Jim, as discussed in this thread, the old company pages were removed, but a search feature is planned to replace them.

I do miss the ability to look at a smaller film company's output. The BFI announced a Woodfall Films Blu-ray collecton recently. I went to look to see what the other Woodfall titles were but, of course, the IMDb would not let me. I could find them on the BFI databse but it seems daft that such a list is also available on the IMDb but non IMDb-pro users are excluded from looking at it.

Hey Col, how long do we have to wait for those company filmography pages to come up and not for IMDb pro? I have being waiting and waiting patiently to finally see the IMDb pages for companies' filmography for days and I am so sick and tired of getting IMDb Pro on them. We need answers now on why this taking so freakin long man!

Why do we immediately need answers, Alex Hartsell? What are the stakes at hand? At any rate, I'd reckon (or rather wild-guess) that this one might be a Q2 or Q3 objective for year 2018, as in simply being at a lower priority than other features such as the ones lots of users are complaining about being absent or malfunctioning.

Col said four months ago that a ticket had been created for this issue, so immediately is already off the table I think.

How do I find and access this ticket for this issue so I can see a company's filmography page on IMDb?

We users don't access tickets. Tickets are requests for IMDb developers to investigate or change software. We don't know when or if anything will result.

I remember Col Needham talked to me about linking the companies to the advanced search, and I'm basically happy for that as it would be better than nothing. I'm still waiting for this, and lately I've been wanting to ask when this will happen.

This is still not resolved and this needs to be fixed now! I have been waiting and waiting patiently for this and still god damn nothing! When is it going to be resolved and what date?!? We need answers damn it! If this is still not resolved by the end of the year, there is going to be some problems and a up-rise!

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Format company pages like actor/director pages.

I would really like it if the company pages were accessible again. I believe that the simplest way is to format each and every company page like an actor/director page, with the company's logo, description, country of origin and complete filmography laid out the same way an actor/director would. Is there any idea on if this can ever be done?

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Company credits access.

Over the years I contributed THOUSANDS of discrete additions and corrections to IMDb and now I find I am asked to pay $150 a year to access information on historical (meaning long defunct) film distributors through IMDb Pro. I would like to request a complimentary IMDb Pro membership so I can access this data moving forward. Everyone would agree, I am sure, that it's not right for IMDb to profit from my contributions AND to also ask me to pay for access to this same material. Thanks for helping me contact whomever can assist me in acquiring a complimentary Pro login.

Hey what's taking so long to fix the companies' pages?!?! Where are still waiting for so freaking long and still hasn't being fixed. It better be fixed by the end of the year or else!! Also why isn't my submission to that Craig of Creak episode with Del the Funky Homosipan  isn't coming up? The episode has Del and he isn't credited for it. Here is the link for it: https://contribute.imdb.com/updates/update?load=181029-020742-044000 and also the proof is in front of your faces! Also we still need answers on why the companies' pages are not fix now!

A quick update on this:  The new search system which is a prerequisite for the return of this functionality launched overnight (see https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/error-404-page-after-10-000-movies)

The company names on title/companycredits and company search results via /find will be redirected to the advanced title search results for the corresponding companies, effectively restoring the company filmography data (with more sorts and filters).  For example https://www.imdb.com/search/title?companies=co0319272

After all these months it would be nice if this was actually set out in a step by step way, i.e. something that doesn't redirect to IMDb Pro.  So instead of an example result as in the link above how about the example including what was entered to get it?

It has not launched yet, sorry, note the "will be" in the sentence above.

Thanks for the update. It's good to know that this information will once again be available on the regular IMDb site.
(I do wonder when admission numbers will be back though...)
