How to add your RealBird mobile website to your ActiveRain post

Well, that may sound like a confusing objective, that is, adding your mobile real estate website as an embedded widget in your ActiveRain post, but as of today and as a "by-product" of our weekend compatibility update, you can now do exactly that. In fact, it is a pretty cool "by-product" if you ask us.

The compatibility update that we launched for the RealBird mobile real estate websites now renders the pages correctly on all major desktop browsers including Internet Explorer 7 and higher (besides all the major smartphones of course). It means that you can now freely embed your mobile website into web pages that are intended for desktop audience. Great way to provide a preview and also the corresponding QR code that can be scanned by your visitors to bookmark your listings on their mobile phone.

Below is an example (courtesy of Katerina Gasset):

Scan me with your smartphone to bookmark
our mobile website at http://WellingtonFLHomes.RealBird.com

The iframe code:

<iframe src="http://WellingtonFLHomes.RealBird.com" width="95%" height="500" style="width: 95%; height: 500px;"></iframe><center>Scan me with your smartphone to bookmark<br/>our mobile website at <a href="http://WellingtonFLHomes.RealBird.com" target="_blank">http://WellingtonFLHomes.RealBird.com</a><br/><img src="http://chart.apis.google.com/chart?cht=qr&choe=UTF-8&chld=L|0&chs=140x140&chl=http://wellingtonflhomes.realbird.com/" style="border:0px;"></center> 

Replace the highlighted vanity subdomain with your own RealBird subdomain and paste it into your ActiveRain post via the HTML tab of the editor. It's that simple.

Current features of the RealBird mobile real estate websites:

  • Optimized for all major smartphones and tablets (iOS, Android, Blackberry, Palm, Windows Phone and more)
  • It is now optimized for all major desktop browsers as well (IE, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera)
  • Shows all your active, pending, sold listings and provides an easy way for your visitors to request more information from you via the smartphone
  • Comes with its own vanity city domain name
  • Comes with its own QR code that you can download or even order as very low cost printed stickers right from your RealBird account
  • Shows your ActiveRain or other blog's feed in the "Real Estate News" section
  • Future updates (GPS, search etc.) will be automatically added to your service and all embedded widgets will be automatically updated as well
Thanks and enjoy !

Forgive me, but what in the world does this mean?  I am searching and searching for where to plug the HTML in and I don't have any idea what this means.  Do I add that code every time I blog or is there somewhere to addit to my profile?

HELP!

Hi Amy,

Sorry for the late reply. There is now a code generator in the RealBird member area for this. You can just log in and copy and paste your own code. 

Thanks
