Click Install Please.

Only Vb 4.0.x.

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.

Mate, lets say we do a thread.

And put [imdb]tt187728267[/imdb]

Now, if we click PREVIEW thread, it works.

Soon as we publish, it all disappears.

Any suggestions please. ?

Put The ID without tt it should look lite [imdb]187728267[/imdb]

Forgive me asking, did you set the cache and image folder (imdb/cache, imdb/images) to 777 ?

Yes. Now have it working without the TT portion. But ghastly black border around the movie info, can this be removed or iframe resized to remove this?

Plus links of actors, as stated in previous posts, isnt linking to IMDB, but via our website, causing bad links: see image

I think those that have persevered with this and helped bug test should be upgraded to the paid version free of charge

Yeah, Im still of the opinion, that it should work like the youtube mod.

In essence a user should be able to either:

1. click the imdb link, and then type in the film name. And then it retrieves the info from the imdb without the user having to paste the link in.

or.

2. user pastes in the link after clicking the imdb icon, and the script strips the http://imdb.com/tt portion leaving the script to then to work as intended, most of our users would not know to remove the tt part, intuitively.

3. as the youtube mod, but just paste the entire link into a post, and the script, does a total rewrite into this hack, and produces the info as per my image 3 posts up.


It needs to be simplified, and made more user friendly. Lets hope the coder agrees. And can find a work around. My son does a similar thing for www.farkie.com but he is too busy to help, lol

right -o... the file you make the change to add your URL is IMDB, when you search in styles.


original text

http://$bburl/imdb.php?mid=$idfilme

get rid of that $bburl and replace with your www.yoursite.com/forum

it worked for me. That is what was holding me back the past few days. Hope that others can benefit from our frustration with this mod.

I put the changes into the plugin file, you don't have to do it manually. Just reupload the plugin that would solve it.

I got verry tired to say that you propably get even more tired to hear that, but I'm still gonna say it

Please rewiev the template changes on your editor template and make sure you have the imdb.gif icon in the images/editor folder. Give it a try by copying into your custom themes editor folder ( yourthem/editor )

You don't have to change anything, you simple reupload the plugin what is going to solve that issue automatically.

As you know this plugin is my very first work that I have shared here in vbulletin.org! So I admit there were some unsolved things at the beginning. I want to thank you, both of you guys, DobieGillisİ, TimberFloorAu for putting a positive effor to make things right.

Look at the URL of the hovered link. Its not prefixing the film / actor link with imdb.com but with our site URL.
