Movie Showtimes Plugin Update (Revisions - Round 1)

The following project is for freelancer user: gsco.

The following 15 changes and the appropriate details discussed via email are to be covered within the bid upon amount.

1) The plugin must be able to be deactivated on certain sites of the multi-site integration. For example, [url removed, login to view] will not be hosting any showtimes and is broken when the plugin is deactivated. I think this is related to this code being called regardless of the plugin being active or not.


if (is_front_page()) {




2) We would like to use a custom post type for the posts generated by the plugin. For example, adding a movie or event will generate a post that is of type 'Movies & Events' rather than 'Posts'.

In the future we plan on using custom taxonomies to track directors and starring actors.

3) Would it be possible to place the showtimes listing using a shortcode when editing a page in wordpress admin rather than this code:

<?php MovieShowtimes::showtimes()?>

This will give us flexibility in the future.

4) I'd like the "Location" and "Theatre Name" to be pre-entered and available as choices from a drop-down. For example, we could add a new option under 'Movie Showtimes' called 'Add Theatre". There would be two forms on this page... one to "Add a Location" and another to "Add a Theatre". When adding a "Theatre" you must specify the "Theatre Name", "Location" from a dropdown, link to "Map & Directions", and link to "Theatre Details".

On the front-end I would like to use dropdowns when filtering movies by location and theatre. When someone has chosen a location, only theatres within that location should populate the theatre dropdown.

This also will remove the step of needing to copy the 'map & directions' and 'theatre details' links when creating a new movie in the backend.

5) By default, un-check allow comments and allow trackbacks on generated movie post.

6) Move "details" from movies details box to showtimes listing. See screenshot.

7) Please automatically mark all movies before 6:00pm a matinee. A movie that starts at 6:00pm is not a matinee.

8) I seem to be getting an error when editing showtimes after already posted. See screenshot: [url removed, login to view]

9) Can we make 'genre' a multiple select field with the following options: Action, Adventure, Animation, Biography, Comedy, Crime, Documentary, Drama, Family, Fantasy, Film-Noir, Game-Show, History, Horror, Music, Musical, Mystery, News, Reality-TV, Romance, Sci-Fi, Sport, Talk-Show, Thriller, War, Western

10) Dates should be formatted as mm/dd/yyyy. Times should be formatted in 12 hours (am / pm).

11) I'd like to make the following change to the home page movie showtime listing. I'd like to remove the current place where it says the "location" and use it as more of a heading. See screenshot: [url removed, login to view] This is also how they use the location on [url removed, login to view]

12) The movies search page should only display listings from one day at a time. Multiple theatres under 1 location should be listed under the same location. Also, the movie details should be listed under the individual listings. See screenshot: [url removed, login to view]

Also, the movie details appear to be incorrect on this page as well. When marked Stadium Seating, Digital Sound --> it displays Stadium Seating, 3D.

To clarify, the movie settings set in the backend of Wordpress are not the same ones showing in the front end. For example, if I mark Stadium Seating and Digital Sound in the backend, then.... Stadium Seating and 3D appear on the frontend. Not sure why this error is happening. Let me know if you don't understand or don't see this problem.

13) This is a new specification. I'd like the ability to duplicate showtimes. This will tremendously speed up the addition of showtimes for multiple locations/theatres.

Out of characters. See email.
