Search by [key:IMDb] would be cool

Postby sitenoise » Sat Feb 04, 2012 11:07 am

Wouldn't it?

<A href="http://doghouse.bruji.com/index.php?keyword=[key:imdb]">Doghouse</A>

Maybe it's just the three random ones I tested but ...

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0243889/
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0780504/
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1318514/

gave too many results when searching by title (Eureka, Drive, Planet of the Apes) for me to get excited about using it. I wanna just search by [key:imdb] and if it's not there, I'll add it.

Even though I know there are a LOT of contemporary East Asian films that IMDb doesn't have yet, so I'll probably also search by title sometimes.

And the fact that you can't search by [key:imdb] makes me think that you've thought about it and have a reason for not implementing it.

Hello, this has been implemented both in the doghouse and on our website.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Cool. What does it mean it's "been implemented both in the doghouse and on our website"? Isn't the website the Doghouse?

Not exactly. The doghouse is a data repository and backend for the pedias. The website at doghouse.bruji.com is just the search functionality of the doghouse exposed.
