I like it!

But I hope you won't want us to be using the AKAs IMDb link though.....

In Cinematic Collection Viewer you can customize it via the settings.ini
Something like this should also be possible to implement in Profiler's options menu.

Yeah but the search is then on a bigger dataset so search times increase a little bit and the search results screen is cluttered by displaying all matching akas under each title. That's obviously acceptable if you need the additional akas, but not everyone does.


Yeah, I didn't take that into account, mostly because I don't mind it but still, it's a valid point.

To look at additional information which DVD Profiler doesn't have...? Sure, it's trivial and you don't care, but apparently others do...


I care that Ken has said do not use IMDB data.  It is simply not prudent to take that stance and then have a built-in link that takes you to that site.  To think that it is shows a profound lack of logic.

We already have a built-in link that takes you to IMDb.

I 'enhanced' ya-shin's code a little to produce something slightly different.

It's a screen capture and is rather large, so I'll just post a link.

Click here to see

And here's the code I used to do it.

Quote:

<HTML>
<HEAD>
<SCRIPT TYPE="text/javascript">
<!--
<DP NAME="HEADER_VARS" Language="JavaScript" Comments="True" IncludeCast="False" IncludeCrew="False">
/**************************************************/
// Open IMDb page for the profile
function imdb() {
  var imdbStart = DP_Notes.toLowerCase().search("\<imdb\>") + 6;
  var imdbEnd = DP_Notes.toLowerCase().search("\<\/imdb\>");
  var imdbCode = DP_Notes.slice(imdbStart, imdbEnd);
  var imdbLink = ("http://www.imdb.com/title/" + imdbCode);
  if (imdbEnd > 1) {
    window.location.href= imdbLink;
  } else {
    document.write("You need to add &LT;IMDB&GT;ttXXXXX&LT;/IMDB&GT; to your notes for this to work")
  }
}
//-->
</SCRIPT>
</HEAD>
<BODY onload="imdb();">
</BODY>
</HTML>


Updated with code from xyrano (thanks).

You should ask Ken why he provides a link to it in DVDP?????

That link has been there as long as I can recall (go ahead and look in 2.4).

Ken doesn't want us to copy data from their database to the DVD Profiler database.  That breaks IMDB rules.  But they (IMDB) encourage people to link to them.  You seem to think the goal is to copy data, but there are a lot of other reasons one might want to jump from a title to IMDB.  Re-read this thread and you'll see many of those reasons listed.

The only difference is that my version displays the imdb page inside dvdprofiler, where ya-shin's pops up a new window

Great, just what they need.  If the data is suspect, what's the point of linking to it?  You can't rely on anything you find there.  I quit using IMDB long before I ever heard of Profiler because of even then I could see the errors.

Just found this and got it running. I was wondering, is there anyway to stop the tt number showing in the notes section?

for anything in notes that I don't want to show... I put in brackets... so it would be <tt#>.... and then of course make sure in options you have notes set to "show notes as html"... or something like that. Don't have my program open at the moment.
