Wovax will set this up for you, but we will need the following for you:

  1. Install and activate the Wovax plugins.
  2. Send the RETS Login URL, username, and password sent to you by the MLS board to  If you do not have one or are unsure about this step, please contact us, and we will help out with this process.

We will then begin to translate and import the data to our database and then to your site.  Depending on the size of the board and how many clients we already have on the board, this process may take up to two weeks to complete.

Install a Theme

We built our themes to work seamlessly with the Wovax plugins. If you use your own theme, it may require additional CSS to integrate visually with the plugins. 

To install a theme:

  1. Go to Appearance > Themes.
  2. Wovax’s themes are built on the Genesis Framework.  If you do not see Genesis Framework in Appearance > Themes, install the genesis-base-theme.[version-number].zip theme before installing a Wovax theme.  
  3. Return to Appearances > Themes and click on the Add New button at the top.
  4. Click the Upload Theme button (top).
  5. Choose the .zip file for one of our themes or drag it to the Choose File button.  The .zip file was attached to your introductory email from Wovax.  If you cannot find it, please contact us at  
  6. Go to Appearance > Themes and select the theme.  

If you want to view configuration settings, request access to “Sandbox” accounts where we have set up and configured the different themes.  Please e-mail
