This should be maybe be referred to as "Col's Initial IMDb Freedive Recommendations" or "Col's Opening IMDb Freedive Recommendations", since we don't know if the title selection will be available on Freedive in perpetuity. Thoughts?

The influx of contents limit our capability to catch up all those good old contents.

The reason for not watching those titles is actors and actresses Like Bogey and Bacall or Hepburn and Tracey, Cary Grant, Et Al.
Play it. Play as Time Goes by!
We'll always have Paris, but not enough time to watch everything when there are classics that we need to watch to remind us that for all the bad movies that grace our lives, there will always be your favorite snugly blanket always there to greet you.

Hello Dan, since it was a minor change, I've done the edit in IMDb app. I didn't know that if we make the changes in the app, the hyperlinks would be converted to non-clickable links. Surely I'll edit it and resubmit

That should not happen. It's possible IMDb made some changes in the list software that causes that issue. I will have to check this out.

anoopj226,

I just checked. I was not able to replicate the issue.

If you have continued problems with links being converted to non-clickable links we will have to find out if you are doing anything that could precipitate this.

Hi Dan Dassow,

Please see below the problem. I've edited all the hyperlinks in the web browser and made a minor change in the IMDb app, the same way, all the hyperlinks got changed to non-clickable links mentioned as text in the description. You can see both screenshots, before and after I made the change in the app.


Before making the change in the app, all hyperlinks were properly functioning.


After making the minor edit in the IMDb app, all the hyperlinks got automatically edited to texts.

anoopj226,

I noticed that you are using the Google Chrome web browser.

I tried editing a test list (https://www.imdb.com/list/ls041477650/) with the same formatting and still couldn't replicate the problem.

When we edit it in a web browser there won't be any problem, however if we do any kind of edit using a mobile phone IMDb app, this problem arouses. I used IMDb app for the iPhone to edit it.

anoopj226,

Thanks for the information. I've had problems editing lists in the IMDb apps. This makes sense.

When I get a chance I will try to edit my test case in the IMDb Kindle Fire app.

anoopj226,

I've confirmed that editing a list with links in the Kindle Fire app will expand the links and make them non-clickable. I suspect this is the behavior for all of the IMDb apps.

This is some kind of a technical glitch, in iPhone app the hyperlinks are displayed as texts only. Please see attached the screenshot for your reference.

Anoop,

The IMDb technical staff may have done this on purpose. IMDb has had problems in the past with spammers using lists to link to illegal streaming sites, Asian online casinos and other unsavory content. IMDb disabled links to non-IMDb content in the previous version of the web-based list software to combat this spam.
