Updates to List Pages

Today (Dec 6) we are announcing an update to the List pages on the IMDb desktop experience. This update is part of the broader site changes announced recently (https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/upcoming-changes-to-several-imdb-features-du6man1opd5q0). After in-depth discussion and examination, we have decided to simplify the features and functionality for lists. We have merged “compact view” and list editing into a single Edit experience. In that one view, you can now modify your text and add, copy, delete and move items. We have also pulled List actions (edit, export, settings) together into a 1-click menu (the 3 vertical dots on the top right of the page). You will now also find two new options in the Refine menu: ‘In Theaters’ and ‘Keywords.’  Tech constraints on the new system prohibit us from continuing to support drag-and-drop from the Edit view; we appreciate your understanding. For more information about Lists, see the IMDb Help Center.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled How can I revert to the old list format?.

At the moment when I add a movie to my list I get a "title was successfully added to your list"; it's sent straight to the end of the list and does not remain on the page. I can't even edit the order manually. Is there a way I can revert to the old list format, or should I just wait for some update?

People are reporting they can edit position manually, but it is tedious. Here's what works: either reverse the sort order to make that last item show at the top of the list, or navigate to the last page of your list by altering the URL to include &page= the number.

Then you have to know the position number where the title goes, knowing it will go BEFORE the position you choose. Then navigate to the top of the list and Save List Order.

Take it one at a time, or consider carefully the impact of moving several at once. For instance, moving a title to position 3 and another to position 7 has different results depending on whether the titles being moved were in the 1-7 range to begin with.

Hopefully IMDb will improve the change position functionality, but you aren't completely stuck right now.

Please report specifics if this does not work for you.

@watchinglotsofstuff:  $alary? No thanks. I can imagine unfollowing some of these threads soon.

At this time, I only care about aspects of the site that enhance my current hobby project. I want the List functionality to be useful to me and others.

I don't want people to be frustrated unnecessarily, so I post suggestions to how they can get what they want/need with current features.

I don't want people bashing List functionality, especially not because they have misconceptions. Bashing is different than reporting bugs and making suggestions explained with potential usage.

Basically I hope that IMDb wants to make Lists into a superb feature. If the customer feedback makes it seem more negative than it's worth (like message boards?), they might decide to pull the plug. 

I like old movies, and believe me, the data in the TCM "database" is laughably less than what we have at IMDb. Here's my current litmus test: do they list the choreographer or dance director in the the cast/crew of movies that had such personnel? I haven't found it anywhere but here.

What will it take to make you put the "add new" field for lists at the *top* of the page (in desktop version)? Scrolling to the bottom is tedious. Also, why does the list of suggestions (when adding a title to a list) no longer show images? It's impossible to know if you're adding the right version (when there are several identical titles).

Hi Lillan K.

I'm conflicted about the idea of having the addition box at the top of the list page. When you navigate to the end of the list and add from there, you see the title added immediately and can edit its description and position. (Adding from any other page does not provide that benefit, of course.) 

For your application, and for reordering lists, and for moving/copying items, using the Previous/Next links, I'm wondering if a floating menu that allows us to click to reach the TOP or BOTTOM of the page would alleviate a lot of the scrolling frustrations. I have no idea how easy it is to implement such a thing, and I hope it wouldn't be too distracting, but I see it on other sites for quick access to social media accounts and chat activation, etc.

It's time for me to update my Bug and Suggestion lists; I'll add

Suggestion 18. list edit: floating menu to take us to the move/copy/reorder options at the TOP or to the navigation/add title at the BOTTOM of the edit page

If you feel that you'd still want an addition box at the top of the page, let me know and I'll add that too.

So far as the search within edit mode showing images with the titles: are you talking about the desktop version of the site, because that wasn't happening before the Update, and it would make the dropdown quite long. Here's an idea: after I've put in my title and scanned the most likely results, I'd love an option to open the full search results in a new tab, and that would perform the same search as we get from the search box on every page.

