There are many options for personalizing your kvCORE website: you can change the color theme, what your front page carousels include, what your menu tabs are titled, and much more.
At the bottom of your list of website settings is a Listings section that allows you to control some aspects of how the listings display on your website. A few of the default options should remain as is, but the majority of them can (and sometimes should) be changed.
Accessing Your Website Settings
- Log into kvCORE.
- Click on the Web & IDX tab on the left.
- Click on the blue "Edit Settings" button.
- Log into kvCORE.
- Click on your email address in the top right-hand corner.
- Click on 'Websites'.
- Search for the subdomain you wish to edit settings for.
- Click on "Site Settings".
TIP: The "Site Overview" button will take you back to the Web & IDX tab.
One of the seven options available is the Coverage Only setting. It is set to 'No' by default and it is strongly recommended you leave it set to 'No'.
When the Implementation Rep set up the kvCORE account that you are a part of, they were provided a list of local counties by your Company Admin. These counties help narrow down the amount of listings that are initially pulled to display on your kvCORE website.
All MLS listings can ultimately be searched, but the website will only load listings within those counties first in order to help improve your website speed.
When 'Coverage Only' is set to 'No' it allows all listings from the MLS board(s) that are associated with your kvCORE account to be searched and displayed on your website as visitors need.
If you change the setting to 'Yes' then it limits the listings allowed to be searched and displayed on your website to ONLY listings that are located within that list of local counties your Company Admin chose.
For example, if you work in Southern California your Company Admin could tell the Implementation Rep to use San Diego County, Orange County, and Riverside County. By default, listings in those three counties would load first, but a visitor could search for and find a property located in nearby Imperial County.
If you change the setting to 'Yes', then a visitor would only be able to search for properties in those three counties. They could not find Imperial County listings even if they searched for one by address or MLS number.
Please Note: If you are interested in finding out which counties are currently being used for your kvCORE account, reach out to your Company or Office Admin; the kvCORE Support team can only provide that information to an authorized user on the account.
If you have any questions about this website setting, please reach out to Customer Support via the blue chat bubble to the right or by emailing email@example.com!
