using the modded 0.6 preview with the working ratings.. and trying to make some of my own changes to the preview... it seems if I make any changes to the overlay.js file.. any changes I make to the padding settings.. after restarting firefox they work the very first time.. ie the first time I hover over an imdb link.. the preview window will show up with my padding changes etc.. but trying the second time they are replaced with some default settings ... the manifest file links to the folder content folder and not the jar file now .. and the .jar file has been renamed.. so its like something else is playing about?

Guys, I've noticed something which may be useful to you while making newer version of the plug-in. When you're logged in (to your account at imdb.com) the rating isn't displayed again unless you preview a movie which you've rated yourself - then instead of the accurate rating - rate which you gave is displayed.
When you logs out the rating is displayed normally.

Anyone know how this plugin could be set to ignore a redirected link to imdb? ie "http://blahblah.com/redirect.php?url=http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0824747/" and just directly read the original imdb link?

even the redirect remover plugin that will show you the original redirect link in the status bar, and take you directly to that link.. the imdb preview plugin won't read it that way... :(

Can you please update this add-on, it doesn't work any longer.
Only a picture is shown, no text!

Thanks in advance.

hi, my most favourite plugin, so had to sign up to this forum with my comments.

I also would like this plugin to be able handling referral links, i.e. "http://blahblah.com/redirect.php?url=http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0468569/"

looking at the imdbp_mymovies.js within the imdb_preview.jar file within the imdb_preview-0.6-fx.xpi, there is one line that according to me checks the URL. Unfortunately I'm not a programmer, so I'm unable to further decipher, but maybe this would help anyone else to tweak this plugin so it can handle re-directs.

Code: Select all
   TITLE_REGEXP: /^((http:\/\/)(\w*\.)?((imdb\.com)(.*)(\/title\/tt\d{7})(\/)?))/,


would /^ not imply that it is looking for http://www.imdb.com at the beginning of the URL instead of anywhere within the URL?

As I said, I'm afraid I am no programmer, and wouldn't know how to correctly change this piece of code to allow for redirects. Would anyone else be able to push this forward?

Wouter.

Nice extension. Would it be possible to make the text in the popup smaller though?

this seems to work quite delicious after some weeks of testing. Thans a lot! keep up the greatly apreciated good work.

EDIT:

after writing this, i found a film, where no image is displayed in the preview-popup, but a poster is available on the film-page.
so this could be a feature-request :-)


go to:
http://www.imdb.com/find?s=all&q=angel+of+death&x=0&y=0

and hover the mouse over:

Titles (Exact Matches) (Displaying 7 Results)
1. Angel of Death (2009) <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
aka "Ed Brubaker's Angel of Death" - USA (complete title

no image/poster is shown in the popup.

if you click the link, you see a photo http://www.imdb.com/rg/photos-title/pro ... /tt1269734
which could be shown in the preview.

Ever since the latest updates to FF and IMDB Preview, all I get on my main computer is a picture. On my laptop, however, it works properly. I tried removing and reinstalling, but it did not work.

Main computer: Latest FF, IMDB Preview 0.5.1, AMD 64 bit dual core with Win XP Pro 64.

Laptop: Latest FF, IMDB Preview 0.5.1, HP AMD 64 bit dual core with Win Vista Home 64.
