This is giving me a headache. I use ICM for my watchlists and I had a few noirs and Korean movies listed for next month. As well as some of the newer features and documentaries.
Now I used the button 'remove checked movies' and now my order has been totally ruined. It uses position now instead of date added ...

I can change it of course by clicking twice on 'Date added' but it's horrible to do this on a phone. Any way to get my list back to date added as default ?

Thanks in advance.

Sorry for bumping but it is really annoying me and I am starting to think about using something else to get my watchlists on.

Do you use position for anything? I think I know what happened:
The default has always been position. By default position and date added are the same. If you move a movie (or click remove movies) while in a different view, it'll renumber the positions to that view.. To fix it, sort by date added move a movie up or down one slot, then move it back if you wish, and it'll reorder the whole list by date added.

What am I doing wrong? I typed this:

But without the slash in the first [img].

imdb doesn't allow hotlinking images like that.

If you're using Chrome, right-click that image and select "Copy image address", which gives you the actual .jpg address for that image. Then you can paste that here and use the [img] [/ img] around the link. Similar deal for Firefox, it's worded as "Copy Image Location" but same idea.

Thanks. I guess Microsoft Edge isn't really comfortable with phpbb-pages.

You don't use the actual image url. This is it:

Code: Select all

Thank you all. Edge doesn't have the option to copy an image's address. I guess I'll use Chrome from now on.

Oh, I use Edge on my work computer. It's just a slightly different way to do it there than on Chrome or Firefox. Just right-click the image on that IMDB link you posted, and then select "Ask Bing about this picture". Click the "See full-size image" link that appears to the right, and there's your URL that you can copy and paste here.

Save as minor edit
Don't know about you guys, but this little thing drives me crazy every time I want to update my list. I simply can't remember what it means. Is it:

A/ Save the list but don't add it as an official list update, as it is only a minor edit.
B/ Save this edit as an official list update.

Can we please change the wording of that to something more descriptive?

I would also like to add that once you save a list as a minor update, it also screws up the dates used/displayed in the history.

Minor update is for when you make a mistake. So it acts as if the change you did was part of the last update, preserving the previous history and numbering and new entries etc.
Not checking the box makes it a proper update, so the previous list gets saved in the history as is and the new update shows changes from it.

Except it DOES change the date associated with that list version.

Huh, I'm pretty sure it didn't in the past.
