AllMovie title at AllMovie

Documentation icon Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template is used to generate an external link to a web page at AllMovie (formerly known as All Movie Guide and AllRovi). It should be used only for films and television series; to link to a person (actor, director, etc.) use {{AllMovie name}} instead.

Usage

Unnamed parameters:

  • {{AllMovie title | ID }}
  • {{AllMovie title | ID | TITLE }}
  • {{AllMovie title | ID | TITLE | tab= TAB }}

Named parameters:

  • {{AllMovie title | id= ID }}
  • {{AllMovie title | id= ID | title= TITLE }}
  • {{AllMovie title | id= ID | title= TITLE | tab= TAB }}

Instructions

  1. Search AllMovie for the film title you want, and click on the correct link to go to that film's page.
  2. The page URL should look like this:
    http://www.allmovie.com/movie/this-is-the-title-v######
    or http://www.allmovie.com/movie/v######
    where "######" indicates a number. (If it doesn't, there should be a message under the film's title which says "wrong Result? more matches HERE"; click on this link and reselect the desired film from the list.)
  3. Copy only that number. Add the following text to the External links section:
    * {{AllMovie title | ###### | TITLE }}
    or * {{AllMovie title | id= ###### | title= TITLE }}
    where ###### is the number you've copied,
    and TITLE is the title of the film (default is the article's name.)
  4. Optional: add the parameter |tab= to link to a different page (tab) in a film's entry. Choices are: overview, cast-crew, review, awards, releases. Leaving the parameter empty will link to the overview.
