Execute short IDX code

Building a wordpress real estate website and using the idxpress plugin. I want the IDX shortcode below to auto execute on the index.php in the main content area.

Right now the code just displays as text. That same line of code executes and displays Property Listings on the Agent pages; they have the Text Editor Toolbar and IDX buttons for encoding this code snippet. But the index.php is not an editable Page in the PAGE menu.

[idx-listings city="Laguna Beach" propertytypes="1030" orderby="DateAdded" orderdir="DESC" count="12" showlargerphotos="true"] 

how do I execute this short IDX code?


The do_shortcode() function is what you would want to use.
