Now that IMDB has changed the format in which the watchlist can be arranged, how can I do a search on all the shows in my watchlist that are playing on tv in the next 3 days?srch
I just noticed that the watchlist now has a 'load more'-button instead of numbered pages.
Don't tell me this site is going down the same shitty path that youtube did. With a sufficiently long list, it will take forever to get to the middle of it. Which is a big problem on youtube when a channel has, say, over 1000 videos, and that's not so rare with big channels.
Why change it in the first place? For mobile users? There's already a shitty app for mobile, so leave the 'desktop' version as it is.
Why do you have to be a pain in the butt and not at least allow us to select if we want to use NOT handy 'load more' instead of pages?
Basically, I agree with what Martin Eichmann said.
It used to be really easy to edit the descriptions of entries to my watchlist simply by clicking on the description in the edit feature. Now when I hover over this
it just shows the description. I want to change my description for it, but the update isn't helping in conveying what I have to do.
i use it to copy items to other lists
So as much as I appreciate the workaround provided by Parkfly, I hope IMDb restores the original "Edit list" function to Watchlist
When I previously viewed my Watchlist and chose refine, there used to be an "on tv" option, so that I would only see items in my Watchlist that were going to be broadcast in the next few days. That option seems to have disappeared. Any chance it can be put back?
With your new watchlist version, I can not figure out how to do a search for all the shows in my watchlist that will be on TV in the next 3 days. This is a feature I depend on!!!! I have so many shows over several decades in my watchlist that I can't do a TV search for each one. I would never find anything that way. I need my watchlist to search for me. That's the main reason I use IMDB. Then in the process, I come across something I can pay for that isn't on tv, but if you can't provide me with this feature, there is absolutely no reason to even bother with IMDB. So, can you help me? Please? Sharon. P.S.I don't have an Android, a Kindle Fire, an iPhone, iPad, or a Windows Phone. Because, I have a learning disability, I try to keep my life somewhat simple.
I've used this feature on occasion. It sorts out movies through the main watchlist under REFINE. I'm not sure if they have recently updated it, but it's not an option anymore. I noticed that it's still available for a general "keyword" movie search, but I am looking strictly to "refine" my main watchlist.
The title says it all, I am unable to sort my watchlist by release date. Nothing happens when I try to do so. This has been happening since the latest appearance update (as of a couple of days ago, maybe a week or so)
When I click on Watchlist from main page (the heading next to News & Community), it brings up my list of saved titles. But then, when I click the Edit (pencil icon),
THE LIST DISAPPEARS ENTIRELY!
So how am I supposed to select individual titles in order to move them to one of my other lists?
Missing preferences to watchlist:
Earlier there was a function where you could add:
Average rating (between 1 and 10). And Numbers of ratings
with the still existing preferences:
Type of feature
Where to watch
Hope that these options come back
My biggest problem is that you can't drag items to reorder them any more. This made up the majority of the functionality for me as I have a very large watchlist, but I like to keep a "priority" part of the list on the first page for things that I intend to watch soon or keep an eye on during development as opposed to "I'll get to them eventually". I can't easily do this any more.
The next problem is that, whilst I should be able to reorder items with the number feature (even though this is far less user-friendly), this doesn't work. I've tried sitting there, calculating where each new item will shift the numbers and what each number needs to be, only to click on "save reordered list" and for the titles to jump around seemingly randomly. Sometimes, I click it and literally nothing moves. Generally, it will move things, but they'll be 2 or 3 places away from the number I chose. This means that it's impossible to reorder things with any effectiveness.
Another problem is that it's now impossible to add notes for titles on the watchlist, which is really unhelpful. I would often specify a specific season of a TV series or put a reminder that I wanted to watch something because it had a specific actor or DOP or something of that nature.
Yet another problem is the "load more" completeling replacing a "next page" option. I have 1,282 items on my watchlist and it's unreasonable to expect me to sit there loading more over and over again to get to the end of the list rather than being able to skip there.
And finally, the amount of titles loaded up on each page when in edit mode seems to be completely random. It generally starts with 101 per page, then moves to anywhere from 100-253 with reloads and moving onto other pages.
Essentially, this update stinks of yet another website sticking a middle finger up to desktop users of websites and reuining their functionality in favour of appealing to stripped down tablet and phone interfaces. It's ruined this feature for me and it was one of my biggest draws to IMDb.
Before the watchlist update came I could look through my watchlist easily by look at one page at time. But after the "new" watchlist update came all of my movie list is one big list and if I want to see more I have to press load more so often. Sometimes the computer will freeze somewhere in the middle of list and so when you start again there is no way to go to the same place as you where before, instead you have to do it all over again and pressing "load more" hundred times.
Is there some way for me to change this and getting the old easy watchlist with pages or at least can't imdb "fix" this. Because I cant believe that anybody like this more then old one.
