IMDb Plugin
Hi guys,

I've been working on a plugin for searching IMDb. Can somebody please test/review te first screen I created?

http://msp.florisvanderploeg.com/imdb/index_hd.php
(only in HD currently)

Currently, only this first screen is available. I want to make sure I'm on the right track (instead of having to change my code for ALL pages when I'm done :dodgySmile.
If you enter something in the search box and submit, it will do the search, but it will take you to a text page (no design yet).

If you go over the top 10 images, they should "light up". Left, Right, Up and Down buttons should work too.

Could somebody be so kind to test my plugin and post a screenshot? Thanks in advance!

kind regards,
Floris van der Ploeg

RE: IMDb Plugin
Had a very quick look and only have my phone to take a photo.Sad

The left/right etc does navigate correctly however the Top 10 seems to change each time in order or is there no order, they are just The 10 movies in no order.
When on a movie the image next door is changed to that of the one you are 'on'. It is also enlarged.

Search is working either with a correct or incorrect entry in terms of the text shows the actual search is but the screen is white with black text..

Opening page:-

Doubling of covers and disappear of cover to right:-

Pressing enter on a Top10 cover:-

You know about the second screens so apart from the issues with the Top10 and the 'missing/dupe' image it is working as you expected.
I'm not sure it is the most appealing plugin due to a combination of the text/colours. It has a 50/60's look to it IMO, just personal tastes I suppose. There is also a lot of empty space, perhaps have some text or classic movie covers in there?

RE: IMDb Plugin
Chris,

thanks for your input!

The black-white-text-screens are indeed not finished yet, but the fact that the search displays the text, means that the script is working Smile Now I need to figure out why the top10 images are shifted. Are all images shifted one to the right (so "Funny People" and "Orhpan" are actually to the right)?

I'll see if I can think of a more to-this-date design Wink

Quick question: does the browser support the background attribute in a table or td?

Quick question #2 Smile

I'm aware of the 1280x720 HD resolution with the 1100x656 viewable area. But is the viewable area centered on the screen, or located at the top left (or center left) of the screen?

RE: IMDb Plugin
It's centered.

Google gave me a myiHome design guide with some good pictures to illustrate it:

Nice, I didn't have this design document yet (I have the MSP Plugin and Portal design guides). Thanks very much!

RE: IMDb Plugin
Hi guys,

I've been working on the design (since Excal doesn't like the current design Wink) Could you take a look at this mock-up:

I was planning to put the search options under the search field (search for title, actor or character) which you can switch by using the red-green-blue buttons.

Should I continue this design? Or start over? Smile

RE: IMDb Plugin
I like it better than the old one although the old one is still showing on the NMT so the colours are hard to judge.

Hi guys,

I've been busy pouring the design into HTML. Could you check if my plugin looks good on a NMT:

http://msp.florisvanderploeg.com/imdb/

Only HD version is available. It should look like the screenshot I posted previously. I also designed the result and info pages... But they will only display "Under Construction" in the content field Smile

Thanks in advance!

Searchbox on the mainpage isn't centered and not nearly as big as it is when viewing in a browser.
Searchbox on the resultpage doesn't submit when pressing enter.

Other than that it looks alright Smile
You might want to lower the top10 covers a bit though, they're really close to the text above it.

Please read the A-Series or C-200 FAQ before posting, you may save time and find your answer

Thanks Mental!
I've fixed the searchbox on the result page, but it will still show "Under Construction" Wink I'll need to design the actual result page a bit more Smile
Lowered the top 10 covers as you said (they indeed were a bit too close to the header).

The search box on the homepage should be aligned with the "Search For" header. (to the left) But I need to figure out the exact size for the search box. The input field apparently doesn't support a css-width tag (100%). Sad

Could anybody provide tips about the size of the input field?
