If you have installed the 0.5 version in the first 2 hours of its release, you might have noticed some problems with it. I've uploaded a fixed version of it, so please re-download it from the link above.
Thank you.

I'm about to work on a suitable homepage for the extension.
Can you help me choose a style you believe would be best?
Here are some styles I've looked on:
Let me know your opinion.

Thanks.

FasterFox by far is the cleanest and nicer of those.

First of all: nice plugin.
I found a tiny bug: The display of the rating works at 'www.imdb.com' and at 'akas.imdb.com' but not at 'german.imdb.com'.

Besides, I don't like fasterfox, but I like the homepage ;)

@ quaz3
This is not a bug, because this is not an german extension.
Anyway, replace the Retrieve_Rating (source) with this and it should work

Code: Select all
Retrieve_Rating: function(source)
{
   var rating = -1;
   var votes = -1;
   var top_250 = -1;
   var rating2 = -1;
   var votes2 = -1;
   var top_2502 = -1;
   
   rating = this.Retrieve_String(source, 'User Rating:</h5>', '<b>', '/10</b>');
   rating2 = this.Retrieve_String(source, 'Nutzer-Bewertung:</h5>', '<b>', '/10</b>');
   votes = this.Retrieve_String(source, 'User Rating:</h5>', '<a href="ratings" class="tn15more">', ' votes');
   votes2 = this.Retrieve_String(source, 'Nutzer-Bewertung:</h5>', '<a href="ratings" class="tn15more">', ' Bewertungen');
   top_250 = this.Retrieve_String(source, 'User Rating:</h5>', 'Top 250: #', '</a>');
   top_2502 = this.Retrieve_String(source, 'Nutzer-Bewertung:</h5>', 'Top 250: #', '</a>');
   
   if (rating2 != -1) {
     rating = rating2;
   }
   if (votes2 != -1) {
     votes = votes2;
   }
   if (top_2502 != -1) {
     top_250 = top_2502;
   }
   
   if (rating != -1)
   {
      rating += "/10";
      
      if (votes != -1)
         rating += " (" + votes + ")";
      
      if (top_250 != -1)
         rating += " #" + top_250;
   }
   
   return(rating);
},

This includes also the fix for the layout change done by imdb this morning.

Thanks.
Sure, 'it's not a bug - it's a feature' ;)
But I assume quite a lot of IMDb-users use a non-english version. So looking the data up in the right subdomain would be neat. I wouldn't mind if a configuration option for the language/third level domain would exist (although most likely it's not needed).

Since everything else works fine (cast, plot, ...) I and only the rating is missing I'd still call it a bug.

Not sure if it's a bug (probably IMDB changed the website layout or layout code/syntax) but shows only title, cast, and plot. Missing the movie poster thumbnail image and rating which I would like to see in the IMDB preview popup window. Maybe something you can fix in a future update.

thank you and ALOHA

Something weird that I noticed re the thumbnail image in the imdb popup window, when the movie has no movie poster available, a 'no poster available' picture is included in the popup, but for movie titles with posters, no movie image in the popup.

hello,
i'd like to say "thank you" for this very great extension. it saves a lot of time and clicking!!

but:
i came here because the ratings did not work and find the solution-patch.
it was very hard for me to patch is, but finaly, it worked and i can see the ratings now (on german.imdb.de) thank you all.
but i'm afraid that these patches will be gone after the next update of your extension? do i have to patch then again and again for each update?

cheers

Hi

Great little tool, but here are some suggestions to make it even better:

1) It doesn't seem to work on IMDb Pro at all, Not a huge problem, but it can get a bit annoying jumping back and forward.

2) It would be really useful if it worked on all sites linking to IMDb as well as just IMDb itself, if fact this would arguably me more useful than IMDb itself.

3) This is the big one for me, Could you add alternate titles, as many films have different names in different countries, this addition would make the tool an essential (for example 'Wang-ui namja' would also list 'King and His Men' and 'The King and the Clown' so you don't need to memorize film titles)

Considering how way out most of the ratings on IMDb are, that's probably a good thing LOL
