    I have released a small IMDB movie content in posts plugin.

    You can see a screenshot and read more here: Rum Movie plugin.

    Ok I think I like this plugin but I'm not sure :-)

    Would this be an example of the plugin at work?

    If so, how would this work with a post? I'm working on a review site and part of the information provided would be really quite useful such as teh directed by, starring etc. Ofc ourse I only want this to be for film related posts.

    Say I wanted the said informaton to be provided at the end of the review, would that be possible? I'm not sure as to the flexibility and it's usage so perhaps you can clarify for me.

    It looks very promising though, and if you can build something for books, games and music that would be more than welcome - I'm sure this is more difficult than it sounds though (Amazon are a good source for those items to drag info from :-))

    Yeah thats how the default pattern is set to copy into an post...

    Its quite simpel jinsan, right now its said to copy into the content of an post... (Try it out, you can always disable the plugin again)... I've wondered about maybe adding possibility to append to post, and "dont download local picture".

    You define how the pattern is in the plugin file...

    I dont think I wanna do same thing with books and games (have seen some amazon plugins, but dont know if they can do what you want), i created this specific for my own DVD movie collection...

    Ah so at the moment it does add it's own picture from IMDB? I never thought of that, that would be a feature to disable I would welcome as IMDB doesn't have all the images for all films and I tend to keep a copy of the cover myself.

    I'll look at the plugin with more vigour later, but it's a very useful tool that I hope someone will emulate to cover other media.

    Thanks

    I just thought of something else, but how about the option to set the description as the excerpt of a post? Even if it doesn't become the main post, whe it comes to archives it would probably provide a much better description than what a user would come up with.

    No clue as to why it's not showing up? I've deleted it and re-uploaded and activated it 5 times and still nothing shows up on the write page under the qucktags.

    Skedoozy are you running it on windows or linux?

    Could you try to "view source" of post.php and see if

    function HandleMovie(movie)

    exists in the code?

    <?php phpinfo(); ?>

    And throw back the link here? :)

    That fixed it. Thanks. I had just converted the phps to php and that caused the problem. Thanks again for all your hard work.

    I've installed both the rumcategory and rummovie plugins. The IMDB button shows up in admin, pressing it brings up the search window from IMDB, entering the movie title brings up a list of movies but clicking on the movie you want closes the window and when I look at the post, nothing is different-- nothing is imported from IMDB.

    I am running most recent update of WP. Please Help! I really want this functionality.

    I'm having trouble with the RumMovie plugin. I haven't clicked on the IMDB button in any of my WP blogs in awhile, but went to do so tonight and when I clicked on the IMDB button, the search popup appeared. I keyed in a movie to search and when I clicked the SEARCH button, I got this error:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function: socket_create() in /home/.bass/jmueller/babygotblog.com/wp-content/plugins/RumLib/httpclient.php on line 59

    I checked in my husband's blog and the plugin isn't working there either, but with different results. He can click on IMDB and do a search, but no matter what movie you put it, it returns no movie data. At least he's getting something besides an error page.

    I have to say that the difference between my and my husband's blog is I'm at dreamhost.com and he's at surpasshosting.com.

    Thanks for any assistance. I've tried deactivating and uninstalling and reinstalling the latest version, still same problems on each blog.

    Further, and possibly related, my AMM (Amazon Media Manager) plugin returns no search results either. Odd.

    BUT my ChaitGear CGA plugin returns amazon.com search results just fine and dandy.

    RumMovie plugin is still choking and giving this error:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function: socket_create() in /home/.bass/jmueller/babygotblog.com/wp-content/plugins/RumLib/httpclient.php on line 59

    RumMovie gives this error message AFTER you key in a search term.

    Any thoughts? While my web host has disabled fopen(), it does have cURL enabled.
