If anyone downloaded this, there was a problem with the install file. Please download again and try installing again. The error should be gone.

It's not an option at this time.

I may add languages as an option in the Pro version in the future. But, I really don't know which languages are the most common.

Where are you trying to search for movies? There is no built in search function.

And what movie are you searching for?

I tried to search for a movie on the TMBD site to get the id or link to post in the title of new thread, no luck for the first 3 movies i searched for, no results... so then I searched an old movie and found one but could not find id anywhere so I tried posting the url of the page in the title box, nothing has worked. I may be using this completely wrong or something not sure...

That's why I asked what movie you were searching for. So I could see if I could find it.

Also the Title box for a new thread should not be showing. See this image http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/attac...0&d=1371648426

In any case the URL that gets pasted into the box looks like this (using the movie Alien as an example)..

I'm working on language support in the PRO version now. The LITE version will not support multiple languages.

Go to ACP->Maintenance->View PHP Info and see if CURL is listed there and if it's enabled.

If it is, have you entered an API Key for The Movie Database in ACP->Settings->Options, 'TMDb Thread Settings'? Without it, the system will not work.

The system has not been tested on 4.2.0, so no support will be given for that version.

But, did you turn on the system after installing?

And did you select a Forum that will be used by the system?
