WPMovieLibrary 1.1

Version 1.1 up and running! Some nice features are here now, the most important one being Shortcodes. So what’s been done?


WPMovieLibrary now supports more than 15 shortcodes to make usage of movies data and media; you can fetch pretty much anything related to a movie using its Post ID or title: poster, images, metadata, crew… See full list in the (updated) doc: about shortcodes.

Date and runtime format

You can now specify a custom time and date format to be applied on release dates and runtimes.


Taxonomies archive pages have been updated to use taxonomies, avoiding endless pages with actors in particular.


On a related point, Actors and Collections now show a limited number of terms (the 50 most important ones). You can turn this off in the Widget configuration form.
