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

Usage[change source]

Related pages[change source]

This is a template to generate links to Internet Movie Database, used exclusively for EVENTS.

To link a work (film/movie, TV or Web program/series, video game, etc.), use {{IMDb title}} instead.
To link a person (actor, actress, etc.), use {{IMDb name}} instead.
To link a specific TV episode or Web series episode, use {{IMDb episode}} instead.
To link an episode list, use {{IMDb episodes}} instead.
To link a character, use {{IMDb character}} instead.

Options[change source]

The required parameter is just the ID number (for backward compatibility, the parameter can be named id) and the template then uses the article title as the anchor text:

* {{IMDb event|ID}}

To have the link text be other than the article name, use second parameter (for backward compatibility, it can be named name):

* {{IMDb event|ID|Event}}

Note that the options include the "*" for a bulleted list since this is most likely to be used in an "External links" section.

Detailed instructions[change source]

  1. Copy and paste one of the options above into the article
  2. Go to https://www.imdb.com and search for the event you want (say, MTV Movie Awards)
  3. You then reach the page with URL looking like https://www.imdb.com/event/ev0000453/ (or other 7-digit number)
  4. Copy only that number (here, "0005073"), omitting the "ev" but keep all the leading zeros (though IMDb currently seems to be able to add them as needed)
  5. Replace "ID" in the template code with the number
    1. For the first option above, you'll then have
      * {{IMDb event|0000453}} resulting in:
      Note that the link text is the same as the title of the page the template is used on; outside the page "MTV Movie Awards", use the second option:
    2. Replace "ID" with the number and "Event" with "MTV Movie Awards"
      * {{IMDb event|0000453|MTV Movie Awards}} results in:
