An MLS, or multiple listing service, is a database used for real estate transactions. Real estate agents and brokers often add MLS searches to their sites to let visitors find listings in their area.
If you're in the real estate business, you can add an MLS search to your site using some custom code.
Note: To add MLS search to your site, you should be a member of an IDX service. Some IDX services include Diverse Solutions, IDXBroker, and Displet.
The solution in this guide includes using a Code Block to add advanced code. This is a Premium feature available in the current Website Business plan and higher:
- Available in: All Business and Commerce plans
- Available in: Legacy Personal plan (no longer available for new subscriptions)
- Not available in: Current Personal plan
- Trial: You can use Code Blocks during a trial.

Step 1 - Add a Code Block
Open the editor for the page or post where you'd like your search to appear. Click an Insert Point and select Code from the Block Menu.
For more detailed steps, visit Adding blocks with Insert Points.

Step 2 - Paste the MLS code
Most IDX services provide HTML embed code for adding MLS search to your site.
Find and copy this code from your IDX service and paste it into the Code Block. Click Apply to save your changes.
Here's an example of how an MLS search could appear on your site:
Some IDX services may require additional code that you'll need to add to Code Injection.