Suggestion 19: list edit, add title: as part of the drop-down results, provide a link that would show full search results in a new tab, namely the same results we'd get from the search box at the top of every page.

Well, a browser extension or addon could be created, published and installed to serve those somewhat trivial functions.

Jeorj: 

I'm being pretty specific.

For Sug 18, I'm saying go to the move/copy/reorder row, not the top of the whole page, and go to the page nav/add title location, not the bottom of the whole page. The difference being a potentially lengthy list description area at the top, and all the goodies IMDb provides (and I sometimes use) at the bottom.

For Sug 19, I'm expecting the search RESULTS to come back, and apparently not the results provided by the add title algorithm, but the results provided by the "normal" search.

If your statement stands, and was meant to indicate that you think it's easy programming, excellent.

But since running extra scripts can become the cause or the scapegoat for things not working properly, I'm not going to lobby for someone outside of IMDb to get busy.

Most of my interaction with the site is through bookmarkets and "monkey" scripts. Some matters are easier to be dealt without waiting for IMDb developers to fix the site.

@bderoes:  Regarding your #18: I'm quite able to use the keyboard End/Home keys to get to the end of a page, but it's still one extra click, when they could easily include the Search/add field  *both* on top and at the bottom, without any need for floating menus or whatever.  It would fit nicely just below "List Title" and "List Description" at the top.



I make list of watched movies every year and it usually includes 120-150 titles. Since the page cut-off is 100 list items, I don't see newly added items directly anyway (unless I reverse the sort). It should be simple enough to make  a function that lets you skip directly to the newly added item, if needed?

Regarding #19:  It most definitely worked this way before. When adding a title to a list (on desktop - I'm only ever using imdb on desktop)  you entered the name in the search field, hit "Search" and you would be presented with a list of suggestions, which included an image thumbnail and also an indication of what type of title it was (movie, TV Series, short etc.). This was super helpful.  Now, to find the right title, you have to know which year it was released (and I have no idea what you're supposed to do  if there are two works released the same year with the same title).  To see which title you picked you have to add it to the list - only then do you get to see the thumbnail image & type. If you picked the wrong one, you have to delete and try again - extremely cumbersome for something that should be  (and used to be) very simple!

There are some not too advanced workarounds for both of these things (Home/End button for the first one and a right-click+open in new tab for the second one), but I'm annoyed that seemingly basic functionality was left out of the interface. We shouldn't have to find workarounds for how to easily find the right title to add to a list!  I could possibly live without an image thumbnail if I have to, but then at least show us the category in the search results!

Hi, Lillan K

Regarding add title placement on the page: Yes, the add title box on both top and bottom sounds like a good idea, as did
Suggestion 5: Edit mode: need page navigation and Done button on top and bottom of each page.
Suggestion 6: Edit mode: need copy to, move to, delete and Save List Order on top and bottom of each page.
But once you've entered 10 or more lines for list description, and double navigation, and double add boxes, plus the big Ad atop the page, that's a lot of scrolling just to see the first title on the page. 

My list of suggestions is supposed to represent what everyone requested, so I'll make your request #18: Edit mode, place a duplicate Add Title box at the top of the page, and make mine #19: Edit mode, provide floating menu to take us to the move/copy/reorder options near the TOP or to the navigation/add title near the BOTTOM of the edit page, not to the physical top and bottom of the page.

Regarding the (former) #19, in addition to a lot of other list building, I had spent the 2 days just prior to the Dec 6 Update building a 577 title list using the Add box in the old Edit mode, and the dropdown once you hit Search definitely listed titles without images. After the update, I was startled by the new dropdown, because it started making suggestions while I typed, and they were blue instead of black, and the font was bigger so many titles were wrapping to 2 lines. Plus they're blue because they are active links, which they were not on Dec 5.

