Movie list

    I have an idea for a movie list plugin.
    It should have a admin interface where you can add information about the movie and also get the info from imdb.com.
    You should also be able to add a movieart image for every listitem.

    Then in a page or post simply write [list=1] and the list with id 1 should appear in some nice way.
    With the info on the movie and the image.

    Couls also be as a drop-down where first all the items are listen with just "name, year, rating, genre" and when you click on it the image and plot sections becomes visible.

    I think this would be great and I would gladly beta test anyone who wants to make it.

    Hi, that looks like a great solution for what I need. :)
    Is everything entered by hand or is anything automatic?
    Can images be added?

    its all automatic, what happens is i have a php script which is run on my computer automatically at whatever time you specify using linix's crontab, or windows scheduler. this script uploads a .xml file of all my movies on my hard drive. it uploads it to my web space. (i use php's curl for this)

    then basicly a script on my web space reads that xml file and updates the database with any new entrys it finds, and if i delete one on my hard drive - the next time the xml script runs that file wont be there and then the script on the webspace will auto delete the entrys in the databse that arnt on the xml file.

    its sounds complicated but its pretty simple. its not a word press plug-in but can easily be made into one. if u need any help - gimme a buzz
