    It’s great to see the new Omni-search widget options added!

    One thing that confused me is the live search does not work for address and listing ID, only for city, county and zip. Because it has live search for city, county and zip, I think many users will expect it has live search fully supported and should also work for address and listing ID (as it does for the main sites like zillow, trulia, etc).

    I’d like to recommend full live search support, to include address and listing ID.

    Thanks for the continued improvements!

    The omni search doesn’t have any live searching. It auto suggests from city, county and zip lists provided via the IDX Broker API.

    A full live search would be possible only if there was a way to secure that no other sites could preform the query.

    From my testing I am seeing the omni bar work with listing ID and address. Sometimes the address wont work correctly if a street direction is used however.

    Are you referring to something else?

    Hey Tom,

    Antonio set it straight for me. I misunderstood how it works. I thought the all search options would auto suggest, but only the City, County and Zip do.

    Listing ID and Address work, but they don’t popup suggestions like they do on Zillow, etc.
