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.
Don't Scrub Areas
One of the seven options available in that Listings section is the Don't Scrub Areas setting. It is set to 'Yes' by default and it is strongly recommended that you leave it set to 'Yes'.
When this is set to 'Yes' it tells kvCORE's system to look for misspelled or similar sounding locations and group them together under a main location that is widely used.
For example, say that a listing agent adds a new property to your MLS, but is typing a bit too quickly and misspells "Albuquerque" as "Albequerque". kvCORE can tell that the city was misspelled and will display that listing as a result when a visitor searches the correct name even though it does not match exactly.
If you change this website setting to 'No' then that misspelled location will be treated as a separate city from "Albuquerque" and visitors will need to purposely search for that misspelling in order to find that particular listing.
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!
