PostSubject: What to do when IMDB refuses to give the right information?   Mon May 18, 2009 8:46 am

I have 1 movie "The Eye (2008)" with Jessica Alba that IMDB refuses to find. For some odd reason, it brings up "Rambo (2008)".

As well, I do not know how to edit within MC to change this. Even if I edit all of the info, I cannot change the IMDB Number.

Can somebody please tell me how to do this.

There does appear to be an issue with that but using the "Editor" button did let me change it (I didn't want to save the page, I assume it will work), otherwise the change movie option within the editor should do the trick.

Just goto the edit movie window and select 'change movie', this will let you select the correct movie manually.

As for the why, it is one of those little issues that makes it so difficult to scrape from IMDB with 100% accuracy, it would ber easy to fix it so that this movie was scraped correctly, but it would stop many more movies being scraped correctly.

I have an idea that will improve the situation, but it's on the backburner on the moment, i'm in the middle some serious rewriting.

Hi guys,

Thanks for the help regarding this. I didn't even think to use Editor. My mind got "stuck" on that darn IMDB Number that refused to change. All is good now.

I have another question that I will start another post for in regards to scraping of posters.
