PKs Movie Database ================== This library allows you to create a dynamic view of ANT's movie database. author Michael Shepanski <email@example.com> copyright Copyright © 2005-2006, Michael Shepanski license Creative Commons - http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.5 version Version 3.0 (2007.01.06) First, credit should be given to Antp over at http://www.antp.be/about/contact for creating Ant's Movie Catalog. Nothing you see below would be possible without the hard work he dumped into his application. Also, Kazdor from the antp.be forums was tremendous in both debugging and helping to add many of the great features which currently exist in this application. REQUIREMENTS ------------ 1. PHP4+ 2. MySQL Server 4.1+ 3. ANT Movie Catalog export to a MySQL Database 4. At least some knowledge of standard HTML and PHP processes. INSTRUCTIONS ------------ 1. Download ANT Movie Catalog to build your movie database. 2. Put these files someplace on your webserver. 3. Open mdb_config.inc to review and edit all the options you have available. 4. Export your Movie Database as SQL, check the option for include images. 5. Import the SQL into your MySQL Database on the server, and upload the images to the server. NOTE: A new *experimental* option is available in Version3.0 of this script that can auto import your movie database if a .sql file is found within your configured 'ant_export_dir' and you have 'auto_import' set to TRUE. 4. Add the following code to the page you want this script to be displayed. Don't forget to also include the style sheet within the header of your HTML file to get the stylesheet link you can use the function $moviedb->get_stylesheet(). require_once('mdb3.php'); $moviedb = new MDB3(); print $moviedb->get_html(); NOTE 1.) YOU SHOULD NOT NEED TO EDIT THIS FILE AT ALL UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING. :) NOTE 2.) Call this file in your web browser to display a basic styled moviedb. You can see the code for this usage at the very bottom of this file. SUPPORT ------- Current support and help on using this script should be asked on the forum at the following link. Please do not email me with support question, I simply don't have the time to answer everyone. http://forum.antp.be/phpbb2/viewforum.php?f=16&sid=2e29bcde798893fcb2cf40178bec9ba3 LICENSE ------- Copyright � 2006-2007 PK-Designs, Some Rights Reserved.

ATTRIBUTION ----------- If you plan to use this code on any site you own or help create, you must site the author M. Shepanski along with a link back to PK-Designs.com ON THE WEBPAGE (not backend code). Like most designers, I too do not like to include random links to someone's site when I use their script. Because of this I do not require that you include this link right near where the script is used on your page, but rather just mentioned on your site someplace; perhaps the disclaimer, or about page. Not required, but it is always nice to hear from people who find my work useful to them. If you wish, drop me a line so I can see how you implemented this script on your site.