I always found the Add Title search inadequate to resolve conflicts (as you describe), especially because it didn't present the same results as the full search from the box atop every IMDb page, when you click for the full results. (The Add Title results are even worse now, omitting short films and TV episodes. I'm pretty sure they're working on that.) That box atop every page currently presents images in the dropdown of suggestions. My (former #19) was a brainstorm regarding my frequent need to see the full list of choices before being able to choose, and I don't like having to re-enter my search. 

I won't publish the Suggestions list for a while in case you want to want to revise #18. Sounds like you'd also like to see #21 Edit, Add title, show thumbnail image with title matches, and make results box bigger to accommodate that.

@Jeorj: I'm aware of the "monkey"s (and use one script), but I only became aware of bookmarklets recently. Is there a good clearinghouse for them? Or do you grow your own. (I don't speak JS. Don't even read it, really.)

I write my own, and I'm quite uncertain of a good clearinghouse as of the time. However, as I understand it, David-CG has been into this stuff for a little longer than I have been. This subscriber may be hosting some useful tools.

I've not made up my mind where to publish the scripts or bookmarklets I use. (If there is a really short one, then I will just post it directly to the forum.) I'd like to test them thoroughly first, for one thing. I also have concerns about portability across multiple browsers, when I only really use two browser makes. I've not thoroughly familiarized myself with jQuery syntax yet, which I know to be an important thing to know as far as Web development goes (as AJAX operations are carried out in different ways in different browsers). Learning the syntax of a language is of course rarely the hard part but rather learning how to make effective use of the function libraries and having an awareness of how the compiler software (or interpreter software) may optimize the source code or executable code. I'm mostly willing to teach myself any scripting or programming language.

OK allow me to further illustrate how terrible no compact mode is (at least for the author).  Say you're making a grocery list online.  You had the following list:

1. Milk
2. A Dozen Eggs
3. Brand X Bread
4. Head of Lettuce
5. Tomatos
6. Brand X Bacon
7. Brand X Detergent
8. Brand X Soap
9. Brand X Shampoo
10. Brand X Toothpaste

Simple because you know what the items are and can see it all on one small page.  Now with the current layout you have the following list:

1. Milk - an opaque white fluid rich in fat and protein, secreted by female mammals for the nourishment of their young.


2. A dozen eggs - an oval or round object laid by a female bird, reptile, fish, or invertebrate, usually containing a developing embryo. The eggs of birds are enclosed in a chalky shell, while those of reptiles are in a leathery membrane.



3. Bread - food made of flour, water, and yeast or another leavening agent, mixed together and baked.



4. Head of lettuce - a cultivated plant of the daisy family, with edible leaves that are a usual ingredient of salads. Many varieties of lettuce have been developed with a range of form, texture, and color.



5. Tomatoes - a glossy red, or occasionally yellow, pulpy edible fruit that is typically eaten as a vegetable or in salad.  the South American plant of the nightshade family that produces this fruit. It is widely grown as a cash crop, and many varieties have been developed.



Click to page 2 (because only 5 results per page)

etc. etc. etc.

Now you could want to have that option just to make sure you have the correct item but in compact mode you mostly know what you want when you go to the store (and even if you don't you can just quickly right click on the item, open in new tab to see detailed descriptions/pictures).  In addition say you wanted to know what order you had them in using only the above image/description display...  and say that list wasn't just 10 but 100 or 1,000.  You don't need all that information or huge pictures.

Anyway hope this illustration drives home my point how annoying and awful no compact mode is (not just to make you hungry either).  If IMDB can at least allow 250 results per page compact mode viewing for the author that would be fine.

