my wishlist
« on: December 22, 2011, 12:46:02 am »
hi all

I would like to see the following features

additional movie fields
   * msID (aka website id) Table:wwwMIDs[MID, site(s.text/base_url), msID(s.text)] msID=mostly an integer but not allways
   * critic (memo)
   * notice (memo)
   * independent movie template (filename) ( would be nice for series, category, generes)
   
  comment:  [msID]: this would make it much easier to decide whether a movie is allready listet or not
 
   
additional person fields
   * psID (aka website id) Table:wwwPIDs[PID, site(s.text/base_url), psID(s.text)]
   * gender (integer)
   * critic (memo)
   * notice (memo)
 *** custom fields
 
  comment:  [psID]: this would make it much easier to decide whether an actor is allready listet or not
   

additional movie image fields
   * (PIDs)   to link a person to an image
   * hint    (short text)
   * sort    (integer) to sort images
   
  comment:  if * (PIDs on images) then there should be a function
 in persons imageview MODE, aka (show him/her on screens) to make sense
   
additional actor/crew fields
   * sort    (integer) to sort by importance
   * mainA   (boolean) to mark their importance and maybe to have a criteria for a shortlist on skinning
              true:main actor (default:false)
additional crew fields
   ( by importance )
 *** cinematographer
 *** cutter
 *** sound
  ** novel
  ** screenplay
   * effects
   * make-up
   * costume design
   * production design
   * lights
   * wardrobe
   * stunts
   * set decoration
   * requisite
   
   
programm behaivor
 [scripting feature] (* AddFieldValueToLastActor / * AddFieldValueXMLToLastActor)
 when adding an actor via movie import
 * the posibility to fill additional field data for the last added actor
 
 [scripting feature] (* AddFieldValueToLastEpisode / * AddFieldValueXMLToLastEpisode)
 when adding a episode via via movie import
 * the posibility to fill additional field data for the last added episode
 
 [scripting feature] (* AddFieldValueToLastMovie / * AddFieldValueXMLToLastMovie)
 when adding a movie via persons filmogarphy import
 * the posibility to fill additional field data for the last added movie

 [scripting feature] 
* real RegEx
* a php like funtion flip array which changes key/val to val/key is sometimes very helpful
* posibility to share functions withhin an extern script file
 so i dont have to rewrite them al the time

 [Option]
 when adding an actor via movie import
 * add new ones; on existing ones only overwrite role and add url
 
 [plugin settings]
  * custom plugin settings via batch import
   ( this means the settings of a plugin can different from main settings
     when it is called via batch import
     so it will behave diffrent from calling it directly
     I would need this in a lot of cases)
 
  [screenshoots, poster...]
  * image sorting (let be the first image the default one)
 
  [Option}
  when viewing movies (a limited "clear fields" option aka "clear persons")
  * delete all persons from this movie/s
 
  [Option}
  when viewing movies (a limited "clear fields" option aka "clear connections")
  * delete all connections from this movie/s
 
  [skinning]
  * background images
  * box, image shaddows (like browser behaivior)
  * popup tabs buttons (like double click on screenshoots, poster ... with fadeIn,fadeOut would be great)
   
  [generally]
  it would be a very nice thing to have a ini file 
  aka "new_databas.ini"
  * where all customfield are stored
    so when we generate a new empty DB
    all those fields will be generated automaticly
  * also for default list-items
  * also for visible data-fields
  * and for plugin-settings
  * .... image-path etc.
 
  if we would have independent movie templates
  [assign templates]
  * assign independent template to selected movies
  * assign independent template to all episodes
  * assign independent template by category, genere ....
 
  thats my pers. wishlist so far
 
 
  and once again
, thanks nostra
  thanks for the app
  the best p.MovieDatabase I know out there
 
  cu meriator
 
PS. minor bug on
[skinning]
when a costum field is assigned to the main tab or any other tab
then custom tab disapears completly
while 1000 thanks crawling after one....they may never reach...the journey is the reward

one thing I forgot
as it would be realy useful  ;) for the webpage I curently trying to parse
in a lot of times they return so many results
but they limited the results to view on 10 per page
and I did not found any way till yet to change that ... :(
(this page has a 1m searchstring  :-X
but they have allmost all of the old goodies  ( movie lang: german only)
but the site it self is multilang german / english also the descirptions,
what a challenge )

So it would be very helpfuly on certain website
to be able to add navigetion buttons to the search form

AddSearchHint (Hint :String);

AddSearchTitleButton (State : Byte; Increment : Integer; URL :String; MT : Byte);
(automaticly on movie/person search)  Result := prList;
(automaticly on image search)  Result := prListImage;

States:
1 :first page jump (increment not needed)
2: high jump back
3: low jump back
4: low jump forward
5: high jump forward
6: last page jump (increment not needed)
MT : 0=GET; 1=POST;

or if possible ( the short way )

AddPagerTitleButton (fP : Byte; curP, lastP , hits : Integer; URL%S : String; MT : Byte);
(automaticly)  Result := prList/prListImage;

fP ..... : firstpage 0=zero; 1=1; (some times the first page is zero)
curP .. : a positive integer value for the curent page
lastP . : a positive integer value for the last page
URL ... : URL string containg "%i" to fill in the increment and "%s" for the title
MT .... : 0=GET; 1=POST;

By the way it would be nice to have the posibility to force
whether the origtitle or the title is injected to the search string
maybe like "%t"(title)  OR  "%ot"(origtitle)

PS. .. just a wishlist .. me, a dreamer?
