NOTE: The TV Thread Starter has been released without forum genre limiting. This is because the API at TMDb does not yet contain the function to get genres. Once that is added to the API, forum genre limiting will be added to the system.

Just installed...

cannot find the option/permisson to "rate" the shows, as seen on your site.

@Snog is there any certain reason why the ability to post single episodes as titles is not possible?

In a reply, you get this option:

Yet you cannot start a topic in that manner.

Seeing as how it displays and acts like the other full show post, it wouldn't be too hard to make that an option.

Is this possible at all, or a pipe dream?

Thanks!

--Edit, I see Az posted as well. Perhaps we should communicate a bit better... hahahaha.

Would it be possible to be able to post episodes as threads instead of just as replies? :)

If anyone read what I posted, scratch that.

I'll add this to the wish list.

But how to display it in the forum thread list, etc would need to be worked out.

Let me ask you this..

Are you talking about dedicating a node category to a single show and then posting episodes in that category?

The Walking Dead S01 E01

Something like that. Show / Season / Episode

Most seem to follow that type of format.

Hmm.

Lets see.

You have a general discussion area.

TV SHOW FAVORITES
  • Game of Thrones
  • The Walking Dead
  • Family Guy
  • Orange Is The New Black
You can discuss anything in the "main area". The characters, plot, history, etc...

Under each

Game of Thrones
  • Episode Discussion
The Walking Dead
  • Episode Discussion
Something of that nature....

The title I referred to above, would then be able to be used if forums were merged. You don't have the poster, all of that info, simply just the title. You can still have the ratings of each displayed as well.

Thanks. That's what I needed to know because just a post of an episode by itself would seem a bit out of place to me.

Like I said, I'll put this on the wish list. I kind of like this idea and I might be able to do something with the category display where it shows the tv show main info in the category too. ;)

Like I said, I'd be completely fine with "The Walking Dead, Season 3 Episode 14"....

Some do have show titles, some do not, so that would be a least an inbetween. I know when I search google, I use S03E14 in my terms, so that might even be helpful.

This for me too - I rarely search for episode titles, generally go with season and episode numbers :)

if you request new function i think they need rewrite API from here http://www.themoviedb.org/tv API developer adds new function like genre and also yours request, so i think @Snog cannot do anything, except to wait API developer to add this function, do you understand now
I'm not sure I can agree with that.

It already displays.... In a reply:

From that, to turn it into a title, the same link can be used, just need use The name of the show, then Season and Episode (as it is already entered). Or at least a variation.
