Hi Edward

Please see my reply below:

My question is that if I can use flexmls plugin from wordpress (to pull listings from an MLS) in this theme or if is needed custom work.

—> You must ask the plugin developers if they give you any .xml or .txt or .cvs feed to import in the theme database. But as far as I read, they don’t have that. They work like all plugins from IDX, including dsIDXpress (they import properties, search widgets, shortcodes from the plugin database). This means you have to use plugin design, features, properties and you can’t use the theme features.

—> The theme features are based on the properties added in the theme wp-admin – Properties.

I see that you have support for dsidxpress but It’s not useful for me in this case. If it can be done maybe I don’t know as a custom work or as a public theme functionality, I wait for a feedback, thanks. If it’s custom work how much can it aproximately be the cost, to see if it’s worth it!

The plugin is this: https://wordpress.org/plugins/flexmls-idx/
The flexmls is this: http://wpdemo.flexblogs.flexmls.com/documentation/getting-started/

——> Based on the experience shared by other clients using other IDX plugins the answer is the following:

– You can use another IDX plugin, but the limitations are the same (as explained above) and as explained in this page on our demo http://wpresidence.net/dsidxpress-plugin-how-it-works-in-wp-residence/

—> The only difference from theme side is that for any other IDX plugin (and not dsIDXpress) the theme pack will not populate with the properties from IDX LISTINGS WIDGET.

Hope this explains well.

Thank you
Anna
