Still to try to homogenize the formatting, I would like to ask you what you think of cases like these:
  1. 7 donne per i Mac Gregor (as Cole Kitosh) .... Dick MacGregor
  2. 7 donne per i Mac Gregor (credited as Cole Kitosh) .... Dick MacGregor
  3. 7 donne per i Mac Gregor (credited as Cole Kitosh) .... Dick MacGregor
Personally I would prefer the third solution because the bold function is sufficient on credited, it does not need to cover the name as well.

In some topics we have also used only "as" without "credited" (as Natale Nazzareno - for example). Perhaps credited should also be added. What do you think about it?

Obviously the function of bold in famous actors is overturned and serves to highlight the uncredited or credit only, as before.

Sorry again if you get bored with these details. I'm always looking for improvements.
Personally I prefer the second version with the name also highlighted
That is my preference as well, though the third option is OK too.

Ok then please use the third option. Thank you all.

I have introduced a new function, the "Title" key.
It will be enough to incorporate the text of a title and this will automatically format it and put a separation line under it. It will therefore not be necessary to use the drop-down menu to select the large font, then click on bold (B) and put under the horizontal line (hr) after.
It must be said that the "Title" in its line does not want other words, so everything that will be written after, will automatically wrap below.

Example of usage:

Code: Select all

[Title]Cast[/Title]this words written after, will automatically wrap below, so please use newline.

Cast
this words written after, will automatically wrap below, so please use newline.

I also introduced the "Subtitle" button, to make subtitles in filmographies. Check out the first Divas topics to see how the system will work.

I also introduce the "Purple" button for editing the filmographies. In this way, it will no longer be necessary to click on bold, (and also italics for the role - which we abolish, however) and then on the colour. Much faster.

Code

Code: Select all

[Purple]role?[/Purple] or [Purple]credited?[/Purple]
Result:

role? or credited? (we don't do anymore role? in bold and italic)

I took the liberty of correcting the three Peplums movies by removing the Bold from the names of the unlinked actors. Slowly I will also correct all the thrillings. Always in order to try to create a structure as simple as possible.

I am also trying to rename all the topics of all the actors, putting first the last name and then the name. This is to list the actors in alphabetical order by surname, browsing the forums. Gradually I will also have to arrange their icons that are sorted by name and not by surname.

I'm reformatting the filmographies, putting the credits last.
To get an idea of the result look at these topics already made:
viewtopic.php?f=40&t=677
viewtopic.php?f=76&t=546
viewtopic.php?f=58&t=36

Here are the indications on how to format the style for each need: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1&p=17412#p17412

Ok. It's going to take a while for me to get used to putting the credits last since the old format is really in my blood so to speak.

The examples given in the link all look good to me except this one:

[*]Ciao amici (TV Mini-series) - Season 1, ep. 4 "Parla" .... role? (credited)
A mini-series is per definition a limited series and it never lasts several seasons, and so I think it is redundant to write 'season 1, episode 4' etc. Just 'episode 4' (plus the episode title if there is one) should be enough in my opinion. The use of season is only relevant for a series that had more than one season, like for example I ragazzi del muretto, Linda e il brigadiere etc, where it is useful to distinguish by putting 'season 2, episode 4' and so on.

Anyway, another thing to determine is how to handle the credit onlys, which I think have been handled in a few different ways.

You're right, I was wrong to include that example of the mini series. I did not think about it. Take it for granted as if it were a "normal Series". For credit only I think it will be fine: (credit only). Do you have any other ideas?

No, I agree with this solution :)