The following is a bookmarklet (or script code prefixed with a out-syntax scheme identifier) which, when used on an IMDb list page (for titles or persons), will toggle the display in such a way as to render a compact view of sorts.
javascript:
(
function()
{
var d=document,c,
ml=/^\/list\/ls\d+(\/.*|$)/,
s="{display:none}",
el=/\/other-2848344672\._CB514892132_\.css$/,
ei="compact-view-style-sheet-rudimentary";
if(!ml.test(location.pathname))
return;
if(!d.compacted)
c=[true,
".lister-item-image"+s+"\n"+
".ratings-bar"+s+"\n"+
".text-small"+s+"\n"+
"p"+s+"\n"+
".wtw-option-standalone"+s+"\n"+
""
];
else
c=[false,""];
var e=d.getElementsByTagName("link"),i;
for(i=0;i<e.length;i++)
if(el.test(e[i].href))
{e[i].disabled=c[0];break}
var e=d.getElementById(ei);
if(!e)
{
e=d.createElement("style");
e.id=ei;
d.head.appendChild(e)
}
e.innerHTML=c[1];
d.compacted=c[0]
}
)
()
If you know what a bookmarklet is, then you already know what to do, otherwise to "install" the tool, you would highlight the aforementioned source code (a JavaScript URI), copy it (to the clipboard) and paste it into URL field of a browser bookmark, whether already existing or newly created.

To use a bookmarklet, you "visit" it while having the particular webpage (in all of the Web) as the active tab in your browser. You don't need to understand JavaScript or any scripting language to use a bookmarklet.

The properly-encoded URI for that same source code is javascript:(function()%7Bvar%20d=document,c,ml=/%5E%5C/list%5C/ls%5Cd+(%5C/.*%7C$)/,s=%22%7Bdisplay:none%7D%22,el=/%5C/other-2848344672%5C._CB514892132_%5C.css$/,ei=%22compact-view-style-sheet-rudimentary%22;if(!ml.test(location.pathname))return;if(!d.compacted)c=%5Btrue,%22.lister-item-image%22+s+%22%5Cn%22+%22.ratings-bar%22+s+%22%5Cn%22+%22.text-small%22+s+%22%5Cn%22+%22p%22+s+%22%5Cn%22+%22.wtw-option-standalone%22+s+%22%5Cn%22+%22%22%5D;else%20c=%5Bfalse,%22%22%5D;var%20e=d.getElementsByTagName(%22link%22),i;for(i=0;i%3Ce.length;i++)if(el.test(e%5Bi%5D.href))%7Be%5Bi%5D.disabled=c%5B0%5D;break%7Dvar%20e=d.getElementById(ei);if(!e)%7Be=d.createElement(%22style%22);e.id=ei;d.head.appendChild(e)%7De.innerHTML=c%5B1%5D;d.compacted=c%5B0%5D%7D)(), by the way. I previously presented this with line breaks and indentation to make it easier to read and thereby easier to understand, which in turn helps a semi-experienced individual screen it for malicious script behavior and errors in the flow of control that could unintentionally cause problems with resource allocation on any computer on which it is executed, meaning that trusting me would not be requisite for understanding that the script is safe.

It's unfortunate that the collection of instructions for the script could not be fewer or shorter. (This one is 610 characters long, decoded.) I try to avoid posting scripts that are this long, but under the circumstances (with so many users complaining and pleading), I decided to go ahead. Think of it only as a temporary fix, as official proper solutions are rolled out in the coming months.

Thanks Jeorj Euler appreciate the effort.  I might give that a try but I'm not too familiar with coding and bookmarklet.  Its ridiculous we have to go to these lengths to require features that were fine to begin with.  I haven't browsed any lists since the change only to see if they gave the compact mode back.

Hi Jeorj. I tried your script, at first got no results.

I copy/pasted the readable version first, and when that had no effect on the title page I chose, I copy/pasted the compressed version. Same thing - until I noticed that copy had picked up a comma at the end. When I deleted that, the script worked.

To get the original version of the list back (decided I wanted to read some details, or refine it differently), I just refreshed the page.

Thank you! Easier than pasting the list id into another URL.

