what the search panel looks like, what the listing layout looks like, and how the property details page is displayed.

Unbelievable levels of customization

Out of the box, Rover IDX just works. You do not need to know html, css, or php. Further, Rover offers many listing layout templates to choose from, so you can customize your listings with a click. You can also customize the search panel with drag and drop efficiency. If you do want to get into the nitty gritty, you can create your own layout templates - and we offer basic templates to get you started.


Maps can be integrated into [rover_idx_full_page] as a dynamic search experience. Define locations (towns, counties, subdivisions) via polygons, and allow visitors to search by clicking on these defined locations.


Rover IDX has an optional CRM, used to track and organize your leads. See the searches / properties visitors have viewed. Add Notes and Todo's. Keep a follow up calendar.

WordPress Widgets

Add straightforward widgets for Quick Search, Ask a Question, Featured Listings, Quick Links, and Mortgage and Affordability Calculators.

Conveniently Add Shortcodes

Within the Wordpress visual editor, Rover IDX offers a add-a-shortcode button with the kitchen sink of parameters. Just adjust the parameters you care about, and remove or ignore the rest. Rover IDX shortcode guide

Unbelievable SEO

All Rover IDX pages are SEO friendly. Clean urls, and there are no iframes or subdomains. Rover IDX also adds structured data where appropriate. All the property detail pages are in your domain, and Googlebot will find them. And Rover IDX maintains a sitemap of all the active listings represented by your website, and the various crawlers are updated every 24 hours with that updated sitemap.

Mobile friendly

All Rover IDX pages are mobile friendly, as long as the Wordpress theme you've chosen is also mobile friendly. Rover IDX has a Mobile settings page that allows you to tune mobile behavior.

CSS Frameworks

By default, Rover IDX creates beautiful pages. If your site is already using Bootstrap, or you would like Rover to create it's elements using Bootstrap, simply choose 'Bootstrap' in the CSS Framework section of the Styling >> Quick Start page.
