It looks different field types react different against same attribute. For example, 'Title' (simple edit) and 'human' (link memo) fields don't respond same on halign="center", or autosize="true", etc...

Here, Title (It's custom Title from AMG script) is "short text" field with additional Year field:
Quote
<row>
     <column space="0" halign="left" autosize="true" wordwrap="true">List number<spacer width="8"/><num width="92">Ordinal number
         <font>
              <size>24</size>
              <color>$FDD017</color>
            </font></num></column>
        <column space="0" halign="center" wordwrap="true" width="100%">Custom (English) Movie Title with year
         <custom field="Title" autosize="true">Custom Title
            <font>
               <size>24</size>
               <color>$FDD017</color>
            </font>
         </custom>
         <label autosize="true">Left Bracket label
            <font>
               <size>24</size>
               <color>$FDD017</color>
            </font>
            <caption> (</caption>
         </label>
            <year autosize="true">Year
            <font>
               <size>24</size>
               <color>$FDD017</color>
            </font>
            </year>
         <label autosize="true">Right Bracket label
            <font>
               <size>24</size>
               <color>$FDD017</color>
            </font>
            <caption>)</caption></label>
         </column>
      </row>

and the result is:



Now, exactly the same formatting, but Title is "memo" field (It's custom Title1 from AMG script which contains year by design) again with additional Year field:

Quote
<row>
            <column space="0" halign="left" autosize="true" wordwrap="true">List number
               <spacer width="8"/>
               <num width="92">Ordinal number
                  <font>
                     <size>24</size>
                     <color>$FDD017</color>
                  </font>
               </num>
            </column>
            <column space="0" halign="center" wordwrap="true" width="100%">Custom (English) Movie Title with year
               <custom field="Title1" autosize="true" collapsedlines="3">Custom Title
                  <font>
                     <size>24</size>
                     <color>$FDD017</color>
                  </font>
               </custom>
               <label autosize="true">Left Bracket label
                  <font>
                     <size>24</size>
                     <color>$FDD017</color>
                  </font>
                     <caption> (</caption>
               </label>
               <year autosize="true">Year
                  <font>
                     <size>24</size>
                     <color>$FDD017</color>
                  </font>
               </year>
               <label autosize="true">Right Bracket label
                  <font>
                     <size>24</size>
                     <color>$FDD017</color>
                  </font>
                     <caption>)</caption>
               </label>
         <spacer width="10"/>
            </column>
         </row>

but the result is surprisingly (and frustrating) different:

The following custom fields can be added to the IMDB_ [EN] [HTTPS] script.

Origtitle, Title and Localized title custom box.

Quote
Function ParsePage_IMDBMovieBASE(HTML:String):Cardinal; //BlockOpen
.
.
.
    LogMessage('Function ParsePage_IMDBMovieBASE BEGIN======================|');
    Result:=prFinished;  //It will change to prError if any big problem with exit;

    //Get ~title~, ~year~, ~origtitle~, ~poster~

    ItemList:=TextBetWeenFirst(HTML,'<div class="title_block"','div class="plot_summary_wrapper">'); //WEB_SPECIFIC.

        //Get ~origtitle~
        ItemValue:=TextBetWeenFirst(ItemList,'<div class="originalTitle">','<');          //Strings which opens/closes the data. WEB_SPECIFIC
        If (Length(ItemValue)=0) Then ItemValue:=titleValue;                           //Provider hides the original title if same that title. WEB_SPECIFIC
        AddFieldValueXML('origtitle',ItemValue);
      AddCustomFieldValueByName('Origtitle',ItemValue);
        LogMessage('      Get result origtitle:'+ItemValue+'||');
        ItemValue:=TextBetWeenFirst(ItemList,BASE_URL_IMAGE_PRE_TRUE,'.');

        index:=index+1;  //In order to make a for loop with +2 increment (one here and one by the for).
    End;
    AddFieldValueXML('aka',ItemValue);
    LogMessage('      Get results aka:'+ItemValue+'||');
    LogMessage('Function ParsePage_IMDBMovieAKA END=====================||');
  End; //BlockClose

These custom fields will be added in the next script update.

IMDB_ [EN] [HTTPS] _ (afrocuban) script is attached.

It looks like fields containing URLs cannot be centered.

Thanks a llot Ivek! "Wordwrap" seems to work only for labels, not for other fields, so we are pretty limited with that... So if I have a movie with the long title, for example, "Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond - Featuring a Very Special, Contractually Obligated Mention of Tony Clifton"
theres no way it's title to be seen in the skin in whole with the font size bigger than 14 or so because of the single line field... Who would say about such a strange limitation...

Some things cannot be done to our liking.



I am attaching a PVD IMDb Conservative AllPhoto Full HD v2 - Dark_MOD zip file with two mod fixes to your Dark Theme skin and two skin test with colors and certain blank skin codes for any skin editing help.

By the way, another piece of advice that you might add somewhere from the tests of the skin so that certain fields will not be visible if they are empty.

If I can help you make the poza easier to your liking, why not. What I mentioned around the blank fields of vision was just my suggestion of how I would do it. On the other hand, you are also right to do something to your taste and desires. I hope you manage to make the skin the way you want to have it, but you can also share it with others if you naturally want to and maybe give them inspiration to create their own skin.

I'm sorry, I didn't mean anything wrong with the suggestions.

We are imensely grateful you are always, but always there for us, and I just don't want to turn out that it looks like I misuse your good will. We have to spare you and your time for more important things regarding PVD, and that is why I wrote that I won't bother you anymore.

Can't emphesize enough how we depend on you!
