Have q question, when a user does a search on our site, westvalleyrealestate.co  How do we get notified that they registered? I have tested it and it doesn't notify us in anyway or show up in our Zillow CRM either.

@Cinda - registrations should go into your Zillow CRM. I just registered on your site, and from the Zillow admin side it looks like my contact info is in your CRM. Not sure why it didn't work when you tested it. Were you logged into your Zillow account or website at the time? If so, it's possible the system knew it was you and so didn't put it into the CRM.

Please let me know if you aren't seeing me in your CRM.

Thanks Jay, I do see you in my CRM now but have one more question, is there any way that I can set it up to get an email or some sort of notification that a new user has registered?

Jay, I'm trying to set up a site and sent in my IDX info, but nothing back from anyone yet confirming I can complete set up.  Also, is this powerful enough to replace my current website?  If so, I really want to do that!  Thanks, Jennifer

@Cinda - I thought emails were sent out when someone was added to the CRM (and text messages too). I'll have to look into that when I get back in the office on Monday.

@Jennifer - Howdy! Long time no talk to! It looks like we're waiting to hear back from RMLS. They have to approve the IDX feed. From what I can see it was submitted to them on June 7. Some MLS's approve very quickly, some not-so-swiftly. I've heard of some taking 2 or 3 weeks (most nowhere near that long). I'm not familiar with how long RMLS usually takes, but I'd give it a few more days.

As for the power of the sites, it really depends on what you want to do with it. You can add all the content you want, and the IDX is very feature rich. But if you are looking to do a lot of customization (like adding plugins, editing PHP and CSS files) then this isn't the solution. What site are you thinking about replacing?

Jay,

After getting my website up and running, I have one suggestion that would really help.  The map widgent that is inserted into the web page needs to function like the map searc on the actually Zillow website.  Once you scroll out of the starting location, the map does not update...

You should be getting an email from Zillow when someone signs in. If you cant figure it out check with your rep they have had  good tech support.

@Marcus - just so I understand, you are looking to to have a *second* Premier Agent Website? 

If so, I think that's correct. There is no way (that I am aware of) to have two websites associated with one account. I'll try to verify that in the morning.

Contact form seems broken:

If the contact form is filled out with out an e-mail address the contact is not forwarded to my agent hub contact list. The form it self does not warn or force people to leave their e-mail, so when they click submit they have no idea their contact info (name/phone) did not get submitted.

Also, I don't receive an e-mail when a contact is added.  I do get a text.

Javad - from the dashboard, click on "settings". There you will see a box to enter the Google Analytics ID. Copy/past the ID (and JUST the ID, not all the code Google gives you) into that box and click "Save Changes". 

ID looks like UA-XXXXX-X  and there is a link on that settings page that will help you find the code if you are not seeing it.

That will track the entire site.

Hi Stephanie - Really nice chatting with you this morning! 

As we discussed, there appears to be a bug in the contact form that does not send you info if a user fails to enter their email address. I just sent that to the development team with top priority, I'm sure they'll jump on it.

I also sent the other items we discussed.

Thanks!

I down loaded a few pics but I can't get them to go to the opening page. I'm in Pigeon Forge and the pic looks like Miami. Help please

Shirley - 

Have you gone to the dashboard --> Appearance --> Homepage Slideshow?

From there, you can click on "edit" on any of the home page slides and then click on the photo to upload and change the pic.

Ok everything is back up.

I am trying to add some IDX searches to my site.  I don't have any issues with setting up general seaches filtering zip codes.

My issue is I can't produce searchs when filtering for, Rentals/Commercial, or just about any other group.  I also tried to filter by property types.  I used single words or phrases like pool, water view, beach rights.  The link below is for several zip codes, just filtering for "pool".  Am I doing something wrong?


http://www.stephaniegalka.com/idx/?idx-q-PropertyFeatures%3C0%3E=pool&idx-q-ZipCodes%3C0%3E=11901&idx-q-ZipCodes%3C1%3E=11933&idx-q-ZipCodes%3C2%3E=11931&idx-q-ZipCodes%3C3%3E=11947


Here is a link to one of many that have pools in this area:

@Javad,
The Premier Agent Website is a template based website. It doesn't play well with custome html code. To add one our pre-made widgets go to your website dashboard>appearance>widgets.

@Stepahnie
I'm seeing MLS search results on your website. Are you still having set up issues?

@Rachel.

Thanks for taking a look.  My MLS search has been working fine.  From what I can tell the filters work fine as well.

In my previous post I left two links.  One link was generated thru the MLS search on my web site where I filtered the property feature for "pool".  Which worked as intended.

The issue however in when I try to use the  "Listings Page Builder" to generate a custom URL.  The link below was created with the "Listings Page Builder" only filtering for the property filter for "pool".  As you can see, no listings shown.

http://www.stephaniegalka.com/idx/?idx-q-PropertyFeatures%3C0%3E=pool&idx-q-ZipCodes%3C0%3E=11901&idx-q-ZipCodes%3C1%3E=11933&idx-q-ZipCodes%3C2%3E=11931&idx-q-ZipCodes%3C3%3E=11947
