    I tested your Plugin and it works very good. I received a "XLM-File", but I have problems with the "XLS-File".

    The Movielist on your Homepage looks very fine. Can you please upload the nesasary files to have the same result?

    Thank you very mutch! :D

    Ok let me try this again. Just follow everything exactly here, and you shouldn't have a problem.

    1. Download movingpicturesxml - Google Code .
    2. Install this .dll to: C:\Program Files\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\plugins\process\
    3. Open MP Config, go to plugins, and under "Processes" you will see the XML plugin you just installed from LRF. You can click config. It's your choice on uploading it by FTP to a webserver or not, but all his plugin will do is create and XML file of your Moving Pictures database, and store it locally OR on the webserver (actually, or both if you check both boxes!). Please change the name of the file to: "movies.xml". I'm going to assume you have a sever, so let's make sure you FTP the file to your server in a folder called "movies".
    4. If you want to make your site look like mine ( Body of Lies ) You'll have to do a couple things. First thing is inside that config panel. Click the "Link to XSL file" box at the bottom. The address you'll want to enter is the address to your XSL file (which I'll get to in a second). I suggest just calling this "movies.xsl", and later putting this xsl file in the same folder on your server ("movies").
    5. At this point, you simple open up your "movies.xml" file that LRF's plugin created and uploaded to your "movies" folder on your server. If the XSL file exists, along with any other CSS and Javascript plugins you may have, then you're page will look exactly like mine.

    To make life easier, I've included a ZIP file of the XSL file, javascript, and CSS files all structured correctly so that all you need to do is configure your plugin correctly (as stated above) to add the moving pics XML from LRF's plugin to this directory, and open it, and everything will work. Finally, there is also an index.php file included in this zip. This means that all you have to do is link to this directory, and the php file will redirect you instantly to your movies.xml file. Exactly how my page is working.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks! :D

    Now everything works fine! :D

    I think your post will also help some others to get the plugin working.


    How can I add a Search-Field like on "LRFalk01´s Moviepage"?

    I can see that this is picking up some interest. I will write up a how-to tonight. I will also include on this the addition of table sorting and a details_url link.
