What is this plugin for?

This plugin makes it possible to show data from IMDB Movie Database using the movie ID with a BBCode.

As far as I know many users were looking for a plugin something like this which pulls data from IMDB and shows directly in the post.

This plugin uses a script which is contributed under GPL. However, a big part of the system was rewritten and a lot of coding were done to integrate both systems.

Plugin Pulls these movie information:
- Contry (Lite)
- Genre (Lite)
- Time (Lite)
- Language (Lite)
- Director (Lite)
- Cast (Advanced Version)
- Description (Advanced Version) (Extended)
- IMDB Score (Advanced Version)
- Thumbnail Picture (Advanced Version) (Now larger picture avaliable for Advanced Version)
-Trailer Link (Advanced Version)
- Advanced control of style, language and dimension. (Advanced Version)


Included in the zip file under "Documentation"

How To Use

You simple copy the part at the end of the IMDB link and copy after the tt letters the IMDB ID and write it between the tags.

Example: you copy 0468569 and write it between two tags like this : [IMDB]0468569[/IMDB]

Common Mistakes With This Plugin:
- Your host must have the allow_url_open option set as OPEN or ON.
- Images and cache folder's CHMOOD must set to 777 ( Files and Subfolders )
- The Format of usage is [IMDB]0468569[/IMDB] not [IMDB]tt0468569[/IMDB] or [IMDB][/IMDB]

Credits and Notes:
- Part of the plugin was written under GPL.
- Special Thanks to Melih BŁyŁk who made this plugin work.
- Thanks to salusoft of showing his modification of the plugin. I benefit from his style to make some changes.
-Bug reports, suggestions that would help improve this plugin are always welcome.

A while back, IMDB disabled remote linking and I'm not even sure they use an API anymore, or use a different one. But this hasn't been working for some time.
