    I’d like to be able to create a showcase widget that shows featured properties is they are available and only shows MLS listings from other offices if there are no featured properties to show. For example, if I build a showcase widget and set it to show 3 properties and use the following search:

    idxID=a192&pt=1&lp=650000&a_propStatus%5B0%5D=Active&price=650000%2B
    &searchRefinement=fl&amin_photocount=1&fl=y&srt=newest

    … because featured is turned on, (fl=y in the query string above), I only get as many listings as the office has available that fit the other criteria. So, if the office only has 1 listing that fits the criteria, there is only 1 listing in the showcase. And that makes sense, but if I turn off the featured requirement by changing the query string to fl=n, the 1 featured listing gets sorted out of the line up, and I only see listings from other offices.

    However, if I use the same parameters on an actual search page but turn off the featured requirement like so:

    idxID=a192&pt=1&lp=650000&a_propStatus%5B0%5D=Active&price=650000%2B
    &searchRefinement=fl&amin_photocount=1&fl=n&srt=newest

    … I get the office’s 1 featured listing at the top, and the remaining out-of-office listings below that.

    I would like the showcase widget to have the exact same results. That is, show the featured listing first and then show however many out-of-office listings it takes to fill up the rest of the showcase.

    We do have an Enhancement ticket open to change how the widgets function in regards to showing featured listings.

    If in your IDX Dashboard –> (https://middleware.idxbroker.com/mgmt/preferences.php#results) You have it set to show featured on standard results –> Then the widgets will respect that like the results page.

    All new features as they are added will be listed here: http://support.idxbroker.com/customer/en/portal/articles/1951326-new-features?b_id=10433
