so the answer is to wait for imdb to settle down?.
the bad thing is as soon as i found this program(pvd) it seems that imdb tries to mess with me with changing its style.
i even remember that i saw the imdb new style first when i used opera some time ago but it didnt happen in ie or firefox and it was very confusing.

so for now i dont add series till its settled.
thanks for all the answers.

that is my point exactly. the script (not update , even with fresh database) doesn't get urls for episodes so then getting data for them becomes almost impossible.

and i tired it again and again and it doesnt get urls.
i tried with imdb login and without it.i tired setting imdb design to old one(it my imdb account page there is that option ,but it seems that the new imdb plugin is not gonna work with that(havent tired that ).

do i get this correct?: with a fresh updated pvd , some users dont get urls for episodes?thats very .....
you mean if you get a new pvd (i use portable version of pvd) and update the plugins and the search for a series i may or may not get urls?

1. See attached. [Edit] This won't make any difference. If you didn't have Episodes checked in Overwrite settings, no episode records would be added. :-\

i have selected episode info in imdb plugin  to be overwrited and as i said it happens with a new database too.
and if you look at attached files you see that one have imdb link and the other doesnt and if i use imdb script to get info on both of them the second one would do a name search from imdb to find the episode which is not helpful if  the episode has no name but the first one would get the data directly from its imdb address and thats what it should do( and it used to do it that way.

like people info page that when i use imdb script on a actor it gets the info from its imdb page and doesnt search the imdb for that actor's name.

hope i explained it correctly

1."Do you have Episodes checked in both Overwrite settings and the plugin configuration?" i have set in plugin config but i dont know where is this Overwrite settings that you say.

anyway if i try with a new database even then it doesn't get the imdb links for episodes.

2.wish there wa checkbox that could make that search vanish :)

two picture for same episode that one where added before imdb changes and the other is when i try new imdb plugin

1i now checked that i doesn't get links for season 1-3 of true blood either.(*it did before with older version of imdb plugin) so that when i get info for any of said episode it shows a list to chose and its obvious that it search name of episode not imdb link.
so i think the new imdb plugin and redesign of imdb may have caused this.

2. i can drag it but next time its back to its previous position

Support / [SOLVED] Adding deleted movies
« on: October 03, 2010, 01:01:54 pm »
why when i delete a movie it doesn't actually get deleted from database?

i delete movie and when i add it again it asks if i want to add the movie that i added before or if i want to add a new one.
if i select the new one it finds nothing(says no movie found).
i noted that when i select the new option ,then  in lower status bar of pvd (that shows the internet queries) that the search from imdb is done without the search quote (with an empty quote for search )
and if i select the added before movie it gets it from the imdb page of that movie (without searching for it).it load the old movie complete with customized poster that was supposed to be deleted.

but if i search for a completely different and not added before movie (that doesn't show me that dialog to select the old movie or add a new) record the queries at bottom of pvd contains the title i requested for search.
it seems that  imdb plugin is broken in this area.(i cant test other plugin to see if thats true for them too)

the weird thing is that when i want to add "Emanuelle in America" and i search for 'Emanuelle in America' it asks with a dialog if i want the new option or the already added and deleted entry .if i select the new option it finds nothing .if i select the deleted entry it load the deleted entry complete with poster added from amazon even though i have not selected the poster option .
now the weird pat is that if i search for 'Emanuelle America' (without the 'in ') to fool pvd to think i want o add a different movie it doesn't find the 'Emanuelle in America' in its list of found movies.
plz help.

1.yes i am sure it searches by name for episodes and i thinks now that i checked it was mentioned in forums before without an answer.
right now i checked again but it seems to work only for episode of series that have unique names like the true blood series.

