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.

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*

You are unreal mate,if you dont know were it is from that url you need to lay off the amber nectar.....Your attitude is well out of order..

Guys listen up! I totally forgot to mention that your host has to have the allow_url_fopen = on

Other than that I could not see why some of the users can not this plugin get working.

Thankyou, I didnt think I was being disrespectful to the coder far from it. I have invested a good few hours this morning, trying to get this wonderful hack to work.

Please guys, do not fight over this. I did not feel anything wrong whith Timber's words.So please calm down. As I posted before your host must have the allow_url_fopen = on set open.

Please aware this is actually one of the most important thing to get this thing working.

My immediate concern is the security risk imposed.

http://phpsec.org/projects/phpsecinf...url_fopen.html

Could CURL be a safer bet ?

Well it would not cause a huge security risk to a/your servers security. Most of the server owners disable this option beacuse of the low usage, need thats all. I personally disable a feature if I'm not using it...

Using curl is another option, but it would increase the servers load and slow the page down. So I prefered allow_url_fopen option.

Adjust the link in the 'idmb' template

by adjusting that link I finally have some live in this add-on, it projects the movie info but on top of the iframe box in my posting I get the following error:

Warning: mysql_fetch_row(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in [path]/imdb.php on line 17

Did you checked the topic? I made some changes yesterday . I checked it on a live forum ( 8.2.x ) and verified it works.

Really have no clue why you couldn't get it work.
