Just a little update. I discovered a company here in Vancouver that has really integrated/meshed together the template/IDX concept into monthly packages specifically for realtors. Check it out at www.realtyninja.com. Crunchbase did an article on them here http://www.crunchbas...any/realtyninja
I searched through my stuff and found 2 sites I saved as favs from old research. Wordpress has a plugin for IDX. I think I read the activation for the plugin is with a user code given to the realtor for their own site.
And your right Pete, everyone shares the same live data feeds. For example, five realtors can show and sell the same target listings for a given location area, regardless of what company and realtor has it listed or for sale. I also read somewhere that after 3 impressions on a single property triggers a event (a popup box)offering the viewer to get more info on properties(by email, I think) in the same area of like-kind. Thereby placing them into the database as a client to work with through the system with target specific information streamed automatically, as a feed. I think they can request more info, a call back, chat message, etc. immediately.
Just a little more to chew on...I am going to contact some realtors I know and see what info I can get to aid this.
I am interested in integrating IDX(Internet Data Exchange) for the Real Estate Multiple Listing Service into PW for realtor websites. Wordpress has such premium($$$) templates available but (having been a realtor years ago and more recently a realtors administrative assistant) I would like to offer such a set of templates built on a better framework-PW(!) which the realtors can easily upload, update, etc...self-manage. I just finished a website using processwire based off the included template to learn PW better and I love it! My desire is to offer sets of templates for real estate agent clients requiring websites with the IDX. My limited knowledge of code restrict my ability to do this on my own. So I want to know if anyone has an idea if;
1- Could this be best achieved by a module?
2- How much is entailed for such a project?
Any/all suggestions from the PW community will be most helpful...

It's been a while since I have been here. It's nice to be back! Built a couple sites with PW on my server but got distracted with other CMS sites requiring attention for clients...
I have a couple questions;
I downloaded PW 2.2(latest version) and found certain includes requiring a password so I bypassed to get the bulk of content download on my computer. How do I get the extras? Whom do I chat with about password for extras, or are they even required? Maybe this is dealt with in another area of forum to clarify. Secondly, what is the cost of the form builder Ryan? It look amazingly versatile and a highly valuable addition! By the way, if I remember correctly from last year, you and I share the same birthday Oct.16th! PW has come a long way over the past year. I'm back to stay!!!
