export Web Pages (IndexMovies) duplicates the movie title
« on: November 15, 2011, 02:43:34 pm »
Hi there,
I'm using the 0.9.9.21 version and I`m loving it.
The thing is that I want to export my video collection to make an small web-page
The tool works great but I don't know what goes wrong when after the page 10 from the index pages all movies gets a duplicate title, and it would be a pain to edit page to page since I have more than 1000 movies in my collection.
If someone could told me where I can take a look in which script file because i'm kind of lost here trying to figure it out where to looking for.
Also I don't understand why the generated index pages the titles aren't in an alphabetic order...I would appreciate if it could be done
 
Thanks in advance for your help

I think the templates by svenne are much better for HTML export. Try them:

It shouldn't be something really difficult to do, something like:

if(title=original_name)
    print: title;
else
    print: title-original_name;

 But I still don't know which file I should try to modify...that could make the job easier then reading all files

Thanks in advance

Solved, I'd think... ;) I changed my templates according to your proposal: http://www.videodb.info/forum_en/index.php/topic,1844.msg14395.html#msg14395

(At least with my templates...) The title index will be sorted the way it was in PVD when you invoked the export.
In Web Pages(Index&Movies).ptm or any other template you can resemble this by removing explicit sort commands. In Web Pages(Index&Movies).ptm you would remove
Code: [Select]
sortby="3"
sortdir="sdAscending"

There still is an issue with titles beginning with uppercase/lowercase letters or special characters. As a workaround for the "HTML Frames" template you may copy the titles from the index file (in your browser), start Excel, insert them into the first column. Then take a text editor (like notepad) and cut all <li>...</li>-lines below <div id="list"> from the (exported) HTML source code. Paste them into the second column in Excel. Let Excel sort everything alphabetically according to the first column's data and reinsert the sorted <li>...</li>-lines
back into the HTML source.
