    I am new to web design and I was just asked to build a site for a realtor. The problem is they want me to have an IDX feed on their site for their MLS and I do not know how to incorporate this. I know HTML, Java, XML, CSS and such can anyone help me out? At least point me ni the right direction?

    Thanks in advance!

    Here's a link for you:

    Code:
    http://www.vrein.com/article/view/13139/1/4228
    On that page, there's a link to a PDF doc with more info (in Section 10) about how to integrate IDX into a web site. It's pretty vague, though. You won't be able to get access to any data samples or code until your realtor has signed some sort of agreement.

    I know the article itself was pretty vague, but did you read the PDF document that was referenced in the article? It explains that in order to get access to data samples (and perhaps code that you can use with your site), the realtor needs to sign an agreement before he/she can get access to the IDX info that you would require to do your part of the project.

    Not knowing how it's all coded makes it difficult to help you any further, so if you do get access to the IDX stuff, feel free to PM me, and maybe I can help you out with the code.
