Title pages — new version available for sneak peek

IMDb is working on updates to the Title page. The new version of the page is mobile-responsive, meaning all features are available on devices of all sizes, and has a modern look and feel — otherwise it maintains all the functionality of the current page, though some features have moved on the page.

The new version of the page is available to a limited group of fans during a beta period. During the beta, some features are still under construction, and you may encounter bugs.

UPDATE: now available!

  1. Please move the genre, language, and country of origin at the top instead of the bottom.
  2. Please move Season & Episode numbering to the top.
  3. Bury the Ads, Shrink them substantially, or we will switch to open sources like thetvdb or omdb.
  4. Add more left margin, it's too cramped to left edge.
  5. Other than the above, the broader use of space, smaller margins, larger cast photos and increased padding contribute to a cleaner look but only if you shrink and move right sidebar farther away so it doesn't cramp the main content.

I tried your questionair page and clicked on Report an issue, was differrent or missing and then next and I got the message that my question was sent to you.....

My remark would have been that I miss the year, but now I see that that is already noted.

One other thing is that I changed emailadress and the old login ID with email adress has become obsolete

Looks good. But there needs to be a dark theme for the whole page.

I haven't actually read all the comments on this topic. But if I may say something anyway, I'm kinda dissatisfied with the new title page outlook. I'll try to be as factual as possible, so I avoid sounding harsh. What I'm telling now is just due to my experience.

- One of the things I don't really like are the big, circle actor/actress pictures that take much space and are...just too big to my taste. I actually like the old list version better, and please let us just have that.

- When I'm searching for a company, a keyword or anything else, I only get matches for titles and actors/actresses, which I did not search for. I hope that gets fixed if we are automatically thrown into the new version.

- When I click on the button that's supposed to take you to alternate titles for other countries, the release dates are the only thing that shows up. I hope that gets fixed if we are automatically thrown into the new version.

- If I was gonna add or read parental guidances on the new version, no information but numbers of content is shown, unless I click on any of any content like sex, violence or anything else, then I could add or read. Couldn't that feature just stay the same like it's on the old version?

- The "All Topics" button did kinda confuse me little bit, but I got kinda used to it fast.

- Other great informations, such as durations, genres and a certification that used to be on the top of the page in the old version, are all far down on the new version. I'd really wish for those small informations to get moved to the top like they are on the old version.

So in other words, this is just an another feature no one asked for, according to what other users have already said.

Everything I've said are the reasons I mostly use the old version when it's still available. This version is so easy as it could get, and I would really wish for the entire IMDb to just stay like that, even with some updates. Additionally, I'd really wish for the permanent option to use the old or the new version, and various preferences, depending on the user's choice. I basically love the IMDb very much and can't really live without it, and I use it a lot, but I only use it on desktop PC, not on smartphone. And using IMDb on a mobile device is not gonna happen for me.

So dear IMDb, I hope I didn't sound harsh, but these are just my own complains.

Sincirely, Chribren. :-)

I understand that IMDB wants to streamline the browser and mobile functionality into a single thing... While I suppose it is to some extent economically straining to keep up multiple platforms, my issue with this is simple: It undermines the user experience, as desktops&laptops are a very different thing from "smart" devices. When I am on my computer, I want to access a proper webpage, not one "streamlined" for less-capable devices with information crammed into a smaller space. The requirements just are not the same.

I'm already fed up with console games ported to computers suffering from the handicaps of their console origins (controls and user interface), and of operating systems hamstrung by the needs of being able to work on both a computer and a mobile device but seemingly primarily aimed for the latter while being forced on the former (Win8 in its time).

If it isn't broken, DON'T "FIX" IT just for the sake of appearing "more modern and dynamic". Facebook is an excellent example of a service provider that has constantly worsened the user experience trying to reinvent themselves, and is now barely usable (never mind their other issues). Please don't follow them!

Adding OPTIONAL layouts for people who don't like the current one is of course okay, but you'll just have to bite the bullet of not being "100% economically streamlined". If it is a question of remaining viable or shutting down, well, guess you'll do whatever you must anyway and I'd rather have a gutted, ugly service than no service at all, but I do want to voice my opinion.

Not a fan of this new layout at all.  What was wrong with the current one?  It's much better as a compact view.  When everything is spread out like this new layout with no clear sections, it just becomes a nuisance to navigate.  The cast needs to be a list view.  Why have them in bigger fields with big circles for photos?  It takes up too much space and is less easier to follow.  The current view is much better because it's compact and more easily split into sections which you need for a page which holds a lot of information.

Hi!