From the perspective of somebody with almost 7k reviews, let me say that I will tone down my review activity on imdb in the coming weeks to probably zero in the next months. If you give me easy access to my work, then I will be happy to return at some point, but I won't click 800 times to see my complete review history since the beginning, which I have to at this point and with every new review the number increases. I know that by sending a review, you withdraw all your rights to said review to imdb and I can live with that, but that you make it impossible for the more/most prolific writers to even gain access to their work is a negative deal breaker for me. If it needs to be and seemingly it does, then I say bye to imdb and may you get lucky with all your changes. I won't be an active part of that anymore though.

Un Chien Andalou (1929) is a great surrealist film and some would say it is the most important surrealist film of all time!

So it's a real pity that I can't add it to my recommended movies list!

This is yet another example of how the recent changes to the system have ruined everything.

To say I'm disappointed is the understatement of the year.

How will IMDB be ruined next? Don't bother finding out, JUMP SHIP!!!

Andy: There is a way to add Un chien andalou to one of your lists.

Go to the page for the film at http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0020530/.

To the left of the title, you should see a chevron-like symbol with a plus sign (circled in red by me in the illustration below). Hover the cursor over the plus sign and you should see a list below that of all your lists. Click on the name of the list you want to add the film to, and it will be added to that list.



Notwithstanding this, I agree with you that it should be possible to add the film to the list by starting from the list page.

I hope this helps. Good luck!

Good news: you can still add it using the title id, namely tt4545982.
Also, I believe IMDb is working on getting short films and tv episodes working properly in the Add Title box of Edit mode. Don't know about supporting URL's there, although it would be nice.

Also, if you were willing to view the title page in standard mode, controlled in Site Settings:
uncheck  "Always display full cast and crew credits" (I think you have this one on)
uncheck  "Show reference view (old title/name page layout)"
then you could also add to a list directly from the Title page, because you would see something like this next to the title when you mouseover the bookmark(+) icon:

Please re-incorporate 'Your Rating' into exported lists!!!

Upon opening the spreadsheet, I've noticed this column is no longer there, and it was highly useful for calculating averages. Now, no such thing is possible without the terrible task of adding ratings up one by one!

ME TOO (As Charlize Theron would say). These graphs for years, ratings, number of votes were lovely. Also star-meter and date of birth for people's lists are necessary.
Yesterday, I made 10 new entries in a list of 300 tiltes and tried to put them in the correct (chronological) order. ... Don't ask. It wasn't easy. If you move an entry from position 120 to 110 it works. If you move it from 110 to 120, it will go to 119. In the previous system if you wanted to enter a new item in Page 2 you would go there, the item appeared at the bottom of page and you could drag and drop it where you want. Now it will appear at the end, e.g. at position 1001, you'll have to go there and enter a position e.g. 162 you cannot see anymore.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Anybody else having problems editing their lists? I no longer can change my list ....

I've been creating a long list of ranking movies, and now I can't change the order of the films I add to the list. Anything added only goes to the bottom of the list and cannot be moved to a different location in the list. I've tried edits on multiple devices, so I know it isn't the computer I am using. Is anybody else having this issue? Anybody have suggestions on how to fix it?

I just Edited my list of 1781 titles, and moved the last entry to position 1681. HOWEVER, it did NOTHING if I left the comma in the number. It ONLY moved when I deleted the comma.

IMDb: THIS IS A PREVIOUSLY REPORTED BUG. WILL YOU FIX THIS?

We have written & tested a fix for this; if all goes to plan it will go live later today, however, it could be delayed due to the holidays.

Col, is there going to be a fix for editing?  As of now, we can't move list items from one position to another as we used to, only type in the number of the position we want to moved to, click edit and see how it looks, having to edit again if it needs changing. As you can imagine, making new lists, where you've got to move dozens if not hundreds of items around, will be absolutely chaos unless it goes back to the way it was.

I need a 1 line, very compact view!! The new way lists are presented I cannot use at all, and I have now stopped using the site. Bye!
