Add a Movie in the Database

Post by Emiliano » 16/04/2021, 23:26

Open a new topic. On "Subject" add the title of the movie followed by the year of production, for example: Inferno in diretta (1985)

The film essentially consists of 4 posts (plus all the comments that will come).

In the 1st post, copy and paste this code:

Code: Select all

[attachment]movie title image[/attachment]


English title: [b]english movie title[/b]


[title]Director[/title]
To be added


[title]Storyline[/title]
To be added


[title]Cast[/title]
[list]
[*][iurl=]Credited[/iurl]
[*][iurl=]Uncredited[/iurl]
[*][iurl=]Unidentified[/iurl]
[/list]

[gallery]4 or 5 attachments[/gallery]
On the 2nd post, you must enter all the snapshots of the Credited actors of the cast in the order they are listed in the titles. Copy and paste this code:

Code: Select all

[title]Credited cast[/title]
[attachment]lead actor image[/attachment]
Actor's name
as [i]Role in the movie[/i]


[attachment]2nd leading actor image[/attachment]
Actor's name
as [i]Role in the movie[/i]
Remember: use always 2 lines of space paragraph between the snapshots and their captions.

Examples of formatting style:

Code: Select all

[iurl=624]Walter Williams[/iurl]
[s](credited as "Robert Buchanan")[/s]
as [i]Hegai[/i]
Walter Williams
(credited as "Robert Buchanan")
as Hegai

Code: Select all

[iurl=1714]Gabriele Ferzetti[/iurl]
as [i]Paolo[/i][
[s](and with)[/s]
Gabriele Ferzetti
as Paolo
(and with)

Code: Select all

[iurl=345]Carla Mancini[/iurl] c.s.c.
[s]Credit only[/s]
Carla Mancini c.s.c.
Credit only

Code: Select all

[iurl=345]Billy Rock[/iurl]
[s]Unidentified[/s]
Billy Rock
Unidentified

On the 3rd post you must enter all the snapshots of the identified Uncredited actors. Copy and paste this code:

Code: Select all

[title]Uncredited cast[/title]


[attachment]uncredited actor image[/attachment]
Actor's name
as [i]Role in the movie[/i]
Finally, on the 4th post you must enter all the snapshots of the Unidentified actors. Copy and paste this code:

Code: Select all

[title]Unidentified cast[/title]


[attachment]unidentified actor image[/attachment]
[i]Role in the movie[/i]
Use the button "iurl" if the actor is listed in our pages.

Code: Select all

[iurl=828]Aldo Cecconi[/iurl]
The number 828 equals the actor's topic ID number. To find out which topic number an actor corresponds to, go to the list of actors and by scrolling with the mouse over the name of the actor's link.

How to edit the small menu under the movie titles - useful to ge the post of interest immediately.

How to do? For example, copy the link of the 2nd post with the Credited cast with the right click of the mouse
2.jpg

Than paste it in the 1st post, in the code

Code: Select all

[list]
[*][iurl=https://www.thrillingforum.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=75&t=822#p35701]Credited cast[/iurl]
[*][iurl=]Uncredited cast[/iurl]
[*][iurl=]Unidentified cast[/iurl]
[/list]

Cut the unnecessary part of the link (until the topic's number)

Code: Select all

[list]
[*][iurl=822#p35701]Credited cast[/iurl]
[*][iurl=]Uncredited cast[/iurl]
[*][iurl=]Unidentified cast[/iurl]

Adding the equal symbol and the number 828 that equals the actor's topic number. To find out which topic number an actor corresponds to, go to the list of actors and by scrolling with the mouse over the name of the actor's link; than note the latest numbers that appear in the address bar.
Also use this format to add a link from the actor's filmography to the film topic, highlighting the title of the film only and adding the number of the topic page. I guess this might only work for moderators or people editing the filmographies of topics they created.

No Actor Image

Post by Emiliano » 02/11/2022, 15:54

***Updated 10/12/2022***

When an accredited actor/actress is not recognized, an image must be affixed as a "placeholder". Here are some available for each genre, in formats that can come closest to snapshots (4:3, 1,66:1, 1,85:1 and 2.35:1). Choose and download one of these according to the aspect-ratio of your snapshots, in the way that the "placeholder" will not clash with the other images. Note: if the snapshots have a height less than 570px, the proportions will not be respected anyway.
