Disable Location Search for IDX and Portals

Location Search allows users to grab locations from pre-defined MLS fields, MLS numbers, Street Addresses
and custom “Map Overlays” defined by the user in advance. If one of the fields you are looking for is not in the
criteria list it is possible that it is apart of the Location Search Box.

To disable this and bring those fields to the search form, go to Preferences — General Preferences.

Uncheck “Enable Location Searching (one box) on all my IDX links and Portals”