now it seems the problem it that it doesnt asign a imdb link to some tv series though they have imdb links for each episode. like the series 'tell me you love me' that has a page for series and a page for each doesnt add the imdb link to each episode of the series in pvd
now that i checked it pvd has some problems with tv series on imdb, for example i added th e 4 seasons of true blood series and for 3 seasons plugin can get the info if run after adding the series n individual episodes , but for season 4 even though it has imdb page if i run plugin on individual episodes it says not found.
or another one is if i delete a season from a series entry i cant add it later by running the imdb script for that series ( even though i have selected overwrite option for imdb plugin)

omg i checked again( i am checking as i write) and it seems that the links were from before the new imdb plugin and the new one doesnt even get the link for episodes.(the old one did)so i guess this  an error added in the new imdb plugin (maybe because of imdb redesigns?)
what i mean is that i deleted true blood and added it again to get the season four that was deleted but now that the episodes are added there is no imdb link in there info and so using imdb plugin on them searches by name again. problem it not pvd but running it in linux with help of wine uses i smaller window than my monitor screen(which i configured that way and dont want to change) .now when i run pvd inside wine in has to slide the tool-bar sliders to left so that they all fir but this makes some buttons disappear ( totally wine fault not pvd) so i have ( for example for switching between movie and people view ) drag the slider next to switch button to right so that  that button appear .

another suggestion:
is there any way to have a irc channel for help so that the issues get resolved faster? and then the most needed sulotion can be added to this forum as sticky post

thank you
a complete answer

i figured out the filmography part myself. sorry that i said it was a bug.i didnt understand the way pvd handled actors info .now i think i get it.

another suggestion :
when pvd gets a series info it  creates episodes entries .but it leaves them empty but they have imdb why not use that link when getting info for a single episode? like the same way pvd gets actors info.
 cause right now pvd show a long list of movies with the name of episode in them not that episode.

and another thing:can i disable(remove)websearch menu from pvd?.i dont use it and it causes problems when i run pvd in linux with wine( i am sure its wine problem but still i dont need this function of pvd)

So just, set it to "fill if empty"...

thats not good cause i need that to get pictures of people i added before new imdb plugin and anyway that not a solution thats wiping the problem.

i want to be able to update data of people and movies when i select the 'get info from ...' .i i don't select the overwrite option i cant update them(naturally) but when i select overwrite option i adds the complete list of movis for actor to actor page. this a bug and it happens after upgrade of imdb plugins so its a bug in them.
can you plz fixed that cause not overwriting in not an option. like for example i get info for a movie and then i want to have the pictures of people in that movie but i don't want to have their all works and fimography.especially when clicking on one create a movie entry in database .maybe if there was a visual difference for showing the actor movie in database and actor movies not in database.and clicking the later wouldn't create record unless you right clicked or something still getting the whole filmography is a bug ?( at least for me)and has no meaning for overwriting option to do so.i need to be ableto see if an actor is alive or dead :) with out getting the whole movie set in the databse.

btw i clicked and selected to show movies by alphabet groups ,how can i undo that? so that it becomes as it ws before?(no grouping)

« on: October 01, 2010, 01:48:36 pm »
can i learn adding or modifying scripts easily?
do i get this right?: scripts are dependable on plugins? so without a plugin i cant write a script?plugin provides a way to get info from web and makes them into fields and script are customized feilds?

does version 1 of pvd changes scripting and the way they work? so that i can learn now or wit for version 1?
learning script needs programming skills?any specific computer Language?

i just want to ask about new version of imdb plugin.
i used it for getting people info. this version downloads all the films that the actors played.i thought it was a option from preferences page but it just does get filmography of all movies not just ones i have added and its not good.i have notices this happens when chose 'overwrite' from imdb plugins for all fields.

and two other thing :
i have a slow Internet connections so when i chose a number of item and use scripts on them it takes a lot of time and some time i just want to cancel it .is there anyway to do that without closing pvd,cause that may corrupt the db ?
and if there is  new version developing going on(version 1) and needs testing (not code but just testing of app) count me in :)

so this movie worked for you? can you test that name?

If I say, "It works for me," you may assume I tested it immediately before posting.
yes i meant exactly that :)
i wanted to see if it worked for you
or you can name a movie that worked for you and i can test that?

Stay calm :) I was away for a couple of days, so the work on the people plugin stopped. Now I am back and will provide a fixed plugin in a day or two.

thanks for your work

anyway id there a posibility thatplugins become text file instead of dll so that ,say , i can update them (edit them) to fix changes in websites? or is it  aan integral part of app?

The process is slow and cumbersome, but it can be done...

you mistook my question
i asked if that 'one' picture of actor can be saved full size not thumbnail.
