Add Free Movie Listing and Reviews for your Website
by FrosT

UPDATE
Please read EMovies Will no Longer be Supported

The code below is free, but no longer works.


Introduction
Emocium and Aeonity bring you code that was just released as Open Source. EMovies Movie Listings and Reviews v3 has been in the making for 3 years and was once sold for a price of $150. We are giving you this code for free. Since I am the author of the code I can release EMovies Movie Listings and Reviews v3 to the public. Read on for some insight into EMovies Movie Listings and Reviews and how it all works. Remember PHP and Apache is required for EMovies to run.

Webfetch Scripting
What is a webfetch you ask? A webfetch is a script that reads a webpage of another site off your server and grabs that content for manipulation by a certain script. EMovies Movie Listings and Reviews is simply a webfetch script that uses the Yahoo Movie Listings page to pull its results. Due to this fact the more popular the script gets on your server the higher risk of Yahoo blocking your IP. At a later time I may cook up a scheme to cache results. If someone else feels prompted to create a cache for this script, which would be awesome. If the results were cached and re-cached about every day or maybe even every Tuesday this would significantly reduce the requests to Yahoo which decreases the risk of your IP address getting blocked by Yahoo's Servers.

Does Yahoo Know?
As far as I know Yahoo does not know. I alerted them once before I started selling the script and had an Email stating we had the authority to sell it. Since than I lost that email and because of that selling the script is no longer a viable option due to legal reasons. I will not take any responsibility for actions taken against you from Yahoo. Use at your own risk.

EMovies Revision Histrory
When EMovies Movie Listings and Reviews first started out it was running a template system I created. This template system was not powerful enough and very hard to code. The code for EMovies Movie Listings and Reviews was also straight parse code, no functions or classes anywhere. Later on after I learned Object Oriented Programming, I implemented EMovies Movie Listings and Reviews to run off OOP. This significantly increased the speed and efficiency of EMovies Movie Listings and Reviews. At the same time OOP was incorporated into EMovies Movie Listings and Reviews I created a Search Engine Friendly script for Search Engine Optimization.

Currently the script provided is the SEO version of the script. This SEO version is not the same version that was deployed on Emocium.com due to a few reasons. After 1 month of the SEO script being implemented we ranked #1 on Google.com and Yahoo.com for any time of movie listing search. A person could find "Denver Movie Listings" and we would pull up #1 over any other results. We were averaging 15,000 hits a day. Well about a week after we hit this high volume of users Yahoo blocked our IP for a month. After that I figured it was not worth the risk to be banned permanently from Yahoo.com. Thus I trashed the original SEO script.

Note the current script is optimized, just not as hardcore as the older version. Once that happened I chose to revamp the script again using a new template system. The Easy Template System (ETS), in hope to provide an easier means of modifying the EMovies Movie Listings and Reviews templates. Remember if you need help with a template search Google.com for the Easy Template System. After the new template engine was released a few copies were sold and than EMovies Movie Listings and Reviews was left un-maintained. This was about a year ago. Since than I fixed the script to work and decided to release it to the general public.

What is Asked of Me for Using EMovies Script?
All I will ever ask of anyone who uses my EMovies Movie Listings and Reviews is to link back to Emocium.com on the site that uses EMovies Movie Listings and Reviews, or leave the Powered By information intact.

Ending Notes
The EMovies Movie Listings and Reviews script has worked for a long time. Anyone who knows how to code should be able to fix any problem arises. If not please contact me at frost [-at-] aeonity [-dot-] com and I can look into the issue. Please do not mis-use my EMovies Movie Listings and Reviews and remember to be courteous and link back to Emocium.com. That is all I ask for a script that cost many people $150 a year and a half ago. I do accept donations, if you would like to donate please use the button below under resources. Thank you.

UPDATE
V3.2 - Fixed movie times not displaying properly and added a new feature in config.php that will allow a user to set a specific zipcode to always display. If this variable is set to false it allows the user to choose the zipcode. Files update: emovfunc.php, process.php and config.php

There's a little bug in the theater list. For the "More Theaters..." link, it goes to a 404 page not found. It's supposed to go to Yahoo! but stays local. Can you please post a fix? happy.gif

Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the internet the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people think about worries that they plainly don't know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
