    Hey guys, so I know you offer ?bare and ?mobile for viewing pages. It would be nice to have some small icon buttons for each of these on the list of pages (/mgmt/pages.php) in middleware.

    it’s typically been the ?bare is something idx tries to keep under it’s hat from retail clients since with that url variable you could conceivably bypass the wrapper and iframe idx pages into multiple sites and violate the TOS. i doubt they’ll be eager to put it in button form in the mw.

    idxforge is probably right. At best this enhancement would be low priority. I like auto appending since if when I am trouble shooting I will need to refresh the page so I made a browser extension in Chrome: https://github.com/antonioortegajr/append-questionmark-mobile-extention/tree/master/chrome_extention

    Hmm, I like the chrome extension. Expanding on that it would be great if the extension did the following:

    * Display an IDX icon in the address bar when on an IDX Broker page. Maybe on hover can show details such as if its original, lite or platinum?
    Similar to how this extension does for WordPress

    * Offer a quick menu button to enable/disable the auto append for ?bare and ?mobile.

    Cool that you like it. It’s github so shoot an issue or a pull request or fork it. I think it full fills the need, although I agree it could be cooler. Of course if anyone else wants to fork or other github fun feel free, but this is NOT an IDX Broker project so please do it in github. It’s a spare time fun thing.

    Since the chrome extension was created is this thread good to close?

    I think its still a valid request, as some users don’t use chrome. I think there is still a valid argument to have these troubleshooting features appear in middleware. While IDX Forge had a point, I don’t think the majority of real estate agents are going to catch on to that fact. If they do IDX Broker can always suspend accounts when needed.
