Version: 2.3 (using Devel)
Recently the imdb web site interface has changed. This has affected the movie entry update as well. The following fields are not updated anymore:
Also I have noticed some issues that most probably have to do with the imdb changes, since they didn't happen before:
- "IMDb Link" field
Create a new video collection. Add an entry (i.e. Title: "Avatar", Year: "2009", Director: "James Cameron"). Update the entry via imdb. The "IMDb Link" field does not get updated. Run update again. The field gets updated.
- "Cast" field (with the imdb data source modified to have a "Maximum cast : 99")
Create a new video collection. Add an entry (i.e. Title: "Avatar", Year: "2009", Director: "James Cameron"). Do not close the "Edit Entry" window. Update the entry via imdb. In the movie's "Entry View" the "Cast" field gets updated with lots of actors. Click on the "Cast" tab in the "Edit Entry" window. Only 5 are shown. Clicking on "Save Entry" only these 5 are saved, all the rest are lost.
After some research at the imdb site it seems that the new interface is not the final one. But it seems that in the future the main title page will have just some basic information about the title. So, even though I do not know the internals of the tellico imdb update function, I suggest to use the "combined" page for updating some fields of a title (e.g. for "Avatar" this is http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0499549/combined) instead of the main page (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0499549/). This may prove to be better for any other future interface changes.
