How do I code use realestate.com.au javascript widgets to display property listings?

I need to embed javascript into joomla articles to display property listings I am not sure how to use the code they have on this link I have tried copying and pasting it into an article but it shows nothing. I have used their iframes version but that always links back to the realestate.com.au site when the site visitor clicks on a property within the listings, which the client doesn't want, they want it to display the links on their site, so the visitor stays on their site. The javascript version (co-branded) is supposed to be able to do this.

http://webtools.realestate.com.au/configuring-widgets-included-via-javascript/

The client's site is http://munropropertygroup.com.au/

Let me know if you need anything else.

REAWidgetConfig must be defined before the bootstrap script is included.
<script>
var REAWidgetConfig = {
    var REAWidgetConfig = {
    cobrandURL: 'http://munropropertygroup.com.au/'
};
};
</script>
<div class='rea-widget-advanced-search-horizontal'>Find your next property on Australia's No.1 <a href="http://www.realestate.com.au/">Real Estate</a>website - realestate.com.au</div>
<script id="rea-widget-bootstrap" src="http://widgets.realestate.com.au/bootstrap.js"></script>

Open in new window


However, there is more to this that is not documented on their site. Using the above code, you will just get to a "page not found" on your website. You need to have a results page, and I couldn't find that documented anywhere on their website. You may need to ring their tech support for more information on the API.

Thanks yeah it doesn't do what I need it to. You would be correct about contacting them, however I have and they are of no help they said they do not support the widgets at all even though they are documented on their site. They only push their own services which are expensive and not at all user friendly. Thanks again for you help.
