Wordpress Themes - WP Forum at BFA
There will be no more development for Atahualpa (or any other theme), and no support. Also no new registrations. I turned off the donation system. I may turn the forum to read only if it gets abused for spam. Unfortunately I have no time for the forum or the themes. Thanks a lot to the people who helped in all these years, especially Larry and of course: Paul. Take care and stay healthy -- Flynn, Atahualpa developer, Sep 2021

[SOLVED] place start and stop tags around main content area.

Hello, I am using IDX broker to incorporate real estate data from my MLS.

Synchronization tags tell IDX Broker how to extract the header and footer from my blog in order to automatically integrate my blog design into the IDX pages.

They say I need to place my start tag right after the opening div tag for the main content area of me theme, and I want to place the stop tag right before the closing div of the main content area. They that the opening and closing divs are usually in the index file, but may be in the header and footer files for some themes.

I cannot find any div tags, and everwhere in this forum I read that I should not change any of the files.

I am using ATA 3.5.3 and wp 3.0.1

Any help would be appreciated.

www.realtornathan.com is the site I am working on.

Atahyalpa doesn't have an opening <div> tag in the center area because the center area is a table. However you can add one in at ATO->Style & edit CENTER COLUMN and you probably want to add the plugin code above and below the loop there.

Thanks for the reply. Is there anywhere in particular I should place the tags:

<?php echo idx_start(); ?>
<?php echo idx_stop(); ?>
I have tried to put them everyone I can think of, and I just keep getting an error. Do I need to add div tags, or can I just place the start/stop tags?

I hope this is not a bother, but I have been working at this all morning to no avail and my content provider will not provide support on theme-specific tagging.

Thanks again

I entered the following two lines BEFORE any other code in the before loop area:

<div id="entrycontent">
<?php echo idx_start(); ?>
and the following to lines AFTER any other code in the below loop area:

<?php echo idx_stop(); ?>
Thanks to juggledad and Rosie at IDXBroker for the help.


idx broker, start tag, stop tag, synchronization tags
