I am setting up Winning Agent with IDXBroker. I am curious if anyone has any good tips for customizing the search widget and featured listings widget within IDXBroker to work well with Winning Agent?
Also, one of the reasons I purchased this theme is that it leads you to think that it has built in styles that integrate with IDXBroker… but so far I have not found anything that leads me to see it is any different from any other them in this regard. Could anyone tell me what parts are optimized for this?
Thanks! I appreciate your help!

I also thought this theme was built to integrate with IDX Broker Platinum and am very surprised to see that now there is another $99 fee for those styles. I don’t see any part optimized for it. I’ve added the widgets and all of them will need to be re-styled, they look terrible as is.

Sorry to be late to the party – just seeing this. The theme is styled to work with IDX Broker search results (you can see the CSS included in the stylesheet) and with AgentPress listings.
In the theme demo, we show off the AgentPress listings search widget as a standard free plugin option to work with the theme.
If you want to use an IDX search widget it does require additional styles. Because those styles are customized on a per-user basis (both for the IDX, and the specific search fields an agent wants), it was not feasible to provide all of those potential variations in the stylesheet. We weren’t originally planning to offer the “search bar” solution for $99, but after customers gave us the feedback they wanted that assistance, we made that option available. For the $99 you get a hand-coded solution specific to your site. For folks not familiar with CSS or not wanting to bother, it’s an inexpensive solution for an integral component of a real-estate site.
@aetherdesign, the basic thing you’ll need to do to style a vertically based form into a horizontal layout is use apply a
float: leftto each field (or preferably a wrapping div) in the search form and then apply a
display: inline-blockto the entire form.

I’ve integrated IDXBroker into my winningagent theme, but I’ve found there is no reason to use the AgentPress plugin now. I rather just 3 featured properties from the IDX on my home page.
How can I do that? Do I have to add the IDXBroker wordpress plugin? Will that give the same look as the agentpress widget?
