v2.5b => v3.0 - Everything except for the Rotten Tomatoes Link is automatically grabbed from the IMDB ID. No more manual template edits.
v3.0 => 3.0.2 - Added choice of automatic or manual YouTube trailer.

To manually add the mod to one particular forum:
Copy/paste the code below into the FORUMDISPLAY template of the skin you are using. I usually put it under the {vb:raw navbar}. Change the red "x" to the sub-forum id.

***Note: I have tested this on vBulletin 4.0.5 and it is working 100%***

v3.0 Note: If you are upgrading from a previous version that required template edits you "MUST" undo those template edits or lytebox won't work.

***UPDATE***

The release date on the IMDB information will be relative to what country your server is in. The 2.5b update is purely optional. If you want to have IMDB information automatically grabbed then you may use it. If you are new and not updating and want 2.5b you need to also download upload.zip

Excellent.

A developer that supports his mods and keeps preening it

2.5b Note: You must use the FULL URL for imdb for the mod to call the information which is : http://www.imdb/title/ttxxxxxxx (just www.imdb - will not work)

Thanks for the note to the users. I'll add it to the main post. Let me know if you notice any bugs. I'm going to keep it in beta for a little while to see if any bugs pop up. Would be great to get a screen shot of it on your site if you don't mind. How do you feel about the IMDB auto information? I figured it would make things a bit easier.

Do you mean the bug screen shot?


It also screws your navbar up :O

*****

The IMDB auto update is brilliant saves copying the plot info and look much much better.

Oh that's when you just use www.imdb. Nasty looking thing we've got there, lol.

Thanks for the screen shot I was hoping to see a screen shot of it working properly

I have a suggestion

You are using the double use of youtube - ie a video in lightbox and also a link above that leads to the external source - but it basically does the same thing.

When searching for sources on my site vbulletin search is very restricted as many movies are called The (something) etc etc

So we use a imdb code to search which brings back accurate results. tt1375666 is inception as long as the post has that information in it.

My suggestion if possible is instead of having a youtube link but maybe a result link (still trying to define the correct word)

So when pressed it searches for anything with imdb info of the movie of the week in it.

Search + this : http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1375666 doesnt work but

search + this : tt1375666 does work

Well guys/gals, I know that I've been updating this mod like crazy but I think that v3.0 might be the final version. If it has bugs however I will fix them and release sub versions for the bug fixes. If you find any bug fixes feel free to post here. Enjoy my wonderful creation.

Hm. I'm not quite sure I understand. You mean like have the YouTube link instead be a link that does a search for the IMDB ID on the forum? That's a cool idea. Maybe I can make it for ya. I'll look at making it work.

///EDIT///
I've got it working and it was simple but if you have the discussion thread set then why would you need to search for the thread?

v3.0 - Note: Possible Bug Alert - I might be reverting back to not automating the YouTube trailer because some movies don't have a proper YouTube id and won't have a link or trailer.

//NEVER MIND//

If a YouTube link doesn't work post here and I'll see if I can get it to work for you.

I thought all YT links had tt and then the number, the only problem would be the um-embeddable stuff buy you wouldn't use it in any case.

Ok www.britmovie/britforum the youtube doesnt pull any trailer in. Maybe this would be better to have as manual and auto selection. maybe even the same with others as well.

A great adition would be something where members can recomend a film and users can vote on recomendations for movie of the month. Or is this getting to complicated as its easy for me to say?

great work loving it!

Ok minor problem for me is I use vBSEO so where do I get the Discussion Thread ID from as its slightly altred. The last version I got working but can not rem where I got it from?

And if you look at the box outline its huge. Can I make it thinner or get rid of it?

Thanks sooo much again.
