Info:
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.

Features:
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)

Installation

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: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0468569/ 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]http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0468569/[/IMDB]


Credits and Notes:
- Part of the plugin was written under GPL.
- Special Thanks to Melih Büyük 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.

Im sorry but Nothing, albeit no errors.

What are we looking for ? In terms of bbcode, as it is in editor no imdb.gif is shown, nor in code source
Can't you use it at all ? Did you try to use [imdb]0383574[/imdb]
it for example?

TimberFloor would you please make a screenshot and please PM me your class_bbcode.php file.

Note: Here is where the imdb.gif used:

Nope, still doesn't work.

imdb.gif doesn't display in the editor box. I tried [imdb]0383574[/imdb], but I get this error:
Failed to Connect
Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at localhost.

No gif ( perhaps path is incorrect in editor_toolbar_on )

Can you also explain why people would use 05674687 as a imdb code ?
Surely this should/be better if it was like:

[imdb]Star Wars[/imdb]

Put the imdb.gif into your own style's editor directory.

I prefered to use the ID insead the name. Otherwise It would be confusing because there are films which have nearly the same name. ID is much more reliable.

Totally disagree with the last sentence, as most of our users, would happily wish to share films with online friends, but not necessarily wish to go onto imdb site to get the films code.

Will try changing the path

Well mate, are you planning to share the IMDB TAG Code with other ones? I do not see the point here by doing that.

Plus, it is always a possible that you write the film name wrong or remember it not right. At that point the TAG will parse the ID wrong and you have to it all over again.
It is much more comfortable to search it on imdb and get the id (thats my opinion).


Please follow the instructions again, I certainly hope this is the final one

Thanks LAZ.

I have now totally installed. As per new instructions.

NO GOOD im afraid.

Now TOTALLY UNINSTALLED.

I think perhaps, in Turkey you get a different version of IMDB to us lol

Will reinstall when other english only boards on 3.8.2 have it working, keep up the good work, you will get there.

Also may help to instruct people what to put in the bbcode. As no explanation doesnt actually help.

Most films we look at on IMDB > are listed as such http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0796366/

Ste * uninstalled for now*

It gets the information from the universal adres, there is no particular adress for the Turkish ones

I made an instruction on the threat at final. If you follow it right you will get it work.