In this anime episode (Horimiya episode 1.2) I can not find the Review section. No one reviewed it before, so it is understandable that I can't find it easily. Anyway I reported the issued but, selecting the option "something is missing", I was not able to specify what is missing. Hopefully writing this here is the right thing to do.

Have a  nice day!

Okay, just for a summary before I get into my case. Earlier I wrote this on one of my previous posts on this topic:

- When I'm searching for a company, a keyword or anything else, I only get matches for titles and actors/actresses, which I did not search for. I hope that gets fixed if we are automatically thrown into the new version.

- When I click on the button that's supposed to take you to alternate titles for other countries, the release dates are the only thing that shows up. I hope that gets fixed if we are automatically thrown into the new version.

Now I really know why this happens: The IMDb system sometimes forces me into the mobile version. Are you serious? I'm using desktop PC, not a mobile device. So please, let not only me, but others decide what version to use: Either the www-version or the mobile (m) version.

I'm 100% sure a lot of IMDb users know this from before since the beginning, but I feel I have to tell this anyway. Since bderoes asked me to post links if I should find anything, now I found pretty much, so now I can put up links with pleasure. This is also for anyone new to this topic.

I searched for a keyword featuring the word "blood", and the website should look like this:

https://www.imdb.com/find?s=kw&q=Blood&ref_=nv_sr_sm

The mobile version that only has titles and actors with "blood" on the name, but not keywords, is here:

https://m.imdb.com/find?s=kw&q=Blood&ref_=nv_sr_sm

And so, whenever I search for a company, let's say Universal Pictures to name an example, the website should look like this:

https://www.imdb.com/find?s=co&q=Universal+Pictures&ref_=nv_sr_sm

The mobile version doesn't have the company and only has titles with similar names, and looks like this:

https://m.imdb.com/find?s=co&q=Universal+Pictures&ref_=nv_sr_sm

The desktop version of "Parents guide" looks like this:

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt11146230/parentalguide?ref_=tt_stry_pg

while the tiresome mobile version looks like this:

https://m.imdb.com/title/tt11146230/parentalguide?ref_=tt_stry_pg

For Alternate titles, the desktop version is the thing, using "Kill Bill : Vol. 1" as an example:

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0266697/releaseinfo?ref_=tt_dt_dt#akas

Not this mobile version that only shows release dates:

https://m.imdb.com/title/tt0266697/releaseinfo?ref_=tt_dt_dt#akas

So sometimes when I search for a keyword, a company, or even titles and anything else, I sometimes get automatically thrown to the mobile version, so I must change the M to WWW several times. And that is just tiresome. So please, just let me just keep the WWW version, and stop automatically throwing me into the mobile version. And just like I said earlier: Using the IMDb on a mobile device is not gonna happen for me, as I'm only sticking with my PC. And I'm not going outdoors and public areas (cafes, workplaces, etc.) just to look at my iPhone with internet, because I have a goal whenever I'm outside my home, just to have that said: Meeting friends, doing librarian works, eating lunch, shopping, etc.

Anyway, I'm sorry if I sound harsh. Thank you.

Sincirely, Chribren.

An absolutely HORRENDOUS Desktop website 'redesign!', clunky, blocky, sluggish, massive tiled interface, all obviously dumbed down and made to look like a 'phone screen' for f'inger pointing', it looks like its been designed for toddlers! this then inflicted onto Desktop users looking for a more advanced user experience. Completely UNUSABLE on DESKTOP!.

As soon as that absolite GARBAGE is inflicted onto Desktop users im DONE with IMDB!

Okay, I know this design is still being sorted out, but some links on the main title page aren't working right or link to a mobile-designed page (with the m in the link), and on external sites the links aren't working. 

I hope this gets sorted out as fast as possible.

Despite using two columns for cast, where it was one previously, the spacing means there is an awful lot of scrolling to see all the page content.

I'm disappointed with two aspects I use on every film I see. Check-in and rating. Check-in used to be a mouse-over, and one click. Now it's a click - but not obvious where, followed by a second click, but not obvious where. Definitely a backward step.

Rating would show you how many stars you were about to give something, before you committed. Now you have to carefully count before you click - hardly progress! :-(

I stopped going to the main page because the page, all the information seems very large and zoomed in. It's ridiculous. I have my bookmark for IMDB set to the News section because I can't stand how big everything is on the page. The scrolling right to left is fine I guess. Going to the new pages for TV Shows/Movies is like going on to a social media site now. The cast looks like you're scrolling through someone's facebook and they are the friends. Old layout was perfectly fine. Everything could be found without scrolling a page and a half. It's too busy, too much information on the front page. Like, I don't mind clicking on something to read more about it. It just looks really silly and cluttered.
