Support / Problem with name Urls
« on: September 20, 2010, 09:34:47 pm »
Hello everybody,

I don't know if this is actually a problem of my script or a general one. Everytime I use my plugin for with a movie that contains special characters in the actor url, I get an duplicate entry in my people db.

For example I added a movie with Brittany O'Connel. The actor url is "'connell.htm". If I run the plugin three times on the same movie, I get three entrys - each of them has the exact actor name and url. There seems to be no difference in these entrys. All others actors are added only once.

I noticed this error when adding people with an ' in their url like O'Neil, O'Connel, ...

Maybe there is a workaround for my problem? I would be pleased to here from you.

After some testing I declare my first script ready and want to share it with you. I guess some parts could be solved more elegantly, but I don't want to spend more energy on it.

Keep in mind that iafd has only very little information about the movie (and no posters) so most of the fields will not be filled.
What is HAS is a really consistent person database with names actors always by their real name (and the alternative name in () ).

Last but not least: iafd has some anti-robot protection, locking your IP for several hours (I only hit that limit once, must be somewhere >1000 requests per day....)

Have a nice day,

I just finished my first two scripts for movies and persons. During movie import I'm adding all actors. Is is possible to run the person script from within the movie script to add a new person to the database? At the moment I have to switch to the movie, select the person, run the script and switch right back to select the next one. Got some more movies on my list  ;) and this is very annoying...

Thanks for your help,
