This RC1 implements pretty much everything planned for version 2.0, even though some features will be simpler than what we originally intended them to be. Version 2.0 brings a lot of changes in terms of internal mechanic as well as backend and frontend display, so we’d better lower our objectives to make sure everything goes smooth in the transition between version 1.x and version 2.0; features will follow up in future updates!

Make backups before updating!
We’ve been saying this a lot lately, but it’s crucial that you test this new version before going live, and make backups of your database and files. Version 2.0 brings important changes that you want to test before anything.

That being said, here’s a non-exhaustive list of the features and improvements brought by v2:

  • Complete reboot of the Settings Panel
  • Movies available in search results
  • Coutry names and languages translated
  • Flags for production countries
  • Metadata sorting and querying
  • Movies Grid view
  • Dedicated icon font
  • Updated Admin Bar menu and metabox in editor
  • List movies by metadata in Movies Widget
  • New Language, Subtitles and Video Format details
  • New Certification, Adult, Budget, Revenue, Tagline and Homepage metadata

Final version should be available next week when we’re done looking for bugs. Stay tuned!


      1. first i want to thank

        but i also want say this
        the front end is not looking good now, the small buttons for details are now more hidden small actually which is most likely that person wont even see it.
        but the preview in back end looks good, if the same style would be in front end as well that would be great.

        please do some work on front end theme styling

    1. Hi asakereh,

      We haven’t had the time yet to make a list of compatible theme’s, but that’s on the TODO list. We test the plugin with the 10-15 most popular themes on WordPress.org, so there’s a good compatibility with those themes; we can’t really run effective tests on premium themes, we just have reports from users and sometime themes’ archives to test, but that’s not very helping (users don’t bother telling us what actually works, so we barely know what doesn’t work!). We hope to implement tracking on a future release to gather more compatibility information and build a list of compatible themes. You can find a basic list of what we’ve established so far here: http://wpmovielibrary.com/documentation/compatibility/
