Printing a List Without Pictures

Original Post

You can print from edit mode, although this still includes small thumbnail posters.

If
you want to print pure text content from a list then our recommendation
is to export it and print from Excel or Google Docs or any compatible
software.  Click the three dots in the upper right of any list page and
choose "Export" from the menu which appears:



Load
the file into your preferred software and you can pick exactly which
fields to include in the print; much more flexible than any option we
could offer directly in the interface (and with many more data fields
available).

Commonly Used Acronyms

Original Post
  • "GS" or "Get Sat" for Get Satisfaction
  • "ATS" for Advanced Title Search
  • "ANS" for Advanced Name Search
  • "WAB" for Without a Box
There are probably some other uncommon acronyms that might be common around the IMDb community's discussion venues.

Sorting a Title List by Ratings

Original Post

You can use an Advanced Title Search to sort any title list in rating order. If you are logged in, you will see under Lists
Include: a list of your title lists.

1. Select one of your lists under Lists Include.
2. Select User Rating Descending (or other sorting options) under Display Options.
3. Click the yellow Search button.

For example, this is one of my lists sorting in descending order of user ratings:
Highest Rated Titles In Your "All 151 Oscar-Qualifying Documentaries for 2013" List
http://www.imdb.com/search/title?lists=ls052183003&sort=user_rating,desc

Removing Items From an IMDb List

Original Post

I'm assuming that you are doing this from the IMDb web page. This functionality is slightly different for mobile devices.

Please follow these steps to remove a title from a title list.

1. Make certain you are logged into your account.
2. Go to the list page you wish to edit.
3. Click the three vertical dots. Three options should appear:
  • Edit
  • Export
  • Settings
4. Click Edit. You should see the list with check boxes in front of the titles.
5. Click the boxes of the titles you wish to delete. You should see a blue check in those boxes. The links for MOVE TO COPY TO and DELETE should become active.
6. Click DELETE.You should see a dialogue box asking:
Are you sure you want to delete?
7. Click DELETE in the dialogue box. The titles should be deleted from the page.
8. Click the blue DONE button.

Searching for IMDb Lists

Original Post

Until IMDb adds the ability to search for a list with IMDb you can use Google to do this kind of search.

This is the general form to add to the search box:
site:imdb.com/list {search terms}

where {search terms} is word or phrase for which you are searching.

For instance, if you are search for lists related to Christmas.

Enter, this in the Google search box.
site:imdb.com/list Christmas

This produces the link:
https://www.google.com/search?ei=8642WvCdCMvImAHL5a24Dg&q=site%3Aimdb.com%2Flist+Christmas&o...

You,
other IMDb users and I have requested an indigenous IMDb list search
for the last five years. Such a search would be more convenient and
useful. However, this approach works fine in most cases.

If you agree that a list search facility would be useful,
you can indicate your support by clicking the "+LIKE" button
or by posting a reply on the request thread at:
https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/i_think_a_search_engine_for_list_name_is_necessary

Filtering and Sorting Ratings; Compact View of Ratings

Original Post

You can not currently filter your rating on your Ratings page. Fortunately, you can use the Advanced Title Search to filter your ratings.

For instance:
Most Popular Action Titles You Have Seen
http://www.imdb.com/search/title?count=250&genres=action&my_ratings=restrict&view=simple

To filter your ratings:
1. Select Advanced Search from the drop down menu next to the search box on most IMDb pages.

2. On the Advanced Search click Advanced Title Search.

3. On the Advanced Title Search page:
3a. Under Genres select a genre, such as Action.
3b. Under Your Ratings select Restrict to Titles I've Seen.
3c. Under Display Options select your display options. For this example I chose Compact 250 per page sorted by Popularity Ascending.
3d. Click the yellow Search button.

= = =

Admittedly, this is not as convenient as being able to filter on your ratings page. However, this provide similar functionality.

= = =

In Advanced Title Search under Your Ratings you can select:
  • Include All Titles

  • Exclude Titles I've Seen

  • Restrict to Titles I've Seen
"Seen" means titles that you have either rated or marked as seen.

In addition, you can also filter by:
  • Title Type
  • Release Date
  • User Rating (ratings by IMDb users)
  • Number of Votes
  • Genres
  • Title Groups (IMDb defined groups such as IMDb "Top 250")
  • Title Data
  • Companies
  • Instant Watch Options
  • US Certificates
  • Color Info
  • Countries
  • Keywords
  • Languages
  • Filming Locations
  • Popularity
  • Plot
  • Cast/Crew
  • Runtime
  • In Theaters


  • Adult Titles (Exclude or 
    Include)
  • Lists (whether or not the title is in one of your lists)
Finally you can control how the information is displayed.
  • Detailed or Compact
  • 50, 100 or 250 titles per page
You can also select how the titles are sorted:


= = =

Also, on your profile page (http://www.imdb.com/user/ur64640683/), you should still be able to see Ratings Analysis. If you click See more▼ , you will see these distributions:
  • Rating Distribution
  • By Year
  • Top-Rated Genres
  • Top-Rated Years
If you double click one of the bars for By Year, you will see something like this:

Most Popular Titles You Have Seen, Released 1999-01-01 to 1999-12-31
http://www.imdb.com/search/title?my_ratings=restrict&explore=title_type,genres&year=1999,199...


If you double click one of one of the bars for Top-Rated Genres, you will see something like this:
Most Popular Drama Titles You Have Seen
http://www.imdb.com/search/title?my_ratings=restrict&explore=title_type&genres=drama


If you double click one of one of the bars for Top-Rated Years, you will see something like this:


Note: This only works double click on the bars in Ratings Analysis for your own profile page. This does not work for Ratings Analysis for another user's profile page.

3 Options for Viewing a Title List Compactly

Original Post

If all you need is the title, then either Compact view from Advanced Title Search or this bookmarklet, or the Seen functionality described here
give you 3 solutions to viewing a list in short form. (Beware that Seen
will display the full list in 1 page, so a long list will take a long
time to load, and ATS has no option to sort by List Order.)

I, too, miss Compact Mode and hope they bring it back soon, along with drag
& drop order change. But these solutions help me in the meantime.
