IDX Blogger adds some special capability to WordPress, most importantly the ability to geolocate the post onto your special maps, the Blog Post map and the Search Listings map. There are different ways that you can have your IDX Blogger setup in order for your clients to interact with your blog content. The pages listed below are all created about
“Blog Posts” Map: The Blog Posts map shows the map of your metro area with all of your geocoded blog posts. Note that this map does not show listings, and does not show blog posts without a location. In order for a blog post to display on this map, it must be geocoded. Click here to see how to geocode your posts.
“Search Listings” Map: This map contains BOTH the listings from the MLS, as well as any blog post that you have geocoded. This is the map that your clients will spend the most time on, and this map is the only location listings will appear. If you feel that having your geocoded blog posts appear both on the Search Listings map, and the Blog Posts map is redundant or confusing, you may hide the blog posts map.

“Recent Posts” page: This page does not contain a map, and will display your blog posts in reverse chronological order just like a any other standard blog on the internet. This page displays all of your blog posts, including the posts that have not been geolocated. This is useful if you would like to just show off your blog content without a map interface.
