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 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.

This mod is broke and the developer is MIA! So the whole thing is useless until the person who released this can fix it to work with the changes that the IMDB people have done that breaks this mod.

The developer isn't "MIA". He commented in October that they were working on a different version. Declare him MIA if doesn't respond back within the next six months.

Digital Jedi you are wrong, I am a paying member of this mod several times for several sites and the Developer has gone MIA , their web site has shut down its chatbox and its members area and the staff no longer reply to emails or pm's for over 2 months now. Yet he has been on here very recently and has not replied to pm's or to posts in this mod. In Every Society and business if a person does not respond within 1 month they are MIA. I would constitute this as MIA and no longer supporting the MOD, also kind of Unethical for taking people's money to purchase a advanced version they do not plan on fixing nor respond back to their clients. Even worse is that for those of us that have paid we are tied into their server for our mod to work, Adv Version verification system, so when their server goes down This Adv Mod shows a large error on thousands of my pages sometimes for days until they get their server running again. Now imagine having a movie site with 25,000 movies and threads using IMDB Adv version, if this mod or their server goes down it truly affects my web sites big time.

I guess if you were dealing with a larger business, but when you pay for something like a vBulletin mod, you're usually dealing with a guy, or a group of friends/associates. Generally speaking, and speaking from experience, when they say they are busy working on something and when they shut down something that requires constant moderation, that usually means they're busy working on the product they said they were working on. I know you guys would love week to week updates, but since things change so fast and personal issues will kibosh any plans you had on doing great support, sometimes you have to "disappear" for a few months just to get the product out that everybody wanted. If someone says they're working on something, and they're not committed to me for any reason, then I take them at their word they are. They only really need to say it once. It's because you paid for the product and that they have paying customers that I presume you haven't heard from them. I assume good faith until I have good reason to believe otherwise, and I think we all should.

Digital Jedi You are right, we must have faith in the fact that they will make this right. I will say they have been very helpful and seem trustworthy when I have spoken to them in the past.

On A Side Note I would Love to have your AME plugin for IMDB. This would help me port over a few more thousand threads that have not been updated yet. Although IMDB is not completely working it works well enough on most movie titles that I am still using it. You can pm me a response if you like.

All of this could be solved, really, if IMDB had some sort of API. I spent the entire day, yesterday, trying to figure an IMDB definition and was surprised to find that IMDB is an Amazon.com company. Heck, just a search string URL, like the one Yahoo! is shutting down this month, would be great.

Which version of AME do you have? I've only done one for AME 2.5 so far. Should probably be able to do one for AME 3 if that one works, too.

Well, AME 3 is only if you have a 4.0 board and it had some problems. The changes they made to vB 4 kind of messed with The Geek's ability to make it work.

Since your on 2.5 you can try what I've got. I presume the Replacment Code for the paid version is the same as the Lite Version?

If it's the same, then you don't need to change anything.

If the paid version has different Replacement Code, then just go into the Replacement HTML in the definition, paste in the code that's needed and change:
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

to:
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

. Then you should be all set.

This is the replacement code i have for IMDB bbcode. Let me know if you would like to check anything directly. I will give you any info you need.

update: Seems i have a hidden bbcode for imdb, it does not show in custom bbcodes. Well the one the system is using is not using the custom bbcode i made but one integrated somewhere.

Thanks a bunch for this.
