The Movie Bunker

Brand new movie site: https://themoviebunker.com

Previously on IPS but decided to come back to Xenforo - had to start from scratch as importing was impossible due to incompatible addons, but managed to complete everything in 4 days, including adding over 1000 movies.

Using XF 2.2.10 Patch 1
Snogs/Ozzy's Movie Addon
Ozzy's Save Thread Filters Addon
@Bob AMS for the Movie Franchises
Theme from Ehren
https://xenfocus.com

That's everything I'm using just now - the site is still very much a work in progress and will grow and expand with more content over the coming months as I have some ideas for franchises and possibly fan clubs for various other aspects of movies. I will also add a TV Show section once I have completed the movie sections.

The site is open if anyone is interested in taking a look, registering and adding some movies that you have watched and enjoyed to share with others.

A few screenshots:

The front page is just a XF Page with custom HTML and external CSS.

Category page with movies listed:

Lots of custom CSS changes made to get the look and feel that I was after and I am pleased so far with the end results - but there may be some additional changes that need to be addressed when they come to light. My extra.less file is quite large lol, but it got me to where I wanted to be.

Feel free to comment and let me know if there are any bugs or anomalies that I may have missed - sometimes I can't see the wood for the trees but then I am aging somewhat at 68 years young lol.

I've just added the TV Shows back into the mix (added 490 today with more to come). They are categorised the same as the Movies, so it should be easy to find what you may be looking for. I wanted to push the latest additions to the front page, so I edited the new threads widget and added a load of custom CSS to get the look. Adding the TV Shows back in I wanted to show the latest additions for those as well, but the new threads widget was already being used, so with a little bit hokery pokery I re-jigged the new posts widget to show new threads instead; I wasn't sure it was going to work, but it did. This is what they look like on the front page:

I also added the TV Show categories to the front page, which is just a Page Node with HTML and some external CSS. The images on the front page are all webp images. I've enjoyed tinkering and all seems to be working as intended :)
