Easy IMDB allows WordPress users to easily embed IMDB movie images in their post using one simple tag.

Images are cached on your webserver to speed up pages as scraping from IMDB can take a while the first time you do it.

Use tag in the form of [imdb MOVIE] e.g. [imdb The Transporter]


  1. Copy the entire easyimdb folder into your wordpress plugins folder, normally located in /wp-content/plugins/

  2. Ensure your server has read and write access to the easyimdb/images folder. Setting permissions to 0777 is the easiest.

  3. Login to WordPress Admin and activate the plugin

A movie image can be embedded in a post using a tag of the following form: [imdb MOVIE] e.g. [imdb The Transporter]
