Beskrywing

Using Movie Shortcode you can easily add information about a movie, tv show, episode or actor to a blog post.

Simply enter the shortcode: [movie imdb=”an IMDB ID”] or [movie title=”A Movie Title”] to a blog post to add an array of information about the movie, tv show or episode; or enter the shortcode [actor tmdb=”a TMDB person ID”] or [actor name=”An actors name”] to a blog post to add an array of information about the actor.

Kwel-vrae

How do I find an IMDB ID

When viewing a movie, tv show or episode on IMDB.com, the ID is the string starting with ‘tt’, usually in the format www.imdb.com/title/imdbid/

How do I adjust the cache time

Add the attribute cachetime=”a time in minutes” to your shortcode

Using the shortcode with a title returns the wrong movie

Try adding the optional attributes, type=”movie|series|episode” and year=”a year” to refine your search result

How do I hide the plot and information

Include the optional “disable” attribute, disable=”plot,information”
