Best Practices for DVDPedia

Postby kennedyrt » Mon Mar 16, 2020 4:32 pm

I have a two questions regarding best practices for DVDPedia.

(1) Is the Subtitle field being used to add more information to the title than just the title or is it to indicate that the film has subtitles?

(2) In the Price field, should the amount be preceded by a currently indicator (e.g., $, €, £, ¥, etc.)?

It is used to indicate that the film has subtitles and what they are and you can populate it with any number of languages. It is also classed as an Autofill field which can be edited in: DVDpedia > Preferences > Autofill > Languages. That field is also automatically populated by search plug-ins so unadvisable that you use it for anything else.

That is entirely up to you. But for currency nomenclature aesthetics and grammatical accuracy I would. I have asked in the past, if possible, that these currency fields be populated by the OS default currency prefix automatically when you click in the field but still make it editable for times you buy an item outside of your own currency.
